The more you read, the better you write. Students are expected to complete all required readings on time. Supplemental readings will greatly increase your confidence in the course and improve your chances for success.
You will write at least two drafts each of four major essays (Workshop Draft & Teacher’s Draft). You will revise at least two of those even further to earn the desired grade on the Final Portfolio.
To practice our writing and communicate with our classmates and occasionally larger audiences, we will do a variety of short and informal, assigned homework writings. These will be posted on our personal blogs by the due date to qualify for full credit.
