Faulkner University


A total of four essays (and a research paper) will be assigned over the course of the semester. A completed rough draft is due on all workshop days for peer review, and all final drafts are due at the beginning of the class. All essays should be written according to the following format: typed, double-spaced, Time New Roman, 12 pt. font, one-inch margins on all sides. That means all essays MUST BE TYPED. All assignments are due on the assigned dates. You are allowed one late assignment. After that, each late assignment will result in your final grade being lowered by one letter grade for each late paper. (For example, if you have 3 late papers and receive a "B" for the course, your final grade will be a "D.")

Because this is a portfolio class, there will not be grades put on these four papers written during the session. I will write my comments on the papers, and they will be given back to you for revision. THE MAJORITY OF YOUR GRADE WILL COME FROM THE PORTFOLIO AT THE END OF THE SEMESTER. You will revise the four papers for the portfolio. (HINT: The more work you do during the semester the less work you will have to do at the end and the better your grade will be. You NEED my comments and your revisions to pass this class. )

Peer review is essential to the success of a college writer. Writers do not create in a box but are part of a community. How much you learn will be based on how much effort you give your fellow classmates. Students will be graded on their responsiveness to their workshop partners.

Final Grade
The portfolio is comprised of two of the four papers written during the second summer session. The Portfolio is worth 50% of your grade and is due at the end of the term.
