This is the post for the week of August 7, 2017.
This week you will finish working on your Genre Analysis Report, and then you’ll turn the report in by 11:59PM on Tuesday, August 8, 2017. You will also work on your Final Exam, which is due by 11:59 PM on Monday, August 14, 2017. There is no grace period for the final.
Readings for This Week
Our remaining readings relate to your final exam:
- Final Exam Assignment
- Similar Exam Examples by Students (note that the focus of the examples differs from your assignment)
- Advice on Writing Self-Evaluations
- How to Talk About Your Accomplishments Without Sounding Braggy and Annoying
- A Guide to Giving Your Cats Their Annual Performance Review (yes, it’s silly, but some ideas may apply to your final)
Tasks for This Week
At this point, all your attention will be on finishing your work in the course. Share drafts with your group for feedback as you need to.
- By 11:59 PM on Tuesday, August 8, submit your Genre Analysis Report in Canvas. The grace period ends at 11:59 PM on Friday, August 11.
- By 11:59 PM on Friday, August 11, submit all outstanding revisions for your Major Projects. To ensure that I have time to grade everything before course grades are due, I will not accept revisions after August 11. If you have some incredible issue that causes you trouble meeting this deadline (for example, you were trampled when you participated in the running of the bulldogs), let me know immediately. I will be reasonable, but I have to be relatively firm about this date.
- Complete the SPOT survey. You should include completing the survey as evidence of work in your Final Exam. I cannot see your responses until after the course grades are submitted, so I will trust your statement in your final. Here’s the response rate as of 1 AM Sunday, August 6:
- By 11:59 PM on Monday, August 14, review your Labor Log and submit your Final Exam in Canvas.
- The Final Exam Assignment is on the course website, with examples that are similar to the work you will do.
- Remember that your exam must include a conclusion of the grade you should receive for the course.
- Your grades are private and protected by FERPA; therefore, there is no peer review requirement for the final. You may share drafts if you want to, but that is your own individual decision.
- There is no grace period for the exam.
