This final essay is more like a freewrite. I am not looking for typical essay structure—no need for an intro, thesis, body paragraphs, etc. This is informal writing so that I can get some feedback about your semester. I do expect it to be in MLA format and to be grammatically correct.
This essay should consist of three paragraphs. The first paragraph should be about your experiences in the classroom. What activities did you find to be most helpful? What activities did you find to be least helpful? Please be specific. Look back at Moodle to see what activities we did and think about how they did or didn’t help you. Were there readings that you especially liked or didn’t like?
The second paragraph should be about your writing process. How did your process change or remain the same during this class? What do you think you improved the most on? What do you think you need more work on?
The third paragraph should be about changes that could be made in the course. What do you think I should change next time around? Is there something that you would have liked to cover more? Is there something that you feel we covered too much?
Feel free to add any additional information you deem pertinent to the discussion.
Please take this seriously. I use this information to improve the class experience each semester, and I really appreciate your feedback. Your grade is based on honesty and quality, not whether you did or didn’t like something (I won’t take it personally ☺).
This essay should be placed in your portfolio—due the last day of class.
