Week 12: Monday, November 7 – Sunday, November 13

Hi everyone, and happy Monday!

Before we get into this week’s work, a friendly reminder that tomorrow (Tuesday, November 8) is Election Day, so if you haven’t already (and you are eligible to do so), please remember to vote! Your voice and vote matter!

Congrats on finishing another formal assignment — that’s awesome! You should be proud of yourselves for successfully making it through the research component of the course (that’s always a challenging one).

I’m really looking forward to reading through the final drafts of your Unit 2 assignment, and to having us continue the work on these topics through this next assignment. So let’s get into Unit 3 …

Throughout the semester, we’ve been exploring texts and sources from variety of different genres. In Unit 3, you’ll be writing about the topic you researched in Unit 2 for an audience of your choosing– so now it’s time to think about what genre you think will best reach your audience!

The Unit 3: Writing in a New Genre assignment is up, as is a new Writing Workshop to guide you through the process. There is also a reading posted in Perusall for you to read and annotate, and there is a blog due in response. Later this week, you’ll be sharing your Unit 3 proposals.

As always, all details are posted on the Schedule page.

If you have questions, drop a comment below, send me an email, &/or come to see me in my Office Hours on Thursday. Please note the time change for that this week’s Office Hours: they are on Th 11/10 from 10:00-11:00am.

This week’s low-stakes class discussion is an open mic, so share anything you’d like, on any front. The only requirement is that everyone should drop a comment here by EOD (end-of-day) Monday (11/7) to get in the Week 12 discussion.

Thanks all, and have a wonderful week 🙂
