Final grades posted

Final grades have been posted on WebVista. I intend to submit them formally on Wednesday. Let me know if you have any questions or see any problems between now and then. If you'd like to set up a time to pick up your portfolio (there's only a score on them, no comments) please let me know.

Grade notes

It is now past 4 PM, and so I am no longer accepting any coursework.

I will try to have tentative grades posted by Tuesday night or Wednesday morning-hopefully no later than noon. I will submit them formally Thursday, so you may want to look at them before then in case there's any questions or problems.

I have held on to your portfolios--let me know if you'd like to pick them up and we can set up a time.

Have a good break!

Please check grades

I've uploaded your most current grades to WebVista. Please check now to see if there's any inaccuracies. Attendance can be hard to verify at this point, but if there's any assignment errors, let me know ASAP.

Week 14 (and last) update

Next week we finish up everything. On Monday, you'll have most of the class time to work on your portfolios. We'll do a little workshopping at the end of that class time. I'll also announce the winners of each debate during that time.

Wednesday is our last class. We'll talk about how this course has gone. I'm also inviting you all to bring snacks/food of your choice to share. We may have a 1/2 hour or so to watch a food related film--if there's one you'd like to nominate, bring it to class.

Portfolios are due Friday by 4 PM (though I will accept them whenever you're done). I'll be in my office Thursday from 10 (or earlier) until 2 and again for most of the day on Friday. If I'm not around during business hours, you can leave portfolios in 150 Wesbrook, the First Year Writing office next door to my office.

I hope you felt this course was worth your time and gave you a variety of experiences with both research and writing. I appreciated your work and always learn from the information and ideas you write about.
