Rough drafts

We workshop rough drafts and review how to write a fine draft, which is your homework for next week.

The deadline to turn in late homework for 50% credit is next Tuesday 4/16 at the start of class.

The deadline for extra-credit assignment #3 is next Tuesday 4/16 at the start of class.



  • While workshopping rough drafts, consider: Is the problem clear? Is it clear who has been harmed and who is responsible? Is it clear why this story is systemic? Did you answer your central question with evidence—not just statements of opinion? Have you met the requirements for length and number of sources of evidence (see Week 13 "Homework Tools").
