Monday, 1 Dec.—Absolute deadline for turning in a would-be final draft of Assignment Two (again, ideally many folks will submit would be finals of the second assignment before this date, but, again, if a would-be final of this assignment isn't legitimately submitted by this date, a 1.9 is the best grade you can receive in the class).
And Also on 1 Dec. . .
Last day to turn in would-be final drafts of any assignment and have my guarantee that you'll get them back in time to do more revision if necessary. While you'll have more than a week and a half after this date to continue working on essays and conferring with me and with classmates, you should assume that the would-be finals you turn in after the 1st are your last shot for that particular essay.
Friday, 5 Dec.—Last regular day of class. We'll be doing conferences and workshopping on this day (as on pretty much every day leading up to it), and during the days that follow you can visit me in my office for conferences. I should be available there (24-338) pretty much any time between roughly 10:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. on Monday the 8th and Tuesday the 9th. After the 5th, you'll need to make your own arrangements to meet with classmates for peer consultation, but don't forget that a completed peer consultation form still needs to come in with any would-be final drafts.
Wednesday, 10 Dec., 12:30 p.m.—Absolute deadline for turn in of any and all work (Just drop essays by my office, and slide them under the door if I happen not to be there when you come by.)
