Week Eight

Suggestions for Week Eight:

You’ll probably be still reading and working with sources as you start drafting your intro and outline, and that’s okay. Just try to expedite the process by always thinking: where does this fit into my argument? That way you’ll have a better sense of how to integrate it into your outline.

If possible, you’ll want to collect all your surveys and finish all your interviews by the end of the week so you can think about the results and how they can be used in relation to your argument.

Also, as always, don’t forget that you are writing AN ARGUMENT, so keep thinking about what claim you are making and how to best leverage your sources to support it.

M 2-23: Narrowing your topic; developing your claim; doing research

Bubbl.us Assignment: See email sent out on the afternoon of Saturday, 2-21 – more to follow shortly on the blog

Reading due:

Miscellaneous: Sign up for your mandatory RBA appointment with Christine.  Everyone must sign up for one appointment by Monday, Feb 23,  though the appointment itself can happen during Weeks 8, 9, or 10.

Reminder: You are required to sign up for and attend one appointment with a Hume writing consultant before the end of the quarter (see official assignment sheet). If you have already seen an Hume tutor (even if it was for a different class), write me and let me know so that you get credit!
