Class Blackboard for May 4



Last Day of Class!

I will send you comments and grade on your Confection Projects between now and finals week. Please let me know if you're using the Confection for the ReVision.


The Revision Project will also be due by Thursday, May 11 at noon. Be sure to post the revision in a folder called "revision" (leave the original version as it was in its original folder), and send the URL (if appropriate) to the Webx discussion "revisions."

If you're revising an image-based project, a commentary will also be due by that same day and time. No printout of the project itself is required.

If you're revising your essay, please see the directions on the ReVision assignment page itself.
