Introduction

Here is where you will identify the grade you feel you have earned in this class. Use quotations from the syllabus, from my comments, and any other pertinent sources. Use your grades. Document your assertion of that which you believe would be your fair grade. This introduction should be approximately 500 words. We will edit your introduction, with your cover letters for each section, toward the end of the semester.

  1. At this point in the class I feel that I’m really up to speed with work. I have at least a first draft cover letter written for each page of my portfolio. I haven’t begun editing them yet but I do plan to spend a bit of time over the next weeks fixing them up and making improvements. Until then, I have my rough draft cover letters uploaded to their respective pages as placeholders. All pieces of evidence of my development in the class (that have been completed thus far) have been uploaded to their appropriate pages. I will continue to upload more evidence of my progress as I complete them. I don’t have any specific questions about the portfolio but I would enjoy it if we took some time in class in the next two weeks to do some peer review of cover letters.

  2. All my cover letters are finished but they are all rough drafts. I have uploaded some of the cover letters but most of them are not uploaded because they still need editing. As far as the rest of my portfolio goes, I have most things finished. My daily journals and reading journals are all finished but I need to scan and upload them to my wordpress. All evidence for my portfolio is already finished and all objects have been uploaded to their rightful pages. The cover letters are a work in progress and will change slightly for me as I finish the last few pieces of writing for this course.

    The only thing I believe I need help with is Essay 4. Since we have started it recently, we haven’t had time to edit it in class. I do believe this will be remedied in the next few classes but it would be really helpful.

  3. I have rough drafts of my cover letters, but I would like to spend more time editing them before posting them. It would be nice if we could have a day to discuss the kinds of topics people wrote about in their cover letters and check to see if our cover letters properly address the prompts. My ePortfolio will be complete after finishing all the class and reading journals for the semester and when essay 4 is entered in as evidence in process and craft. Essay 4 is still in the works, but should be completed soon.
    Overall, all of the last things that need to be done are half way done. Using class time to work on them would be nice since we can ask questions if they arise.

  4. All of my cover letters are written and I have uploaded all of my cover letters except introduction and craft. In addition my cover letters are rough drafts and I still need to edit them. Also all my evidence and final drafts are uploaded.

  5. I feel that I am up to date with everything in the class. I have written all of my cover letters, and I am currently working on editing them. Only one of my cover letters is posted. I believe that it is my introduction. I am up to date on uploading my evidence. I only have my final essay left to complete. It will probably be completed along with my portfolio in two weeks.

  6. I feel I am making great progress with my portfolio, although I have not uploaded drafts of all of my cover letters I have almost all of them done. They are all pretty solid, they just require a bit of editing. I have kept up with uploading all of my essay drafts in the process section. I also have been consistent with writing my journals, but have not uploaded them yet. My essay four is almost done, I just need to edit it and add a conclusion paragraph. I would greatly benefit from using class time to work on the portfolio, in case I think of any questions; and to perfect the drafts.

  7. So far in the semester I have everything done. I’m on top of everything; I have all my class journals, reading journals, essays (except essay4), and my cover letters done. However, the cover letters are only drafts since I haven’t edited, yet. I also have everything uploaded except for the cover letters, not until I have edited them. Some of the evidence is not uploaded either. I need a couple of evidence to be uploaded. I have it all saved but not yet uploaded. Basically, I’m up to date with out anything late and everything is saved up. I will have everything uploaded before the portfolio is due.

  8. I have all of my cover letters written and edited, except I still need to edit my craft cover letter. None of my cover letters are uploaded yet, but i plan to upload them soon. I still need to upload my PowerPoint’s for my GLD, my final work cited list and my Essay 4.

  9. All of my cover letters are written, but they need to be edited and uploaded still. I am in the process of turning my evidence into PDFs and uploading them. I only need time to do my Essay #4 and editing my cover letters.

  10. I have finished 2 of my cover letters, process and collaboration. I am currently working on introduction, I will try to finish the rest of the cover letters by the end of today. I have not edited my cover letters, but I plan to do so today also. None of my cover letters are uploaded on my website yet. I have only uploaded my essays and two in-class writing. I will upload everything have I edit all of my work. I was wondering where to we put our work, i.e journals and responses?

  11. Right now, I have 3 out of 5 cover letters done. I am currently working on the others and editing finished ones. I still need to upload my drafts onto Process section and my other evidences. Throughout this next week, I will upload cover letters and evidences onto my blog.

