As promised, here is a space for folks to ask questions about the course policies that we went over in class on the first night. Again, follow the instructions for "leave a reply" below, and I will respond to your posted question with an answer in the comments. You aren't obligated to ask me a question, but if you have them, feel free. I'll either be able to answer you immediately or I will find the answer and come to class on the 20th with it.
See you next week.
Consider the in-class activity that started our class together. Consider the wide array of documents that we looked at; consider the brief discussion we had about various qualities of professional writing.
Consider, as well, the reading from Markel that you needed to read for Wednesday's online class (you can read that material here).
PART I. Once you've thought about it, please post a response to this question: Based on the reading and our class discussion from class, what do you think are the important things to know about writing in professional settings? AND How is it like/not like the writing you do in school? What might transfer from school writing to professional writing? What probably won't? FINALLY, what do you imagine will be hard to learn, this semester, about writing in the professions?
In order to post, you simply need to follow the instructions to " leave a reply" . Please post between 200 and 500 words.
PART II. Please read your colleagues posts. Select one or two to reply to. Please reply with a post of 100 to 250 words. To respond to a post, simply hit the "comments" button that appears both below the post and in the upper right corner of the page the post appears on and follow the instructions as prompted.
We'll use this information to shape the rest of our semester together, testing what we learn as we go against what we thought we knew.
PLEASE POST PART I NO LATER THAN 5:00 ON SATURDAY, 15 SEPTEMBER 2017.
PLEASE POST PART II NO LATER THAN 5:00 ON TUESDAY, 19 SEPTEMBER 2017.
