THE DETAILS…

Welcome to the final week, crew.  I will re-iterate my admiration of all the work you’ve done—and it’s been *a lot.*. Thank you for joining me this June for a fabulous course.

As you know, the course ends this week, and so I am posting the final 2 assignments together below.  Several details on each of our things to do:

  1. Be sure to read the Essay 3 assignment sheet and draft this essay if you want extra credit; great for those of you wanting to boost your final grade.
  2. If you haven’t yet, read the MLA Citation Guide (link above) and use it twhen you comment on 8 classmates’ Essay 2s. You don’t have to limit yourself to commenting on MLA Citation and Works Cited stuff, but please comment on at least one citation change 1 classmate could make.
  3. Please be sure the link to your Google Drive folder (your final portfolio) is working. This is the link you submitted during week 1. If you’re not sure your previous link was shared correctly, you can re-submit your info on the form here. Here’s what to make sure you’ve put in the folder:

–Essay 1 | first draft, final draft, and a brief note on the revisions you made
–Essay 2 | |first draft, final draft, and a brief note on the revisions you made
–Essay 3 (optional)
–4 Listening Logs
–3 Revised blog posts | for each post, include: 1 original, 1 revised. (1 doc for all of this, please)
–Final Exam

NOTE: Please be sure you’ve made a revision note describing the changes/additions you’ve made to both Essay 1 and 2.  This note can be a separate document or at the beginning of your final drafts.

DUE: Thu, noon.

  1. Complete the final exam in no more than 75-minutes. I want your essay for this to be quick, but super thoughtful; well-explained but not necessarily polished. Don’t worry too much about grammar and citation and formatting.  DO worry about the connections between ideas in different sentences; making effective paragraphs and paragraph breaks; establishing connections between paragraphs.  This is what I’ll be looking for.  NOT a five-paragraph essay, but something more innovative and creative than that.  THANK YOU—Peace! M
