1. Draft Midterm Essay
Where to post your essay:
- Log on to MyCI and go to CIDocs
- Click on the Shared with Me folder on the left side of the screen.
- Find the English 105 folder I shared with you and open it.
- Find the folder labeled Midterm Essay and open it.
- Click on the new button then scroll down and click on Google Docs to create a new doc.
- Click on “Create and Share” when the pop up “Create in a Shared Folder?” comes up. Everyone in the class has access to everyone’s documents. Often, classmates will read and comment on other classmates’ draft entries.
- Name the doc using your first name (e.g. Clifton’s Midterm).
For the draft to receive credit, it must be complete, which means it is 4+ pages, has a works cited section, and 4 outside sources in the essay. As this is a draft, it is expected to be rough, but the basic elements need to be in place. You should continue revising the draft through next week
