This page gives you:

(1) a quick look at all 17 weeks and their calendar dates, and

(2) then a detailed listing, week by week, of what is due and what we will do in class.

This weekly assignment list is long,  but it is very detailed and, once you get to know it, fairly simply to read.  Come back to this page each week to find out what is due both in the current and the following week.  Assignments are always due for the week given.  They are due on the 2nd class day of that week.  So, for example, in "Week 7" below, the assignments listed there are actually due  - and should be turned in - on the 2nd class day of Week 7.

WHAT IS THE WEEKLY SCHEDULE
OF ASSIGNMENTS, WEEK BY WEEK?

Note: The dates and weeks above are for this course only

.  Other teachers may use different date-and-week systems.

PLEASE PRINT THIS ENTIRE WEB PAGE AND BRING IT TO OUR CLASSROOM MEETINGS.  

 Week 1: Starting  (See "Assignment Dates," above, for dates.)

   
These ENG 1114 ASSIGNMENTS are due by Day 2 of Class  (W. for M/W, Th. for T/Th., F. for W/Fr., 2nd night for a night class)

Wk. 1a. Write about Eng 1114 Book Readings (Five Chimneys, Girls and Sex, girl soldier, Half the Sky, Lucky, Nickel and Dimed, A Problem from Hell, or Slave): 

For this first week, get your book purchased/borrowed, and start reading it for the Wk. 2 reading and writing assignment. The Wk. 2 reading and writing assignment is due in the 2nd week of class.)
Do NOT buy all the books. Just buy one or two, as follows:

1. Choose just one of the eight books listed on this website's Textbooks and Readings page. Read the descriptions of each of the eight books, and even look at the online samples of their beginnings, if you like, to carefully choose a book you will be able to like and research for a number of weeks.

2. If you choose a short book (such as girl soldier or  Lucky), then you'll have to choose a second book now or later to read in the middle of the semester. This second book can be one that you choose from a list of several dozen books in this website's Booklist for 2nd Required Readings. Or it can be a book from the original list of six books (at Textbooks and Readings).

3. If you choose a long book (such as Girls and Sex, Half the Sky, or A Problem from Hell) for your first several weeks, then when we reach the middle of the semester, you can either keep reading the same book, or you may choose a different book.

4. If you do choose a different book, you may choose it either from Booklist for 2nd Required Readings or from the original list of six books at Textbooks and Readings page.

Wk. 1b. Do Miscellaneous 1114 Assignments (by class day #2): There are lots of these this week:

  • First, write a Summary of this Eng 1114 Web site, 300+ w. total: on a separate sheet of paper, write about 40+ words for each link in the light-yellow bar at the top of every page.  There are eight links ("Home Page," "Wkly. Asgnmnts.," etc.).  Give each an underlined Subtitle using the name of the link.  Add the proper info about the assignment in the upper-right corner: please see the gold box below, "How To Present the Weekly Papers."

  • Locate your 1114 grammar handbook. You may buy Rules for Writers, or you may decide to use www.OnlineGrammar.org)--see Textbooks and Resources Please note that there will be no assignments from any printed grammar handbook--only from www.OnlineGrammar.org.

  • Write Journal #1: a "Hello Richard" letter for Eng 1114, 300+ w. (due W./Th., but you may have until the beginning of the first class in Week 2)I would enjoy hearing 300+ words saying hi to me, telling me about your past experiences, good and bad, with writing, how they have affected you, how you feel about this class, what you would like to learn, who and what you are in general, how you feel about school, etc.  (As with all of your writings in this class, I never share them with other students or teachers without your permission.)  Add the proper info about the assignment in the upper-right corner: please see the colored box below, "How To Present the Weekly Papers."  To see examples of related student journals, click here: Sample Student Journals.  

Also:

  • Complete and turn in your Eng 1114 "Information and Photo" sheet.  (If you missed getting one, ask me for it.)  Please return the whole sheet to me physically with your photo on it.  Wait until you have the photo--something I can keep, even if you have to copy it.  You can copy and enlarge a driver's I.D. photo if you have nothing else.

  • Print out 2 (TWO) copies of the "Eng. 1114 Course Packet."  One is for bringing to class each time, and one is for home.  Turn one of them in to me for credit for printing it out.  Keep one in your materials you bring to class.  Keep one at home.  You need to print two copies of the "Packet" because you'll need two copies of many of the sheets in it to attach to your assignments that you turn in.

