Tasks for the Week

  1. By 11:59PM on Monday, October 30, submit your 10/27 Labor Log in Canvas, if you are using the grace period.
  2. By 11:59PM on Monday, October 30, submit your project in the Short Proposal assignment in Canvas. If you are using the grace period, submit your project by 11:59PM on November 2.
  3. Assume that your proposal has been accepted, and begin work on your Genre Analysis Report. I have never had to reject a proposed topic, but I do ask for slight changes occasionally.
  4. Begin your research for your Genre Analysis Report, and be sure to keep track of your sources for your bibliography. Use the instructions in Step 3 of the assignment to guide your research. This is a large project, so I encourage you to work steadily over the next month, rather than waiting until the last minute.
  5. Check for tools that can help with your research by reading the infographic on the right of today’s post and the blog post “12 Essential Chrome Extensions for Student Researchers” from the Educational Technology and Mobile Learning blog on research extensions.
  6. By 11:59PM on Friday, November 3, write your 11/03 Labor Log in Canvas. Specific questions for your log are included in Canvas. The grace period for your log entry ends at 11:59 PM on Monday, November 6.

Note: This infographic needs a text-based transcript. See the Optional Accessibility Transcript Activity for more details.
