Monday, 9 March—Last day to turn in would-be final drafts to me and have my iron-clad guarantee that you'll get them back in time to do more revision if necessary. While you'll have another two weeks after this date to work on essays and to confer with me and with classmates, you should assume that the would-be finals you turn in after the 9th are your last shot for that particular essay.
Wednesday, 11 March--A day off from conferencing and workshopping when we--as a class--will spend a little time getting a handle on Essay Assignment Three and the Reflective Cover Letter piece of your final portfolio.
Monday, 16 March—Turn in day for final portfolio (see “Final Portfolio Instructions” and “Final Portfolio Cover Letter Assignment” in the Documents section); also absolute deadline for submission of a would-be final draft for Essay Two to me (i.e. seperate from your portfolio), assuming you're shooting for more than a 1.9 in the class.
Wednesday, 18 March—No class since I, like all my brothers and sisters in the English Department, will be slaving away over portfolios all day.
Thursday, 19 March—You'll get your portfolios back today. Also, this is our last last regular day of class. We'll workshop and conference as usual on this day, and I'll ask you to complete some feedback for me on the class. After the 19th, I'll be available in my office (24-338) for conferences (first come, first served) on Friday the 20th from 9:45 - 11:45 and then again between 1:00 and at least 3:30, and on Monday the 23rd pretty much any time between at least 10:00 a.m and 3:30 p.m. After the 19th, you'll need to make your own arrangements to meet with classmates for peer consultation, but please be sure to do so—remember that consultations both with me and with classmates are still requirements for submission of would-be finals right up until the very end (that is, fully completed peer conference sheets and an assignment sheet with my sign-off still must come in with would-be final drafts).
Tuesday, 24 March, 2:00 p.m.—Absolute deadline for turn in of any and all work.
