Homework for next next week
● Try to finish a first version of the draft in one week and a half: by Sunday
the 16th of November
○ the main sections should have some content (excluding the
conclusion, which can be done at the end)
○ there will be a second round of peer-review before the last tutorial,
on the 19th of November, when we will wrap things up
If you think that peer-review is useful, feel free to continue exchanging
papers and reviews.
My feedback on your almost-final draft
I will let you know next week about the Turnitin system, how to access and
submit your review paper there.
When do you want my feedback?
● Submit by 28 November → feedback 7 December
● Submit by 5 December → feedback 14 December
● Submit by 12 December → feedback 21 December
● Submit by 19 December → feedback 9 January
* think about it, I will ask you again next week
In a small group (2/3 people), answer the following questions:
● In which stage is your review? What things have you done?
● What are the next things to do to finish your review?
● How much time do you think it will take, and when do you plan to do them?
