Reminder: Editor Papers due the night of the group’s presentation

Remember, if you are Editor, your paper is due the night of the group’s presentation. So editors from groups 3 and 4 should hand in their papers by midnight tonight. Editors from groups 1 and 2 should have handed their paper in last Thursday, etc. If you ever miss a deadline for this class, try to get the work in as soon as you can afterwards.

Thanks for the presentations today, see you all on Thursday!

Written Report Grades Posted

Dear Class, 

I received a fantastic set of written papers from this class, one of the best sets I’ve ever received. On the whole they were really well done! I’m looking forward to your presentations, coming up soon. In the meantime, I suggest looking at your graded papers on turnitin.com, and thinking about how you can improve or tweak your arguments for the group presentation. 

I’ll see you in a little while for our guest lecture this afternoon. 

Best, 

Dr. M

Handout 3 on group presentations now posted

Dear Class, 

It is hard to believe that group presentations are starting in just two weeks! You can see the date your group is assigned by looking at the class schedule. Groups 1+2 will kick off the presentations on May 6. 

I have now posted some brief instructions, as well as the rubric, for group presentations. You can see it here: 

https://openlab.citytech.cuny.edu/macdougallphil2203idsp2021/files/2021/04/3.-Group-Presentation-Assignment-and-Rubric.pdf

It is very similar to the paper assignment, except that the group must deliberate together to come up with a shared thesis. See the sheet for more details. 

Let me know if you have any questions!

Reminder: Papers due tomorrow, before midnight!

Dear Class, 

Please remember that written reports for the case study are due tomorrow before midnight, on turnitin.com! (For all roles except Editor–Editor papers due on the day of the group presentation).

Remember to upload your paper at least a few minutes before it is due, so that you have time to use the originality checker, and resubmit before midnight if there is a problem! You cannot resubmit the assignment after midnight. 

Best, 

Dr. M

Reminder: No synchronous class today