Wk. 1c. Write Eng 1114 Study Questions on Comp Textbook, www.WritingforCollege.org, 150+ w. total in 6+ different bullet points:

Please note: This is not a textbook you buy.  Rather, you read it free online: simply go to www.WritingforCollege.org online (as shown in the first week of class). 
Do this assignment on chapter 24. Do six separate bullet points or paragraphs separated by a full line space between each. Please write 150+ w. with six or more bullet points or paragraphs about six or more points or parts of chapter 24. How should you do the study points? You may: (a) summarize six parts, (b) respond with what you think about six different parts, and/or (c) respond with what six different parts make you feel or remember.

For more details on this assignment: To do the required study questions and see an example, look in the top of the left-hand column of www.WritingforCollege.org for "Study Questions."  Click on it.  Then look at the four types of study questions: you may choose which type you wish to do.  Please note in the upper-right corner of your study questions which set you are doing: ("6 Responses," 6 Summaries," "6 Questions about Chapter," or "6 Questions about Samples")!  You must write 150+ words.  To read how to present all "Journals" and "Study Questions," please see below, "How To Present the Weekly Papers." 

1d. Write Eng 1114 Drafts of Papers: 

You can wait until Week 2 to turn in your first Draft 1, which will be "Paper A."  Instructions for working on it are in your "Eng. 1114 Course Packet"--see "Draft 1, Paper A Cover Sheet."  Before doing this Draft 1-A, you should read the chapter about it that is assigned in Week 2. This chapter is in the free online textbook WritingforCollege.org (or WforC.org).      

1e. Eng 1114 Class-time Activities: Intros; writing an analysis paper

Intro to class; writing an analysis paper

(Note: If I have two sections of this course, they are interchangeable--if you want to make up a class by coming to the same one in the other section, feel free to do so: simply show up, and when I take attendance, remind me to give you your own section's attendance sheet.  If you want to change permanently, I can do that for a couple of people, but ask me first!)

Wk. 1, first day (night class: first half of class): I will show you the different parts of the course materials on the Web and how to do the "Study Questions" assignment.

Wk. 1, second day (night class: last half of class): I will go over in more detail  how to use the Course Packet "Cover Sheets" and how to write the Draft 1 papers.  Also, you can get triple extra credit for presenting something at SSD in Week 5: talk with me after class.

1f. ADDITIONAL WEEK 1 INFORMATION:  

HOW TO PRESENT THE WEEKLY PAPERS

   
For each weekly paper, you should either type or handwrite using dark ink.  On any one paper, if you write more than one page, please turn the sheet over and continue on the second page.  (However, write each type of paper on an entirely new sheet: e.g., "Study Questions" should be on one sheet, and a "Journal" should be on another, separate sheet.)   

Also, whenever you turn these types of papers in, please write, in the upper-right corner of the first page, the following info so I can tell the difference between the assignments, the weeks, and your class and any other section or class I might have (and also so, if your paper is lost on campus, it will come back to me).  This may not sound like it's very important, but it makes a big difference for me.  It helps me a lot.  I look at 100-300 such papers per week.  I do appreciate your help with this:

for Jewell, Eng 1114-01, 1 p.m.

Week 3
Study Questions [or Summary or Journal #3]
Set B: 6 Points

Do I read every last word of every sheet of your writings about your readings?  Your writings about your readings are like biology lab practices or sports practice: they are meant for you to practice writing on your own, to think more thoroughly about what you have read, and/or to better remember what you have read by writing about it.  Do I read every last word?  There isn't time for me to, given how many weekly papers I assign to all my students.  But that's okay; they're mainly for your practice anyway.  I do at least look at each paper to see if you've met the requirements and have done the reading.  And sometimes something grabs me and I read part or all of these weekly papers.  If you ever do want me to notice something in particular and comment on it, or if you want to ask a question, why don't you write me a note at the very top of the first page and circle it or mark it darkly so I'll definitely see it.  Your note might be something like "What do you think of my answer to number 2?" or "I have a question: how do I find out how to contact you?"  Then I can answer your question or check out something in your paper more carefully.

Week 2: Questions, Writing Process, Writing a Dialogic Paper
(See "Assignment Dates," above, for dates.)

These ENG 1114 ASSIGNMENTS due by last day of class in the week (W. for M/W, Th. for T/Th., or F. for M/W/F or W/F; same night, beginning of class, for a night class.  For exceptions, go to "HOMEWORK/Late Papers."):

2a. Write about Eng 1114 Book Reading: 

Look up the reading assignment for the book you have chosen by going to Textbooks and Readings. The reading assignment is at the end of the description for each of the six books. Then write a Draft 1-A about the reading (see below).

