Hopefully, I will have your baseline and intercalary essays graded by the end of this week so we can review and reflect upon them. If so, I will ask you to rewrite one paragraph from your baseline essay in your journal, explaining why you made the changes you did. Additionally, if you receive your intercalary essay back you may make as many changes as necessary to reach your desired grade. Make sure to include the original copy and highlight corrections made on the new draft. Thank you.
