OVERVIEW: As I mentioned in my intro to our course, I intend this course to help professionalize you and I don't mean that in a soft way. I would like to insure that you leave this class with things you can put on your resume. To that end, I would like for your to weigh in on some possible in-class experiences that would lead to a line on a resume or a vita. We can do one or more of these as a class. I can also put you in small groups based on interest.
Create and propose a social media plans for an area Black-owned business
Contribute to/manage the social media for the BSU English Department
Write a considerable number of articles for The Comment (BSUs student newspaper).
Create and manage a blog on a topic of your design
Develop and host a reading of student work (your own and/or others)
Additionally, students should plan on presenting at the STARS all-campus conference at the end of the semester, which is something you can put on your resume.
WHAT TO POST
Please rank, in order, which three of these possible experiences you would like to be a part of.
Welcome to 489 and to our first Discussion Board. You opted to be a part of the Writing Concentration for a reason. Maybe you've got a clear plan; maybe not so much. But here you are. In this space, tell me (and each other) about the writer you are, the writer you want to be, and what you hope to have accomplished by the end of this class. Be aware that at least some of your colleagues will read what you post.
HOW TO POST
Click on the "comment" button located at either the top right or bottom left of this post. Fill in the form as required and post your 100-200 words in the dialogue box. You might want to compose in another program so nothing gets lost. Once you've finished, click submit.
NOTE: Occasionally, weebly asks you to identify a series of images in order to submit your post. Sometimes a glitch makes it impossible to see the "submit" button. If this happens, let me know. You can email me your post and I will post it on your behalf. When this happens, I contact weebly and they typically fix the problem.
