Week 13: Individual Conferences and a Rough Draft Workshop

Quinn WarnickWeekly Updates

We’re rapidly approaching the home stretch of the semester, and I want to make sure you’re able to focus all of your energy for this class on your Research Project, so I’ve decided to eliminate our final day of reading discussion on Tuesday. Instead, I’ll hold individual conferences with those of you who would like to meet (I hope that’s everyone; sign up here). When we reconvene as a class on Thursday, you should be ready to share an early draft of your paper/project/website/etc. with your classmates. That’s a full week away, so if you pace yourself, you should be able to avoid a Wednesday-night crisis. (Or at least minimize it!)

Remember: if you’re still collecting data for your project, you should plan to complete that work no later than Friday, April 24th. It’s important to “lock in” your data set a couple of weeks before your paper is due so you can focus on analyzing the data and writing up your findings.

I’m looking forward to meeting with you early next week, but if you need anything before then, just let me know.
