Reminders & Things for Feb 7 class

Reminders & Things for Feb 7 class

Hello nice people of English 534,


Here are a couple reminders for Thursday’s class (and you can find most of this info on the calendar too:¬†LINK)

  • Buy your two books soon.¬†Link here to book choices. You need the YA novel soon.
  • Here is the helpful link from Sarah Pape about writing the teacher stories:¬†LINK.
    • How about we make these blogs due this weekend, by Sunday, Feb 10. Share with me in a Google Doc.
    • NOTE: My email is slightly different for Google: kjaxon@mail.csuchico.edu
    • I have no doubt we will revise these probably more than once, so no worries about length, etc. Share what ya got and we’ll start the feedback rounds.
  • Read Brown, ‚ÄúI‚Äôll Have Mine Annotated, Please‚ÄĚ for Thursday
  • Bring project/paper you‚Äôve written for an English class in digital form¬†(email to yourself or have in Google Drive). Check the Portfolio Guidelines (link HERE),¬†especially the section on ‚Äúprior work‚ÄĚ. REALLY REALLY: read the portfolio guidelines and choose the paper based on the review of those guidelines. You’ll be able to ask Dr. Kittle better questions if you’ve looked things over first. YOU NEED TO HAVE A PAPER with you to do the work he’ll be inviting you to do.

¬†We’re¬†back¬†in 306A (BRING BOOK¬†BOX BACK if you have one).

Note about G+:¬†some of you may have received the email from Google about G+ communities being shut down. This is only true for the consumer side, not Google Suite (Google apps for education is what we have on campus: Google actually powers your @mail.csuchico.edu emails). WHAT THIS MEANS TO YOU is that you need to¬†make sure you joined our G+ community¬†using your¬†Chico State¬†log in. Log in to your Chico State portal and then click the link to our G+ and you’ll be good. I can answer any questions in class; we have until late March to figure it out. And, it is always good practice to write your responses in something like Google Docs or your preferred composing platform and paste into G+ (or Blackboard or whatever thing you are being asked to post in): I always have my own copy of the things I write.

Be nice to Dr. Kittle. We need him. And please feel free to email me with questions anytime!
