Revising Your Project

Spend class time today working on Project 3, by completing these activities:

  1. Review the feedback from your peer reader(s) (Canvas Documentation), and note the things you still need to work on.
  2. Begin by working through the Project 3 Web Essay Checklist. Use the checklist to determine what you have done and what you still need to do.
  3. If you need a second opinion, ask the classmate who is sitting beside you.
  4. Work on whatever you still need to do based on peer review, the checklist, and (if relevant) what the person sitting beside you suggests.
  5. Complete the "What I Need" quiz in Canvas to help me be sure I cover whatever you need next week.


For today, please do the following:

  • If you didn’t complete your "What I Need" quiz in Canvas, please use the grace period to finish by 5:30 PM Sunday (10/25).

For Monday’s session (10/26), do the following before class:

  • Be ready to turn in your project in class (unless you are taking advantage of the grace period).
  • Monday will be the last day we will discuss the web essay in class.
