First, we’ll generate a rubric for the proposal. How would you like to be evaluated (think both content and style).
Class Generated Rubric
Things that are especially important for the proposal (for Dr. Epps-Robertson)l: defining writing and technology using readings and discussion from class,
- having a project that is viable given the time you have to complete it
- clearly naming the community you are writing about
- explaining why this matters to you–and why it should matter to us
- presenting out specific questions you can answer
- an engaging tone that makes your reader want to know more
You will workshop your proposal in class using three different methods.
Cycle 1: Find a peer partner. You both will read your paper aloud. Your partner should listen actively and highlight (using our rubric) 2-3 things working well & 2-3 areas that need clarification, more attention, or they may ask you questions to help further your thinking.
Take notes on what they offer
Cycle 2: Find a new partner and exchange papers. You should both read and offer written feedback using our rubric. Mark at least 2-3 places where things are working well & 2-3 areas that need additional attention/follow-up.
Cycle 3: I will put your documents up around the room. I’d like you to read and leave a comment & question on the ones you did not read or listen to.
Your comment must be more than “Good!”or “Nice!” Please use the rubric as a guide for providing constructive remarks.
When reviews are complete, please look at each of your three workshop drafts and in an email to me (firstname.lastname@example.org) share the following:
- Your plan for revision given the feedback you’ve received.
- Something you’d like to consider or do based on having read the work of others.
Please keep all drafts from the workshop. You will submit them when you turn in your final project.
