• One of the benefits of writing as an academic is the opportunity to share your ideas with a larger audience of interested scholars. For today's freewrite, I'd like you to consider the impact and significance of your research and freewrite for 5-10 minutes about it.


Before we get started on today's classwork, I'd like you to assess your experience with the First Year Program by taking this survey (marked by the big red arrow). There are more surveys that you should have received in your student email. Please check your email and complete those surveys also.

Presentation Preparation

  • For today's class, you have the opportunity to discuss and plan your presentation materials with me individually. You can work on this on your own or with your classmates, but be sure to ask me for help if you need it!


  • Be prepared to present on your assigned day!
