Formal Essays

During the semester, you will write three essays. You can choose to write three shorter essays or use Pieces 2 and 3 to build on the previous pieces. For each piece, you will write five to seven new pages of writing, and build on two new Beginnings writings. Each essay should be 5-7 pages. If you are adding to a previous essay then 5- new pages of text should be written. We will workshop essays in class using a variety of methods and I will meet with you in groups for readings to provide feedback to help you revise before turning in the final essay.

For each essay use a folder with two pockets to hand in the following: Final draft of the essay Workshop draft of the essay Two sets of Beginnings writings written in the weeks before that helped shaped the essay
