Writing Workshop (WW) Assignments
These exercises will be completed during class time on the day indicated and uploaded to Celia at the conclusion of that day's session.
The purpose of WW is to help you improve your critical reading and rhetorical skills, and they will be graded as "showed up and made a sincere effort" = full points; "no show" = 0 points. In addition, your thoughtful and enthusiastic participation in WW and completion of the exercises will contribute to your "participation" points, as shown in the course grading scheme.
The writing workshop assignments are password protected and are available only students enrolled in PHYS 496. Please treat these exercises as confidential; they are not to be reposted or distributed to others outside the class.
