I have just entered your final grades for ENGL 2311 (or CE ETWR 1002).

You might want to check either your ACC grades or the gradebook checker on our course website. It has been a very busy semester for me, and I may not have entered all grades for everybody. Also, if you are missing quiz grades, one reason might be that you entered your handle differently. Just let me know.

Thank you all for some great writing. I mean that! -- David

Subject: Technologist (ENGL ENGL 2311/ETWR 1002: technologist--final reports note
I just discovered that the template I provided does not include a page for the informational abstract which almost everybody has omitted. Bad me. Although I am delighted to see how nicely the reports using the template turned out.

Here's what I'll do: I'll zero out the points for abstracts in the final grade and add those 3 points to the report grade, resulting in 38.

Please let me know if you find this to be unfair. -- David

Well, I'm up to my eyeballs in your writing projects to review. I will return them as soon as I can, but I'm not a college kid any more -- can't pull all-nighters!

Hope to carefully review your work and return by late Wed.

Get in touch if you have an questions. -- David

All we have left is:

A few reading quizzes this week
Oral report script or video/audio due May 6
Final report prelim. draft draft due May 6

Don't forget that the abstract assignment is a part of your final report but gets a separate grade.

Remember that I'm here to help! -- David

As I said last week, we are in the home stretch. Here's what's doing:

* Read about info searching, technical reports and documentation and take the quizzes.

* plan up a final report (handbook, guide, whatever) and write the online report memo -- it's for a grade; please think it through and provide lots of detail.

If you are stumped for report-project ideas, get in touch with me: I'm part brainstorming machine!

Hope you had some good break time. But I know a lot of you have a day job so it was only a sort-of break. This week:

Study definition and cause-effect writing, and headings and tables.

Your definition and cause-effect documents with headings and tables will be due Apr. 1 (You got two weeks!)
