You will turn in the paper before 30 March (at 1700). I will grade you on this draft as well as the final draft which you will turn in on 30 April. Your final grade will be dropped by 1/2 a letter grade for each day you delay beyond 30 March and 30 April.
On April 12, I will return my comments for a rewrite. Final manuscript is due on 30 April.
During the last week of class, you will give a 30 minute oral presentation of your manuscript and entertain questions. We will meet before the presentation to discuss your presentation. I'll suggest revisions to your proposed presentation which you will then present. I will also meet with each of you to discuss your presentations after the fact.