2b. Do Miscellaneous Eng 1114 Assignments: 

Get the "Info & Photo" sheet to me, if you haven't already.  Please return the whole sheet to me physically with your photo on it (unless you know how to scan the photo sheet w/a photo and email it that way).  Give me a photo I can keep, even if you have to copy it.  You can enlarge and copy a driver's I.D. photo if you have nothing else.  It will save me time if you tape or staple your pic--all 4 corners--to the "Info & Photo" sheet, so I don't have to do it myself.  I need to have each photo fully taped/stapled when I stack the whole class's sheets together so the photos don't get stuck or ripped off.

Also, fill out your email address on the sheet I pass around in class, if you haven't already done so (just ask me for it).

2c. Write Eng 1114 Study Questions on Comp Textbook, 150+ w.: Chapter 27 in www.WritingforCollege.org (shortcut: www.WforC.org).  

Because Chapter 27 has samples papers, you must confine yourself, in the Study Questions, to using ONLY Study Questions type "C." or type "D."  This means that you must write at least 6 points about the chapter--either summarizing different parts of the chapter, discussing them, or responding to them--and you must ALSO MAKE AT LEAST ONE POINT ABOUT ONE OR MORE OF THE SAMPLE PAPERS IN SUCH A WAY THAT I CAN TELL YOU READ THE SAMPLE PAPERS.  For example, your point could be a comparison-contrast of the sample papers, or possibly several words of summary of each one.  Alternatively, you can write your entire Study Notes by making 6 points about all of the samples papers in the chapter. 

Here are some additional points about reading chapters like this one, in which there are several web pages for the chapter, along with sample papers.  They are all very practical.

  • Each chapter like this is NOT just one web page: it is FIVE web pages.  To get to the five pages, click on them in the RIGHT COLUMN:
    "Introduction"
    "Basics"
    "Advanced"
    "Samples"
    "Activities"
    ---  

  • "Activities":
    You don't need to read it.  Skip it.

  • "Samples": 
    This is very, very important.  Read it first or last (or both), but be sure to read it: you will be responsible for showing that you read, at a bare minimum, one of the samples.

  • "Introduction":
    Skim this, at the least.

  • "Basics":
    Look at it carefully if you don't know this type of paper well.  Especially read the parts about "Why" and "Organizing."  In "Organizing," pay special attention to the "visual map," the "keys for writing this type of paper," and the "dangers to avoid."

  • "Advanced":
    You may, if you wish, skip it.  However, if you already know this type of paper, you could skim the "Basics" and, instead, spend more time reading "Advanced."
    ---  

  • Remember as you read the chapter that you will be responsible for doing Study Notes/Study Questions to prove you read parts of it.  Your two choices for Study Notes on chapters like this are type "C" or type "D" from the Study Questions:
    "C": Do 5+ points on the "Introduction" and the "Basics" and/or "Advanced," and at least one more point on one of the samples
     or
    "D": Write 6+ points on all the sample papers.

Please let me remind you, further, of two things about "Study Questions" and "Journals."  (a) First, if one of them is longer than one page, simply turn the sheet over and do the rest on the back of that same sheet (if you are handwriting it).  (b) Second, please remember to turn each one in with the proper identifying information on each one in the upper-right corner (Why?  See "Additional Week 1 Information," above), as follows:

Name (First & Last)
Course and Section or Time

Week Number

Type of Assignment

Instructor Name

Here's an example:

Alison Kraus

Eng 1108-01, 1 p.m.

Week 3

2d. Write Drafts of Papers:  

Draft 1 of Paper A, an Analysis, is due this week.  See the "Course Packet" and look for the "cover sheet" for Draft 1, Paper A.  That sheet will have clear, detailed directions.  If you're in class all the time, you'll hear me talk about how to do this paper, too.  

Note: Are you running late with your Draft 1?  You may turn it in as 300+ handwritten words (with its Draft 1 Cover Sheet on top of it).  It will be considered on time.  I will then simply ask you to revise it (by typing and adding more words) and turn it in again.   

2e. Read Transition to College Writing, Chapter 1, and write 150+ w. of Comments.

(Comments can be summaries, responses, thoughts, memories, or anything else that shows me, step by step, that you read the entire chapter.)

Note2: Are you running late with your Draft 1?  You may turn it in as 300+ handwritten words (with its Draft 1 Cover Sheet on top of it).  It will be considered on time.  I will then simply ask you to revise it (by typing and adding more words) and turn it in again.   

(ii) Draft 2 of Paper A, B, or C: Start it as soon as you can.  This first Draft 2 is due Week 7.  To do it, simply choose just one of your Drafts 1-A, 1-B, or 1-C.  Start it very soon, especially if you are going to use your Draft 1-A or 1-B.  Then revise it according to the requirements on the "Draft 2 Cover Sheet."  The reason you should start it as soon as possible is that you must develop several bibliography sources for it, so start right away!  

