A06: OpEd Rewrite

Your sixth writing assignment is the rewrite of your fifth: an OpEd Rewrite that responds to feedback from your instructor, your classmates, your trusted advisers, or the free student tutors at the Writing Center.

The Deadlines:

  • TUE-THU class:
    • Deadline 11:59PM MON OCT 27
  • MON-WED class:
    • Deadline 11:59PM TUE OCT 28

To complete the assignment, you’ll publish a New Post, and save it to two categories (A06: OpEd Rewrite, and your username).

What Happens Next

If you’re in TR section, I’ve provided specific deep structural feedback on your A05, in the post titled Feedback A05 TR, so you’ll improve your OpEd without further interference from me unless you specifically request it.

Members of the MW section haven’t seen their feedback yet, but will shortly, in the post titled Feedback A05 MW. I’ve extended the original deadline by 48 hours to reflect the lateness of the advice I will be offering in that feedback post. As always, for students who respond early with substantial changes responsive to early critique, I’ll be delighted to engage in additional feedback sessions in person or through the established blog practice of responding to requests for “feedback please.”

You will receive a numerical grade (translatable to a letter grade) following the posting of your A06. 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 always still improvable. You’ll have until early December to make it the best it can be.

The Nitty Gritty

  • Post in the new A06: OpEd Rewrite category, and your username
  • Give your OpEd a Title
  • Use informal citation in the body of your essay, with links to sources.
  • Provide a Works Cited.
  • 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 MON OCT 27
  • MON-WED class:
    • Deadline 11:59PM TUE OCT 28
