Week 10 – Monday

Where Do We Go From Here?

Your Essays

Same process as with essay 2:

  • Reminder:
    Finals week you will pick one of the three essays for grading, and I’ll pick one of the other two for grading. I’ll be providing feedback this weekend on the two that you have submitted. If I have it link on either “Essay1″ or “Essay2″, you’ll get full points if it is not selected for grading! You may also edit the essay after it is posted
  • Link to your essays
  • Pick the two that follow your name in this list. The last two people move to the top (1, 2).
