This week, I propose shifting the scheduled work to Week 8 and using Week 7 to catch up on the 750-1000-Word Expanded Definition Project. This means, I want you to use the time that you would have spent watching a longer lecture to work on your Expanded Definition: complete your first draft, give and receive feedback via peer review, get additional peer review during your drafting (as per the short lecture above), and complete a final draft of your Expanded Definition, which I will give you instructions for submitting next week.
There’s no additional Weekly Writing Assignment–complete peer review by giving and receiving feedback to receive that credit.
We will pick things up on submitting your Expanded Definition and beginning the Instruction Manual Project next week. If you have questions after watching the lecture above, email me at jellis at citytech.cuny.edu or stop by my office hours on Wednesday, Oct. 7 between 3:00pm-5:00pm or by appointment.
Grades are almost ready on the Article Summary Project. I’m very proud of the work many of you put into your work. Of course, I hope you will all consider revising your writing to make it even stronger before it goes into your professional portfolio or for a publishing opportunity.
Also, check out the Opportunities link in the navigation menu on the left for some things that I talk about in the lecture that would be beneficial to you.
