Mat started off the class with announcements. He reminded us to put some notes about our mini-presentation on our portfolios. He said to put everything on the portfolio, including the log, all ten blogs, and especially your reflection! The portfolio gives Mat the freedom to improve your grade.
If you want to improve your grade for project 2, you have to fill out a revision plan and go to the RWC. The more eyes you get on your paper, the better. Because these are portfolio grades, you can continue to revise your work. If the RWC fills up, email Mat and he will help you figure it out.
Pitches are coming up the next time we meet (4/18/18). The pitches are supposed to “sell something” and be engaging. They should be 1 minute, but if it is under 30 seconds, you won’t get credit for it.
If you’re stuck on your genres for project 3, you can look in the back of the BBG at the different genres.
Next, we worked on our Wix portfoilios. Mat showed us how to upload documents. For the final draft, Mat said he prefers if the final draft is in paragraph form on Wix, instead of as a document. He also said to put the older drafts underneath your final draft. We then looked at examples of previous students Wix websites and their reflections.
