Below are some announcements/reminders:
Please remember that we are not meeting tomorrow/Wednesday, 11/22– use this time to work on your next/final Essay #5 (instructions are up under “Assignments”) or on any revisions that you want to make to previous essays.
I had previously said that you could turn in any revisions by Monday 11/27, but I will extend this to Monday, December 4. You can turn in any revision for any essay, 1-4, by Monday, December 4. Remember that you must turn in the original essay with my comments + a paragraph that explains what change you made along with the new/revised essay.
Read the chapter by Mogul et al about policing of gender and sexuality.
We will do Reading Worksheet #11 in class on Monday.
DUE: First draft of Essay #5 for in-class peer review.
I have not been able to get into Blackboard (due to a service interruption) and therefore, the Folder for Essay #4 just became available to you.
If you were planning to turn your essay in on Blackboard: I will extend the deadline to MIDNIGHT tonight, so you can upload your essay after class (in case this folder delay affected you).
If you are turning in a hard copy, please bring it to class as you planned.
See you later.
Reading worksheet #11 will be a writing exercise in-class on Monday, November 27. The writing exercise will be about the film, Out in the Night, which we will watch in class on Monday 11/20 and Monday 11/27.
