Notes for Today
Last Week: We’re down to the last week in the course, so there is a lot to finish. Pace yourself to make sure you finish in a timely way.
Reading Quizzes: The chapter quizzes for the textbook are all due by 11:59 PM on Thursday, January 12. If you need more time, take advantage of the grace period, which ends at 11:59 PM on Friday, January 13.
Readings for Today
- Markel, Chapter 12, “Writing Informational Reports” (for tips on progress reports)
- Example Progress Reports
Work for Today
Write a progress report in your word processor that tells me
- what you have completed for your Genre Analysis Report
- what work you still have to do for your Genre Analysis Report
- how you plan to complete the remaining work for your Genre Analysis Report
Include any questions or concerns you have that may affect your progress. Use headings and design to make your report easy to read and understand. Aim for about 150 to 200 words. Specifically, go beyond simply saying, "I’m on track," to state exactly what is done and what is still on your to-do list. Upload your Progress Report in Quizzes in Canvas.
Continue work on your Genre Analysis Report, which is due on Wednesday, January 11. Aim to have the basic information you need gathered before the weekend so you can begin concentrating on writing your report.
