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.
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.)
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.
A polished document, 10-12 pages long. I will not mark grammar or MLA style issues, but I will give you feedback that will help make your ideas stronger.
Apply cultural-historical criticism to any of the works we have studied.
More than simply a proposed thesis statement, the Presubmission Report asks you to provide a bibliography in MLA style, a full thesis paragraph, at least one supporting paragraph, and a preliminary conclusion.
In addition to uploading it to Turnitin.com, bring a printout to class, so that we can do some peer workshopping.
Apply poststructuralism to any of our literary works.
You might also want to look ahead at the additional requirements of Portfolio III, so that you can plan your time wisely.
