A02: LTE Rewrite

Your second writing assignment is the rewrite of your first: a Letter to the Editor (LTE) Rewrite that responds to feedback from your instructor, your classmates, your trusted advisers, or the free student tutors at the Writing Center.

Here’s the schedule:

  • TUE-THU class:
    • Deadline 11:59PM WED SEP 24
  • MON-WED class:
    • Deadline 11:59PM TUE SEP 23

To complete the assignment, you’ll publish a New Post, and save it to two categries (A02: LTE Rewrite, and your username).

What Happens Next
Starting with students who specifically request it, I’ll provide additional feedback on your Rewrite, general and structural at first, then eventually very specific and detailed. We’ll save grammar, spelling, and sentence structure corrections to the end, once we’re fairly certain your letter is stable.

With your first round of feedback, you’ll also receive a grade, which you can continue to improve until you move the letter into your Portfolio at the end of the semester.

Until your argument achieves a letter grade of C, you’ll be told it’s Not Ready for Portfolio. Once it’s good enough to earn a C, it will be deemed Portfolio Ready, but certainly not perfect. You’ll have until early December to make it the best it can be.

  • Post in the new A02: LTE Rewrite category, and your username
  • Failure to post the assignment on time will result in a grade of 0/100.
  • Shorter Arguments grade category (20%)
  • TUE-THU class:
    • Deadline 11:59PM WED SEP 24
    • MON-WED class:
    • Deadline 11:59PM TUE SEP 23
