Week 15: How can we take our webtexts from good to great?

I’ve been saying “time flies when you’re having fun” all semester long, and now we’re almost out of time. Congratulations — you’ve almost completed Writing and Digital Media! I’ve really enjoyed teaching this class, and I’ve been so impressed with the projects you’ve created and (more importantly) with your collegiality and collaboration this semester. I can’t wait to see how your Scholarly Webtexts turn out. You’ve set a high bar for yourselves, but I’m confident you’ll clear it with room to spare.

Here’s how we’ll wrap up the semester:

  • On Tuesday, we will conduct our last peer critique session of the semester. You should come to class ready to share a full, finished draft of your project with your classmates. The further along your project is on Tuesday, the better the feedback you’ll receive and the better your revised project will turn out, so please treat Tuesday as a “hard” deadline for Unit #4.
  • We will not meet as a class during Finals Week, so please remember to submit your final project no later than Monday, December 14, at 1:05 p.m. (our university-appointed time for the final exam). Please review the instructions for submitting your memo of transmittal and make sure that your project is live and viewable on the web before the deadline.

As always, if you have any questions about these items, please stop by during my office hours (T 2–5, W 9–12). If you need to meet outside of my official office hours, just drop me a line — I’ll do my best to make time to meet with you. Good luck wrapping up your project and concluding the semester in all of your other classes!
