Happy Monday everyone — I hope that you all had nice weekends 🙂

Great job with the work last week! This week we’ll be focusing primarily on composing your first drafts of the Unit 1: Education Narrative assignment and then peer reviewing this work in small groups.

We will also continue to work on Writing as Process, Close Reading / Annotations (with a discussion of Perusall), and Blogging. I’ll be rolling out Writing Workshops / Class Discussions on these topics throughout the week, and these will require your participation when they go live (I’ll post comments here letting you know when they do). I’m looking forward to engaging more with you in these spaces throughout the week!

But for now, I want you to focus on writing your Unit 1 first drafts. Review (and participate in) my Writing Workshop on the assignment, read / annotate Anne Lamott’s “Shitty First Drafts in Perusall (this is a very short piece), and then get into composing your first drafts.

As always, all details and links for this week’s work can be found on the Schedule page.
