Moving things forward for next class 2/26

Here are some things to do for next week’s class (2/26):

1. Upload to Bb a refined version of your agenda for the semester (and, of course, keep working on the project itself).

2. Continuing the work you did in class this week, finish writing a short description of your work (what it is and why it matters), in whatever format or style is appropriate for YOUR audience. (Please indicate at the top of the page who that audience is.) The end result should be a piece of writing that you can use in proposals, fellowship applications, and for soliciting feedback from people who can help you hone it: colleagues who’ve applied successfully to such programs in the past, committee members, constituents, or others. If you want feedback from either of us, just let us know. (VC has a lot more experience reviewing grant proposals; JB is a good general editor.) Upload this to Bb, too.

3. Remember to bring the printed copy of your short research description to class: we’ll be doing an in-class activity that requires a hard copy.

Celia Thaxter’s garden, Isles of Shoals, Maine. Childe Hassam, 1890.

4. (optional) Think about summer.

  1. I’m a little confused about the difference between assignments two and three for this week. Are we supposed to write two different research descriptions, or modify our original to fit a specific audience? Thanks!
