Week 2 update

Next week we will shift gears from reading to writing. On Monday, we'll try to revisit the purpose of this assignment and you'll have some time to brainstorm and write in class. We'll also talk about citing, which is another significant part of using sources in academic writing. You don't have anything due for this time.

On Wednesday, your first draft is due. You'll be turning this in online--we'll talk about how that will work on Monday. In class, we'll talk about peer revision, you'll have time to revise, and we'll begin talking about formal style in academic writing.

No class on Friday this week--enjoy the day off! Peer revision groups will meet the following Monday, which will be a big revision week!
