December 1 Class December 1 Class Presentation Transcript

  • The end is near!• Blakeslee & Fleischer• Peer review wrap-up• A word about the final and calendar• Evaluations
  • Blakeslee & Fleischer• “Shifting from writing to explore to writing to present:” Good points, but the border between the two is leaky• A lot of the writing advice here are things we’ve covered already...• “Selecting Your Audience,” “Determining Your Purpose,” and “Considering and Selecting a Genre” are all intertwined, IMO
  • Blakeslee & Fleischer• I usually ask students to find an example of their genre or info about journals where they’d ideally publish their project• “Choosing the right genre..depends...” And remember, your MA project ≠your “last chance” at research!• Positioning yourself as an author is subtle and a little more than “voice”• Cool story about “student who researched Nobel prize speeches
  • Blakeslee & Fleischer• You want to persuade your audience with an argument/point (or maybe that’s obvious)• Story telling is useful for qualitative research, but potentially tricky ethically• Letting it sit is indeed ideal• (And don’t forget to be ethical researchers!)
  • Peer Review Wrap Up!
  • The Final and Calendar• The Final: • Take-home • Distributed 12/8, due 12/15 (electronically) • 20% of the grade • (Probably) two questions, one of which will involve some more reading • (Probably) a total of 2,000 words (or less) • “Opportunity for success”
  • The Final and Calendar• The Calendar: • Your Project Portfolio Due by class time on 12/8 (And it needs to be the Google Doc for peer review, too). • Third progress report, due by class time on 12/8 • Posters and presentations in class, 12/8 • Introduce final, 12/8 • Final due (and the “end of time”), 12/15
