  2. 2. What happens next? • Rest of semester will be mostly centered on writing conferences; • Individual students will meet with me every class day (about 20 minutes) to go over their blogs (3 students per day). Your scheduled day is the only day you can meet with me for feedback specifically about your blogs; • While I am consulting on individual blogs, the rest of the class can be working on their final papers.
  3. 3. How will you be evaluated in this course? • “Portfolio” assessment • e-Portfolio • Checklist of items comprising 50% of total grade • Midterm exam (15%) • Final essay (30%) • Participation (5%) – includes feedback (and commenting on others’ blogs)
