For Sunday 5/17: Final Exam Reading / Essay Revision & Writing

0.  First and foremost, read Brittny’s Essay 2 and give her some feedback on it.

00.  Revised versions of Essay 1 and Essay 2 are due next week at finals.  If you haven’t received feedback yet on one or both of these essays, please e-mail ASAP the City Tech Writing Center at

to set up an online tutoring appointment.

007. In preparation for our final exam, please read the attached article that the exam essay will ask you to respond to.  It would be helpful to you to

a) understand (and underline!) the author(s)’s name(s), the article title, the thesis of the article, and 2-3 main points that support the thesis.

b) underline and try to understand any words you don’t understand but which seem interesting or important; you can look them up in a dictionary if after re-reading the passage you still can’t fully grasp their meaning.

No need to post anything to the blog for Sunday, but you can if you’d like.

That said, all unfinished blog work will expected to have been posted by next week (as this will be factored into your final grade).  Please check your grades and keep me posted as you complete unfinished posts.

Best to you all–I can’t believe we’re so close to the end!
