I will accept late homework up to a week after the due date; if you have extenuating circumstances, let's talk. Please note DATES--next week's HW may go up any time between Weds. and Thursday, so make sure you are looking at the proper week!

Attention all sleep-deprived students--here are some resources for you, and see extra credit below left also

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

homework due week of Nov. 28

1. Come to Rough Draft Clinic. Everyone. Yes. You.

2. Finish the video series on oral history and outline them to turn in

3. Finish up the last chapters in your text.

4. Start working on your final exam study. Here's the study sheet.

Rough draft clinics to come:

Monday Dec. 5, 11:15-noon and 2-3:30


Nov. 21

1. Your rough draft can use one or more visits to RDC. See dates and times below. This week you are working on telling the stories of your themes, which may be most of your rough draft as you don't yet have the interviewing piece. We will work on interviewing in class on Weds. Nov. 23, so try not to miss.

Rough draft clinics:

Tuesday Nov. 29 10:15-11, from12:50-1:30 IF you email ahead before 11 a.m. that you will come!

Weds. Nov. 30 from 1:30-2:30

2. You may wish to watch and outline #4 in the series Oral History Without Fears, which will prepare you further for doing your actual interviews. This outline and #5 will actually be due Dec. 1.


Don't miss class! If it is unavoidable, please plan ASAP to see me on an office hour--not just as class is starting, please!--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?
