Winter Schedule at Brave Writer
This winter will be a rather busy one for me at Brave Writer. I love being busy with my classes, but I've never taught two classes simultaneously before--and I will be doing just that starting on January 7.
This week I'll be grading the final essays from the MLA Research Essay Class, a six-week class that began in early October and finished just before Thanksgiving. Fortunately, the final essays are arriving in beautiful shape which mostly comes from the craziness of going through each rough draft with the proverbial (and editorial) fine-toothed comb to clear up inconsistencies in formatting, lapses in citing sources, and any stylistic awkwardness. Plus, not only did I comb through every rough draft, but the students also offered each other detailed feedback. (Yes, I made it a requirement to offer feedback to at least two other students' work.)
I'm still working on a few outstanding projects for Brave Writer that I hope to complete in December, including preparing the grammar class for e-book status since the class is only offered once per year plus revising and revamping several older editions of The Arrow. And perhaps we'll get to work on an employee handbook of sorts as well.
But this is my current teaching schedule for the Winter Term at Brave Writer:
Groovy Grammar Workshop: January 7--February 1, 2013
Literary Analysis: The Importance of Being Earnest: January 7--February 1, 2013
Playing with Poetry Workshop: February 4--March 1, 2013
So this Winter Schedule should keep me quite busy for a couple of months until the Spring Schedule is posted.
Registration for the Winter Classes begins on December 3, 2012, at Brave Writer. You may take a peek at the other classes available on the Winter Schedule HERE.
