“Fast draft” assignment

By Thursday, July 9th, I would like you to post a rough draft of your paper to Blackboard. In a face-to-face class I would have you write a “fast draft” similar to what the textbook describes in Chapter 2.3, Drafting, but it is difficult to simulate this exercise online.

Rather than doing this, I would like you to submit your work on your draft in whatever state it is in by this Thursday. This is a firm deadline because the only requirements are that you submit the document and that it represent the stage of the process your draft is in on that day. Your draft can be rough, unpolished, even ugly. Just submit some form of your draft by the due date.

To submit your draft, go to the Paper 1 folder in Blackboard.

How to check feedback in Blackboard

Below you will find a tutorial that will show you how to find feedback in Blackboard. This is how I will be giving you feedback on all of the assignments you turn in there, including the 4 major papers.
