Happy holidays, beloved scholars!
When we return, we begin Task 4 and we start reading dystopias (Fahrenheit 451, Animal Farm, 1984 and Brave New World)–but most of you should have NO HOMEWORK over the break.
In terms of Task 3 Papers:
- At 3:00 today I will stop accepting papers until after break. Any paper submitted to me after this time will have an “in date” of January 3.
- Task 3 is supposed to end January 4. Most of you are ready for critical reflections/rubrics, so we’re all in good shape. If that’s all you have to hand in, waiting until after break is just fine since…
- I will also NOT be grading Task 3 until we return. As you know, I prefer to wait until I have most of the rubrics in and then process them en masse. It helps me get a better sense of our overall strengths and weaknesses as a group, and helps me focus writing instruction a bit more.
Enjoy your time off. You deserve it.
(Oh, and if you see Will B – tell him WOW. ‘Cause his voice was really SOMETHING in the winter show today, huh?)
