homework this week due

I will accept late homework up to a week after the due date; if you have extenuating circumstances, let's talk.

Attention all procrastinators and time-management-challenged students! Here are some resources for you!

Don't miss class! My History 2 classes are in SS 210, MW at 12:50 and TTh at 2:30. So you can come to the OTHER class if you miss yours, and if not see me ASAP when you return to school to go over what you missed and clarify homework expectations. We do a lot every day you're gone, so get the notes from a new or used friend?

Please note that I put next week's HW on this page on Weds. so if you are in the TTh class, or running late, you may need to look at last week's--note DATES!

Due Nov. 19-20

This week, your rough draft with at least ten quotes is due: --Nov. 19-20 in class. Put late papers UNDER MY OFFICE DOOR (nowhere else!)and remember that late material will affect your final grade, day by day. This rough draft should be primarily your research on your themes, and it should be written up with MLA style, using quotes/paraphrases and citations, with a correct Works Cited list. An acceptable rough draft is 700 words long, has some cited material, includes a works cited list, and gives some sense of research on your two themes and organization of the material. If you have something less than this, turn it in anyway and keep working. Keep your own copy of your rough draft--never give me the only copy. I will not read your rough draft to suggest improvements unless you visit me to go over it together, nor will I return it. It will help me assess your process when I have your final paper.

In view of my absence, I am hoping to collect all your preliminary interview materials, as well as sources and quotes, and then this week your rough drafts, and have them organized so I can respond to your emails if you want some feedback. I am hoping to be back before Thanksgiving to do some Rough Draft clinics, so watch your email and this space for when and where.
