  • Major Paper 1 Rewrite Due by Noon on Tuesday, May 12. Email paper with subject line "ENG 101: Rewrite" and rename the file following this convention: LastName_FirstName_ENG101_P1REV.docx
  • If you have an incorrect grade in gradebook, email me by Friday, May 8th. If a grade is listed as a hyphen, it means I haven't graded it yet. Do not contact me about that.
  • Final Grades are due Wednesday, May 13, at 11:59 PM. If I send them earlier, I will post an announcement to Blackboard that is emailed to your Montco account. Don't email me to ask if I am done yet.
  • Check all of your email accounts every day until May 14th. If I have an urgent grading issue, that's how I will contact you. Failure to answer my email will almost certainly lead to a lower grade, so don't ignore it or forget to check.
  • There is an extra credit opportunity: Go see the 30-minute documentary Adelante in ATC 101 on Tuesday, May 5, 2015 at 12:15. The film is about the integration of Latino Catholics into the predominantly Irish congregation of St. Patrick's Church in Norristown. To get the extra credit, go to the film, make eye contact with me and wait for me to wave, watch the film, and then post a paragraph in the extra credit section outlining what issues surprised you. 5 points possible.


You will need to write two separate notes (on two separate pieces of paper). Do not put them in your final essay envelope. Please write them as a note rather than a list. Each note should be at least half a page long. Put your name on each of them.

NOTE #1: The Research Paper

  • Why did you pick your topic?
  • What are you most proud of with the final product besides completing it?
  • What were the biggest challenges you faced with this project? What would you do differently if you could start over? Why?
  • What are your greatest strengths as a writer?
  • What weaknesses do you have that still need some work? How will you compensate for them?
  • What helps you the most in terms of the writing process? In other words, what steps can you take in future writing assignments to produce better paper?

NOTE #2: The Course

  • Did the course feel like a college class?
  • What were the most effective elements of the course?
  • What were the weaknesses of the course?
  • What did you think of the education theme?
  • What would you change about the course if you could change it? What would you absolutely insist stay the same?
