1. The end is near!• Blakeslee & Fleischer• Peer review wrap-up• A word about the ﬁnal and calendar• Evaluations
2. 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
3. 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
4. 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!)
