Day 40

Fall 09 English 101 Day 40

  1. Here's the offer: Flexible due dates for essay three.
    1. If you turn in your essays on the assigned due date, (November 24th) I will return them to you the Monday or Tuesday after Thanksgiving. This is the original plan and allows you to choose from all three essays for one to revise. It's the safest bet.
    2. If you turn in your essay Tuesday after Thanksgiving (December 1st), I will grade it and return it to you with your grade at the end of the quarter. You won't be able to revise it for a final score. This should be an option only for those of you who know for sure you want to revise one of the first two essays and not the third. Or, it could be an option for those of you who have not yet put in the work needed on this essay for whatever reason. It's a riskier play, but one that works for some people.
  2. Outlines with Topic Sentences—handback. They should make a clear paragraph if you put them together. They could make a chunk of your intro paragraph.
  3. Essays from the other class due by the end of the period.
  4. Peer review reviews due by end of period on Friday.
  5. Friday—transitions, outlines, sample essays.
  6. Monday—how to grade this essay and a group peer edit for one paper.
  7. Tuesday—essays due.
  8. Wednesday—the plan for the final week of the quarter.

Now, work/research/peer review/type/ask questions.
