Tuesday, Nov. 26—Last day to turn in would-be final drafts to me and have my guarantee that you'll get them back in time to do more revision if necessary. While you'll have another two weeks 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 26th are your last shot for that particular essay.
Monday, Dec. 2—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, assuming you're shooting for more than a 1.9 in the class.
Wednesday, Dec. 4—No class since I'll be reading portfolios all day (I'll be reading them on the 3rd too, but not during our class time).
Thursday, Dec. 5—You'll get your portfolios back today. Also, this is our 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 5th, I'll be available in my office for conferences (first come, first served) on Friday the 6th between roughly 12:45 and 3:00, on Monday the 9th between 1:30 and at least 3:30, on Tuesday the 10th pretty much anytime after 10:00 until 12:45 and then again after 2:00 until at least 3:30, and on Wednesday the 11th (for the really desperate) between about 10:00 and 2:00. After the 5th, 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, completed peer conference sheets and an assignment sheet with my sign-off still must come in with would-be finals).
Thursday, Dec. 12, 2:00 p.m.—Absolute deadline for turn in of any and all work.