(iii) Draft 2 of Paper C, D, or E: Also, be aware that you will have another Draft 2 due in Week 9.  For it you will choose just one of your Drafts 1-C, 1-D, or 1-E.  (You cannot choose Draft 1-C twice for your two Draft 2 papers.)

(i) Mon./Tues. class: What is due this week.  Questions?  Reminder of Library trip.  Discussion of book.  (ii) What is due next week.  Questions?  How to Write an Evaluation Paper.  

(ii) Tuesday class: No regular class.  Normal class is cancelled on Tuesday. Instead, you are required to attend Student Success Day ("SSD") in person or online to get your attendance credit.  You may do this in person on SSD (start at Heritage Hall when you arrive) or online 24/7 (at www.inverhills.edu/SSD).   (Fill out a form I will give you, and write 150+ w. on the back of it about at least one 1-hr. SSD session you attended.  You may get as much extra credit as you want by attending sessions, as long as you write about each one, and as long as no other teacher is giving you credit for the sessions you attend for this class.)   If you would like to make a presentation at this event, alone or with others for this class (not for another course or a club), I will be glad to give you triple extra credit for the time you spend preparing and giving it, and help you prepare it.  Ask me about it. 

(iii) Thursday class: LIBRARY! Go directly to the Library's glass-walls computer lab, just inside the Library. (Do not go to our regular classroom.)

5e. NOTE: All late Wk. 1-5 papers/make up are absolutely due Wk. 7! The deadline for acceptance of any late homework and make up is Week 7.  None will be accepted later (except as extra credit timed by the minutes/hours).

11d. NOTE: All late Wk. 6-10 papers/make up are absolutely due Wk. 12! The deadline for acceptance of any late homework and make up is Week 12.  None will be accepted later (except as extra credit timed by the minutes/hours).

11e. Do your Draft 4 by presenting at the Annual Student-Research Conference! Sign up by this Wed., March 29, for presenting your Draft 4 at the Annual Student Research Conference on April 19-20. Then you will not have to present your Draft 4 in written form. Everyone will have to attend the conference anyway; if you read your paper at the conference, you also can get credit for it as a Draft 4 (if your Draft 3 is already done by that time). See the "Draft 4 Cover Sheets" in your "Course Packet" for directions on how to prepare your presentation. (There may be a 5-7 day extension for signing up to present at the conference.)

Week 12: Grammar, Punctuation, and/or Organizing;

Computer Lab (See "Assignment Dates," above, for dates.)

These ENG 1114 ASSIGNMENTS due by Day 2 of Class  (W. for M/W, Th. for T/Th., F. for W/Fr., same night for a night class.  For exceptions, go to "HOMEWORK/Late Papers."):

12a. All late Wk. 6-10 papers/make up are absolutely due this week! The deadline for acceptance of any late 6-10 homework and make up is Week 12.  None will be accepted later (except as extra credit timed by the minutes/hours).      

12b. Miscellaneous: There is a final deadline for extra credit and make ups coming soon! All make ups and extra credit for weeks 1-14 are due Week 15 (except tutoring, which is due Week 16).  Also please note: appointments for tutoring in the Writing Center can be very difficult to get in the last 2-3 weeks of the term.

12b2. See Homework Options Wks. 9-12: Make your own reading/writing choice for this assignment--whatever you believe will help you grow the most as a writer.  Only 50+ words is needed--in any form you want.

12c. Write Drafts of Papers (Revise and return them to me right away!):  

(i) Draft 1 and 2 Papers: If you're not done revising them, get them to me as soon as possible.  A Draft 2 that has been marked for revision can still be turned in again.  Get them revised immediately!

(ii) Draft 3's of your Draft 2's: If you want a "B" grade in this course, you must also successfully complete two Draft 3 papers.  Follow the "Draft 3 Cover Sheet" directions.  The first one--a revision and expansion of your first Draft 2, was due two weeks ago--Week 10; the second one, an expansion of your second Draft 2, was due last week--Week 11.  NOTE: Week 13 is the final deadline for  all “new” D-3's.  (A "new" Draft 3 is one being turned in for the first time after its D-3 has been X'ed.)  According to the schedule, the last possible week in which any new Draft 3 can be turned in is Week 13.  (A Draft 3 that has been marked for revision can still be turned in again after this deadline.)

