Academic Writing II – week 14, January 17th, 2014

Next week: we will write the final timed essay in class. This will be essay #3.  All students must complete 3 essays to pass this course. Students absent on this day will automatically fail the course. We will also read each other’s timed essays and my selection of  student essays #2, and do some final free writing.


To those students whom it may concern:

  • finish writing the following essays (which were due a looong time ago, by the way) and bring them to the next (final) class. I will not accept essays after next Friday, Jan. 24th. I am not coming to KPU again after this date. Nor will I accept emailed essays after this date.
    • your timed essay
    • essay #1 (persuasive essay)
    • essay #2 (response essay)
  • bring to next class all your free writings for this semester
