Final Performances: Instructions for Preparing your Book Introduction, Final Paper, and Final Portfolio
By 12:30 on Friday, December 16, the group should post its REVISED INTRODUCTION AND TABLE OF CONTENTS on-line.
In addition, by the same deadline, each of you has due both your final paper on-line, and in a portfolio, in which we're asking you to collect and reflect on all the spoken and written work you have done for this course. The portfolio invites you to chronicle what has happened in your evolution both as a writer and a speaker in class, and to contribute to and assist us with the evaluation of your work. So--
Gather together everything youve written for this class: copies of each of your postings on the course website, the marked copies of your first two papers and first draft of your book "introduction." Include as well a copy of the revised introduction to your book and your final paper (the latter must also be posted on-line). Arrange the material in a folder, chronologically, back to front.
Review all youve gathered together in the portfolio; ruminate for a while on what youre seeing as you do so. Then write a short essay tracing where you were when we began this process, where you are now, and whats been happening in between:
Thanks to you all, for what you have taught us in the work we have been doing together--
