- Starting off for today, we'll be discussing the Major Writing Projects that will be due at the end of the semester in the final portfolio
So What are Major Writing Projects 1 and 2?
- I want you to read the instructions for Major Writing Projects 1 and 2, as well as the Evaluation Criteria. Once you are done reading, I want you to get into groups and discuss any questions you have about the assignments, requirements, and criteria. We will then get back together as a class and discuss any questions we have.
Expectations of Major Writing Assignments 1 and 2 Process
- Below is all the parts of the process that you MUST use and work towards as you're drafting and peer responding.
- It is important for you to stay on top of the process and KEEP ALL DRAFTS. To help you do this -- you will upload all edits, rewrites, and notes into the OneDrive folders "Major Writing Project 1" and "Major Writing Project 2". You will create a folder within each of those with your name on it. This is where you will upload your first draft into, and then each new draft will be uploaded into the folder.
- This includes, but is not limited to:
- Drafts of work in progress
- Sharing and responding
- Proofreading and edit
- Remember to use your resources when coming up with these drafts
- Now that we have talked about them, I want you to spend some time working on these Writing Projects
- This can either be working on the drafts, looking at magazines you would be interested in writing towards, or continuing to research
- Use your time wisely
- With the last ten minutes of class, take five minutes to write a short reflection on what you accomplished in class today
- The other five minutes I want to be used for a group check-up to see where you are at for the seminar project
- For homework, create a rough draft of the Writing Project 1 and upload it into your folder on OneDrive
- While this may seem like a lot, remember that once you get into your specified field of engineering, you will be writing reports and proposals that may be similar to these
