Final Project Updates

Thursday, April 11th, 2013

I have posted a number of new items under the Final Projects tab above.

  • The conference schedule is on a drop-down subpage.
  • There is a document with advice, reminders, and information about the draft process, including your peer review process.
  • There is a peer feedback sheet that should be used to guide your responses to classmates’ papers, in addition to any comments you put in/on the actual drafts.
  • There are reminders and guidelines for final submission and the oral reports in a last document.

Assessments Tab

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

I added a new tab above that will take you to a page of assessment rubrics for our various assignments.  The JumpStart and Bridge assessments have been moved here, and I’ve also just added the rubric for the critical article summary/analysis.  The one for reading reports on supplementary long poems is forthcoming but will also be on this page eventually.

Come on, Lorentzenites, explain this post title.

In class I mentioned quickly at the end that I had found a website from the University of Toronto that is using digital technology to analyze the voice(s) of The Waste Land.  The site has clear info about its approach, and you can see how the class identified the voices, can see the results of their computer algorithm (what?! crazy idea) and can even identify and name the voice(s) yourself.  It’s interesting to poke around on, but this last feature is my true interest and I’d love to see any of you who are interested have a go at it.  If you do it, annotate your own text also so you can share with us (I’m especially curious about the “naming” aspect).  Might be fun to do with a classmate or friend also.
