How will I determine whether or not a blog post is of sufficient quality to “count”? I won’t. You will. Each week two of you will read the posts by the rest of the class and assess them. If you deem posts insufficient, you will ask that student to revise them accordingly.

 

Tutorials: We will meet in small groups based upon your area of focus to discuss your writing. We may not discuss every student’s work in each meeting, but at some point your work will be discussed.  We will meet for about 30 minutes 4 times during the semester.
