Here is the arrangement and the schedule of dates for the Mid-Term Essay, fifteen hundred words and revisions. The assignment is worth twenty percent of the Course grade, of which five percent is for the draught and fifteen percent for the revision.
Five-week writing circuit:
- Course week five, Thursday February 8th: Choice of topics posted on the blog
- Course week seven, Thursday February 22nd: first version of the essay due in lecture.
- Course week nine, Thursday March 8th: essay returned with comments & grade.
- Course week ten , Thursday March 15th: final revision due in lecture.
There is, then, a good three course weeks to analyse the completed paper and the writing process and discuss with the TA, if required.
