Week 1 & 2
During the first 2 weeks of class students will be introduced to the assignment and be given a model of the newsletter.
Students will create a first draft of their newsletters and then bring them to class.
Students will be placed in small groups of two and give feedback to each other on their newsletters using the rubrics and guidelines provided in class.
Based upon the feedback students will revise their newsletters and then each student will provide the instructor with a copy. The instructor will meet individually with each student (during office hours) to review the newsletter and give specific and constructive feedback.
The student will revise the newsletter based upon the instructor’s feedback.
The student will share his/her newsletter in class with another peer for final review and editing.
The student will do a final edit and publish his/her newsletter for submission to the instructor for a grade.
Students will receive their assessment of the product based upon the rubrics and their grades and place their newsletters in their portfolios.
