Session 28: Follow Up Post with Finals Week Information

Thanks for reading in today’s class everyone. It was good to hear your words and to hear which writing assignments produced your favorite pieces. There were excerpts of poetry, fiction, and memoir, and one free write. We’ve done a lot of work this semester!

As was discussed in class, you have three things coming up this week:

  1. Final Reflective Activity: on Blackboard, Thursday, May 19 in the early am through end of the day on Friday. (48 hours) This last assignment, which is worth 5% of your course grade. This is not a test of the readings. It will ask you to review the work you’ve done this semester with questions and answers of 1-2 paragraphs. We were originally going to do this in class, but I felt that doing the assignment online will make this less of “timed” test and more of the actual reflective process.
  2. Creative Writing Survey:  This very short survey asks about student interest in several creative writing courses that are in development in the English department. This activity will constitute the way I take attendance for Tuesday, May 24. Make sure to input your City Tech email so I know who you are. Link is now live HERE:
  3. Memoir Revisions and Late Assignments: The Memoir Folder will open on Thursday, May 19 and close at the end of the day on Sunday, May 22. For information on the Revision Note that must be included with revisions and other details see this post: Instructions for Memoir Revisions (and Late Assignments)

As always, I’m available on email for questions: or during my office hours on ZOOM. Office hours are Tuesdays and Thursdays on ZOOM: .

Write on and good luck during finals week,
Prof. Sears
