ZobelHSU Eng 100Working Calendar
When you arrive for class, you should be prepared to:
Discuss the readings due that day;Discuss the readings from the prior class (i.e. review them before class);Have printed out, typed up hard copy of the written assignment IF there is one due;Be prepared with writing utensils, etc.;Have any questions about readings, assignments, course issues, etc., ready;Be ready to take a quiz on the readings for that day;Be awake, engaged, coherent, and involved.
In every class we:
May, or may not, discuss the readings for that day or from the previous class;Will likely have and use time to revise, write, and edit our work. This means you need to always bring the most recent working copies of ALL of your assignments. This means: until you turn WP #1 in,you should bring in the latest draft of each of your assignments. If you have not written it yet, do notstress. If you have written some work, bring it with you!
Doing the suggested outside class writing—the final column—will generate more drafts, give you moreexperience doing revisions, and shuttle you along your way to success. It is not required. However, youdo have to write your revised and your portfolio drafts at some point—and most of this writing will take place out of the classroom. Some of this can take place during the open writing/revision sessions, but youneed to work on these things on your own. Look at the deadline, look at the check off lists on the WP handouts, and make sure you are on track.
For specific instructions for each assignment, be sure to refer to your Working Portfolio handout whichlays out the exact criteria for scoring.
