Also, we’re almost at the semester’s half way point: TAKE CARE OF YOURSELVES. Find a pause. Have a tea. Ask for support.
1) We will have rough draft paper editing meetings on Friday afternoon. We’ll sign up in class that morning before you give your presentations.
2) Because of Celia Rowlson Hall’s visit to comp class (on October 19!), the comp syllabus has been adjusted slightly. Please see the new syllabus on Blackboard, and note the change to class tomorrow.
1) Your 5 minute oral presentations are not Powerpoint presentations. But, you can use technology! If you have questions about this, please email Sal and Al, so we can help you determine what is appropriate and possible at MGF.
2) Branch out and try new technique classes. Please share your cheap class recommendations with each other (and us!).