(iii) Draft 4's of your Draft 3's: If you want an "A" grade in this course, you must also successfully complete at least one Draft 4 paper: revise and edit a Draft 3.  NOTE: Week 14 is the final deadline for  all “new” D-4's.  (A "new" Draft 4 is one being turned in for the first time after its D-3 has been X'ed.)  The first Draft 4 is technically due this week--Week 12.  The second is due next week.  The absolute deadline for Draft 4's is Week 14 because there simply isn't time for someone to revise a Draft 4 using required tutoring if he or she hasn't turned it in by the end of this week.  

12d. Class-Time Activities:  (i) What is due this week. Questions?  Topical discussions on what to watch out for in Drafts 2-3.  (ii) No classes at IHCC on Wednesday, which is a holiday in Fall 2009.

12e. Deadline for taking a "W" passing is drawing near: If you are failing this class and would prefer to take a "W" passing (instead of a "WF"--withdraw failing, or an "F"), check the deadline for doing so.  It is coming soon.

11e. Do your Draft 4 by presenting at the Annual Student-Research Conference! There may be an extension until this week to sign up  for presenting your Draft 4 at the Annual Student Research Conference on April 19-20. Then you will not have to present your Draft 4 in written form. Everyone will have to attend the conference anyway; if you read your paper at the conference, you also can get credit for it as a Draft 4 (if your Draft 3 is already done by that time). See the "Draft 4 Cover Sheets" in your "Course Packet" for directions on how to prepare your presentation.

14b. Write Drafts of Papers (Revise and return them to me right away!): 

(i) Draft 1 and 2 Papers: If you're not done revising them, get them to me as soon as possible.  Draft 2's and 3's that have been marked for revision can still be turned in again after this deadline, but no later than Week 16.  (If your still starting a new D-2 just to qualify for a "C" or "D" in the course, bring your D-2 cover sheet to me and ask for written permission to turn in the D-2 late.)

(ii) Draft 3's of your Draft 2's: If you want a "B" grade in this course, you must also successfully complete two Draft 3 papers.  Follow the "Draft 3 Cover Sheet" directions.  The first one was due in Week 10; the second one was due in Week 11.  NOTE: Week 13 was the final deadline for  all “new” D-3's.  (A "new" Draft 3 is one being turned in for the first time after its D-3 has been X'ed.)  The last possible week in which any first-time Draft 3 can be turned in was last week--Week 13.  (A Draft 3 that has been marked for revision can still be turned in again after this deadline.)

14c. Class-Time Activities:  (i) NOTE: In spring, there is a replacement activity for part of regular class. Instead of one regular class, attend the IHCC Annual Student-Faculty Research Conference. This is the conference at which you have the option to present your D-4 paper for 10-12 min. in order to receive an A for this course (instead of writing a final, well-edited Draft 4). 

(ii) Tuesday: What is due this week & next. Questions?  Topical discussions on what to watch out for in Drafts 2-3. 
(iii) Thursday: For Thursday class, instead of coming to regular class, go to the IHCC Annual Student-Research Conference any day in person on Wed. or Thurs.  (To get credit, fill out a form I will give you, and write 150+ w. on the back of it about at least one 1-hr. SS Day session you attended.  You may get as much extra credit as you want by attending sessions, as long as you write about each one, and as long as no other teacher is giving you credit for the sessions you attend for this class.)   If you would like to make a presentation at this event, alone or with others, I will be glad to give you triple extra credit for the time you spend preparing and giving it and help you prepare it.  Ask me about it.

NOTE: If you do not give me all of the info above, I may be unable to grade your paper until I get more information from you.  Also, please  remember that I check email only once a day, Mon.-Sat.  If you send something to me by 10 am Mon.-Sat.,  I almost always will see it that same day.  Also remember also that even if you send me a paper by 10 am on a day when I am teaching on campus, I won't have time to grade your paper before coming to campus.  The common expected time by which professors normally finish grading papers is one week.  I try to do it in less, if possible, but I almost never can do it in just one day.

Tips for
Taking This Course
              

(1) Printing This Schedule: Please print a paper copy of this entire schedule and bring it with you to class each week. For a description of the homework for any single week, click on the week either in the left column or in the middle column. If you'd like to make your own one-page paper copy of the "Overview of the Semester" in the middle column just below, copy it with your cursor; then paste it into an MS Word new page, adjust the margins if you want to, and then print it.
     
(2) Keeping Up:
You get points for completing the assignments for this class: the more points you get, the higher your grade.  There's no way around skipping a lot of assignments.  It is wise, therefore, at the very beginning - before you understand the point-grading system, that you try to do all the assignments in the first three weeks.  However, after that, there are shortcuts: (1) you can determine what grade you will get and then decide how maniy points (and which assignments) you can miss.  (2) You can learn to skim/read assignments faster.  (3) Learn to write fast for rough drafts: it not only saves you time but also may help your creative process.
