9/12 – Writing Day

Today is our first true writing day, and your first proposal is due no later than today. It will look something like what we set up last week:

We’ll talk briefly about some of the nuts and bolts of our writing days:

  • Quiet atmosphere rules.
  • Conference requests via your name on the board (and PS: use eraser, not fingers to erase please).
  • No “Can you read this and tell me what you think” conferences. Your proposal will be handled in the order it was received.
  • If you’ve submitted your proposal/draft and are waiting for feedback, you may work on your annotated bibliography (reading or writing) OR start studying Quizlet words OR work on class reading & lab book assignments. You may not use this time to work on another class.

Also, I’ll give you a short tutorial on how to handle my comments, revisions, and Google:

  • Check your email not just your comments.
  • Never change a draft or resolve a comment
  • Start revision process by making a copy and changing the title of the file.
  • Make all revisions on the NEW copy so the old one remains intact.

And remember: ALL PAPER CORRESPONDENCE goes to the mrsbpapers address.
