Final Essay Instructions

Your final essay is due on Monday, December 18 at the time your class starts (4:00 or 5:30 PM).

For full credit on the essay, you must turn in your final essay along with a typed letter in response to my letter with suggestions to revision. Tell me what changes you made or did not make, based on my suggestions and/or your own assessment.

You can turn the essay in:

  • on Blackboard
  • in my mailbox (in N651, which is the Social Sciences department- open 9:00-5:00)
  • in my office, on the 18th. I will be in my office from 4:00-6:00 PM.

for Monday, December 11– some more notes

here is my note again, with some additions:

We are almost at the end of the semester!

Monday, December 11 is our last class.

On Monday, 12/11:

*You will turn in your exam (available on the course website under Assignments) on Blackboard or in hard copy by the start time of class. No late exams will be accepted.

*I will return your essays to you with comments and suggestions for revision.

The final essay is due back to me on December 18, at the start time of your class. No late essays will be accepted.

*If you want to turn any revised essays, your last chance is December 11– remember you must include the original, the revision, and a paragraph that explains what you changed/revised.

*We will do an end-of-semester reflection in class.

*Please fill out the BMCC evaluation for this class. You can find it here: TINYURL.COM/BMCCEVAL

If your class gets up to a 90% response rate– which is very possible, and most of my classes do get to this rate– I will give everyone an extra credit point on their final grade.

*OPTIONAL: I will bring cards that you can fill out/sign to send to Bresha Meadows, Ky Peterson or other criminalized survivors in prison. I will take the cards and stamp/mail them after class.

dear all:

On Monday, what you need to turn in:

*the draft of Essay #5 that you want me to review (hard copy or on Blackboard)
*a note indicating any specific areas on which you want feedback  (in other words: what do you think is working/not working? what do you want to improve?)
*the peer review sheet that you received from your reviewer.
Have a great weekend!
