Ok, folks — here’s the plan for the next two weeks:
Tomorrow, April 19th, MEET IN THE CLASSROOM at 8:30 a.m., at which point I’ll take you to the computer lab (probably 1302 — I asked to have our class there) to continue working on your web portfolio.
Then after a break, we’ll come to the Portfolio Center, where writing and editing professionals Keidra Chaney and Marina Lewis will give you feedback on the writing that you sent in. See the Portfolio Center blog for more details.
On April 26th, we’ll continue working in a computer lab (hopefully 1302 again) and finish up your web portfolios. By May 3rd, all the following should be complete:
- Your final portfolio should be completed and contain at least five samples of writing (whether published and/or unpublished) – all of which have been edited and polished based on the variety of feedback you’ve received over the last semester
- You should have excerpts written for each of your portfolio writing pieces (where and whether they are used in your portfolio is beside the point — you should have them handy, if needed)
- An edited and finalized resume, artists statement (and/or combination of statement and bio)
- Business cards (which most of you already have); it’s not required that they be printed by end of semester, but do try to get them printed as soon as you can
Your final grades will be mostly based on the final product (the web portfolio), but I will also take into consideration your participation on the blog (and your collaboration with your colleagues), interviews conducted, resources shared, etc.
And then . . . that’s all folks!
