Here are details about your writing topic:
In brief, the final exam asks you to write about your experience in this course, with an emphasis on your own engagement and effort in three particular aspects of this course. The three aspects of the course which you are being asked to write about are listed below. Note that you will preview these three things in an intro paragraph, as usual, and write a body paragraph about each of the three:
- Your experience in learning and using the three-part writing format,
- Your experience with the need to carefully proofread your writing on the sentence level, and
- Your experience with collaborative teamwork in the course, most obviously the peer-review discussion boards and reflections, but also including any less formal type of collaboration such as tutoring, brainstorming with classmates, etc.
As in all essays except Essay Three, the use of personal stories as specific examples will be emphasized in grading.
The basic format of this essay is, as always, a three-part format of introduction-main body-conclusion; do not omit the brief concluding paragraph. So, you must use the three-part format in writing this final exam essay, as you have done in other essays. Also as already noted, like in the first two essays, in particular, your specific examples will once again be personal stories. I expect a minimum length of 800 words. Be sure and proofread your final exam essay to the best of your ability. Note that because the final exam is designed for a student to demonstrate independent mastery of the course materials, there will be no partial draft due, nor will I be willing to give feedback on any draft. I will, of course, be willing to clarify my instructions by answering any questions anyone may have.
