  • Read my final Announcement page for some final thoughts on this class.
  • We’ll gather one more time to share and celebrate what we’ve accomplished in this class.
  • Be ready to share a piece of your writing with the class (this is optional). If you don’t want to read it yourself, I can read it or ask a classmate to read it for you. Please choose something short, so everyone has a chance to participate. If we have time, we’ll have a second round!


  • Journal 10: If you could write a letter to a future student of this class, what would you tell them? Write a post in which you do the following:
    • Write a brief letter to someone entering my class next semester and prepare them for this course.
      • Introduce yourself and tell the reader why you are writing to them.
      • Choose one or two readings and/or assignments that have stayed with you; mention these to your reader and why you found them compelling.
      • Reflect on your experiences of being an online student; give your reader some advice regarding how to succeed in this area.
      • Conclude by sharing your thoughts on how and/or why this class (and what you learned in it) may be useful to you in future courses, a future career, and/or in any other aspect of your life!
  • Title it Student Name, Journal #10 and post it under Journals by 11:59 PM on Tuesday, May 25, 2021.
