Monday, Dec 2—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 still have another week and a half 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 2nd are your last shot for that particular essay.
Friday, Dec 6—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 class on the 6th, 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 6th, 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, a completed peer conference sheet and an assignment sheet with my sign-offs still must come in with a would-be final).
Thursday, Dec. 12, 2:00 p.m.—Absolute deadline for turn in of any and all work. (Students at 11:30 should note that this is a one day extension beyond the date listed on our course information.)
