This assignment is advance work on your "Individual Learning Plan" (ILP). Bring an electronic copy of your ILP draft to class. You will share it with your peers, and I will circulate through the room and discuss it with each of you
Below you will find questions that are designed to get you thinking about the issues that will be important to your ILP. When fully developed over the course of several related assignments, your ILP will be a brief personal essay, that emphasizes the goals and strategies that are most important to you, with evidence to provide justification for your choices, and promises (to yourself) about what you will do this term to reach those goals.
Bring an electronic version of your assignment to class. (Bring your iPad or your MacBook -- whichever you wish.)
Your objectives are to demonstrate your ability to
- focus on a single subject, and
- craft a well-organized paragraph with a topic sentence, supporting details, and a conclusion.
