Goodbye to English 210

All the grades (except class participation) have now been posted to Angel, and you should have received your paper either in the Dropbox or via email. Final grades have been submitted to the registrar.


Because of FERPA regulations, no grades can be transmitted or discussed via email, so if you have a question, you'll need to make an appointment when spring semester begins on January 8


Have a great winter break!

Checking your grades in Angel

Here's a video to help you if you are not sure how to check your actual grades in Angel:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YlYSGus5EBc

You have to run a report to see the actual grades; the percentage chart that sometimes appears is not always accurate.

The percentage chart for grades is at the bottom of the syllabus: 
Exams (2 exams, 15% each) 30 percent
Short papers (2 at 15% each) 30 percent
Longer Paper or Project (20%) plus presentation (5%) 25 percent
Quizzes, class participation, group presentations, and in-class writings 15 percent

Web genres and final presentations

Please be sure that your web genres page is linked from the main page and that it has your comments on it. The wiki is here: http://english210.pbworks.com.

The final presentations schedule is here: http://public.wsu.edu/~campbelld/engl210/presentation.htm. Please check the date so that you know when your presentation is scheduled.

If you are planning to use PowerPoint (you don't have to), you can upload it to a site such as http://www.slideshare.net/ or bring your own computer. If you want to send it to me 24 hours in advance by email, I can load it onto my computer.

Time your presentation carefully: no more than 5 minutes.

Also, if you haven't yet signed up, please email me as soon as possible for one of the available slots. You must sign up for a slot in order to be able to present your final project, and the presentation is 5% of that project grade.

Except for the first day (11/29), you will NOT be able to just come to class and present on one of the days, since the presentations are scheduled so tightly. You must sign up for a time. If you don't sign up, you can't present and will receive a 0 for that part of your grade.

Optional Paper 3 is due by 9 p.m. this evening in Angel.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Change to office hours for 11/15 and 11/17

My office hours tomorrow (11/15) will be from 1-2 rather than 12:30 to 2 because of a meeting; on Thursday, they will be from 1:30-2:30 for the same reason. However, I'll be on campus most of the day on Wednesday if you would like to meet with me then.
