This Wednesday we will have our final Zoom call in which we will loop back to Gloria Naylor’s text on “A Word’s Meaning…”–the one we read at the beginning of the semester. This time we’ll be scanning it for tricks it can teach us for writing a better Essay 3. Please have a look if you can, before the Zoom. It is quite short.
Also, as mentioned last week, final portfolios are due this week by the end of the day Wednesday. Let me know if you need an extra day or two of time to finish. I’ll be looking here for a link to your Google folder containing the below items; please be sure you’ve clicked on that link < and shared your Google Folder with me (otherwise, you run the risk of my thinking you dropped the class). Here’s the stuff to make sure is in your Google folder:
–Essay 1 (2-3 drafts, meaning 2-3 different files)
–Essay 2 (2 drafts, meaning 2 different files)
–Essay 3 (optional grade boost, but most of you will want this if you’ve missed work)
–3 Revised OpenLab Friday Prompts (this can be one document but be sure to include your original post, my comments, and your revised post)
–Revision Reflection (~1 page: at least 1 paragraph describing the *specific* revisions you made to Essay 1; at least 1 paragraph describing revisions to Essay 2; at least 1 paragraph describing how your writing has changed this semester and/or how you’ve begun to think about writing—and/or reading—differently since the summer)
As always, email me with questions. Good luck!
