RW4CB: Final Exam Writing Portion

We took the writing portion of our final exam today. You had the hour and the hour only to write a rhetorical analysis essay based on the article given to you. If you were absent, you must schedule a make-up time with me immediately. Your Blackfish RA essays are in the gradebook. If you cannot figure out how to move them into the correct folder, share them with me and I will do it for you.

The rest of our 20% projects will take place next Monday/Tuesday, and we will go over the grammar/APA format review those days prior to the reading/grammar portion of our exam on Wednesday.
