May 2009 Listing
Graduating seniors, I have to report your grades early. That means the last day you can submit work is May 1.
I don't think we will have to rearrange any of the other due dates, but if you'd like to meet with me in order to get faster feedback, I'd be happy to save some time for you.
There is no final exam, but in case we fall behind please be aware that I may call a make-up class on this date.
Submit an electronic version of your term paper to turnitin.com.
(A previous version of this page had more specific information, and I encourage you to blog about anything that was important to your journey through Lit Crit, but you can include all that in the regular Portfolio III -- you don't have to produce any additional separate documents for the term paper.)
Yes, this portfolio will be relatively brief.
Include an entry on your own term project, the term paper peer review activity, and a cover entry that reflects on your accomplishments since January.
After you have seen your peer term project presentations, add another blog entry that reflects on some of those presentations. (Also, please leave 2-4 comments on your peer's term project blog entries. I will remind you of this during class Thursday -- I realize you can't do this part until after you've seen your peer's presentations.)
Each student will have about 10 minutes of class time for their term projects.
Other than participation in the term project day, there is no final exam.
