Whenever I get a writing assignment I like to give myself some time but I also wait until almost last minute so I start like 4-5 hours before it is due. I don’t always write drafts but if I already know my assignment sometimes on the train I would use my notes app to plan out my assignment and the parts that I want to include so that I don’t forget. Once I’m done I like to edit and re-read my work at least 4 times to make sure I don’t miss anything. I would like to improve on giving myself more time so that my work could be a lot better and not rushed.
Professor: Jessica Penner
Class Meetings & Times: Mondays & Wednesdays, 4-5:40 PM, in Namm 521
Office Hours: Tuesdays and Thursdays, 12 – 1 PM. I’ll be available through Zoom and will send an invitation via email that you should keep all semester. Try to join my meeting at the start of the hour, not at the end—since I may be talking to other students or have another appointment after the hour is up. If those times don’t work with your schedule, we can schedule a different time. This means you’ll have to schedule an appointment in advance via email. I suggest you have multiple times in mind, since your schedule may not mesh with mine!