  12. Uploading in the next 2-3 days: Process, Ethic, Craft, Collaboration, and Rhetoric Cover Letters

    Uploading a week from now: Journals, Reading Responses, and Essay 4

    Uploaded: Introduction Cover Letter, PDFs of all presentations for GLDs,

  13. As of now I only have my introduction cover letter drafted. I have yet to edit the introduction but I will be done by this coming Monday. As for the rest of the cover letters I have not drafted any due to my lack of time management. However the introduction along with the cover letters will be completed by Monday. They will be edited and posted by Monday. As for the evidence belonging to each of the portfolio sections I am up to date with everything. Everything that must be uploaded is except for my daily journals and responses. As far as questions I do not have any for the time being. I apologize for my lack of completeness but I assure you everything will be completed.

  14. I am still working on all of my cover letters and I plan on finishing them all by tomorrow because there are a few things I want to fix before downloading them to my portfolio. All of my cover letters will be edited by today in the afternoon and some changes will be made before tomorrow. The things I still need to do are add evidence to my cover letters which is why they are being edited and so that there will not be any repetitive sentences in them. I have no question thus far but if I do I will ask you through your email.

  15. For my wordpress portfolio I have written all of my cover notes (except craft) and uploaded them although I am still making revisions. Most of my assignments are uploaded I just need to finish add some stuff. I won’t upload my journals until I finish them with the remaining days left in the semester. Along with journals I haven’t finished the reading responses I will upload them as soon as I am done. All of my final draft essays are shown with the cover notes. Evidence is provided. Some of my rough drafts are missing but I will soon upload them along with essay 4 final and rough drafts.

  16. So far I’m up to date on all the cover letters. I have edited them and I will edit them one more time before I put them on my page. There might be a couple of things that I still have not uploaded but it wont take long to do. My journals are half way done. I’m missing just the last couple of weeks so shouldnt be to hard to catch right back up. Other then that everything is looking up to date. I’ll will upload everything before the last day of class.

  17. Up until now I’m caught up with all the assignments. I’ve written all my cover letters, however I still need to revise them in more detail before I upload them. I’ve finished all other writing assignments such as my literary respones and class journal entries. I’m still in the process of writing my draft for the fourth essay, so I really just have to focus on this. I haven’t had any issues with word press, so I should be good with turning everything in on May 2nd.

  18. All of my cover letters are written except for the Introduction that I’m still working on. Most of them are edited. No, not all of my cover letters are uploaded, but I don’t think that will be difficult to do at all. I’m still working on my evidences. I still need to upload some of my rough drafts for the process section. Additionally, I’m still not done with my class journals or my book journals. I find the book journals to be more challenging. I think I just need to find time to upload and finish all of these. Sorry for turning this in late. I forgot. I haven’t finished everything, but I’m glad I’ve gotten further than I expected. I look forward to finishing up this year.

  19. I have done all of my cover letters, but still have to go through an editing process to make them flawless as possible. My journals are up to date, but the reading journals are still in the process of finishing. So far, my essay four needs a bit more fine tuning and time to be processed to be edited and critiqued more.

  20. I am still working on all of my cover letters and I plan on finishing them all by tomorrow because there are a few things I want to fix before downloading them to my portfolio. All of my cover letters will be edited by today in the afternoon and some changes will be made before tomorrow. The things I still need to do are add evidence to my cover letters which is why they are being edited and so that there will not be any repetitive sentences in them. I have no question thus far but if I do I will ask you through your email.

  21. My cover letter are all written, but are in need of revision therefore are not posted on my blog. I also have not uploaded my evidence onto my blog. I want to complete and edit everything before I post it on my page. This way I will not mistake the work in need of editing for work that is completed. I am well along with my evidence, my only problem is just uploading all of my essay drafts in pdf form.

  22. I have all of my cover letters written. I just need to add some finishing touches to them. I have not uploaded them to WordPress yet, nor my supporting evidence. But that can be done quickly. I am still working on Essay 4. Other than that, I am all caught up with the rest of the work, such as the readings, and class journals.

  23. I have most of my cover letters done, I need to revise them this weekend and they should be done by Monday. I would like to work on Essay 4 more in class, another computer workshop maybe? I also have to do all my reflections for the readings, other than that I am well on my way to finishing my portfolio. If any of my files are unreadable let me know (I’m not sure which ones I accidentally put as .word instead of .pdf) thank you!

  24. I have a rough draft of all of my cover letters. They need to be edited, but they are written. I have not yet uploaded my cover letters because I want to have them completed before I upload them. I have all the evidence uploaded, I think, because I have been doing it throughout the semester, but I need to double check it. I think I just need to review everything one more time, but everything is pretty much completed.

  25. At this point in class I feel like i’m up to date I just need to finish the introduction cover letter and some of my reading responses but I feel pretty good about my work so far. As for the editing I also need to do that I haven’t edited any of my cover letters yet.

  26. As of now, all of my covers are written and a few need editing. Since I am not finishing editing I have not uploaded them. For the evidence, I have the essay up and I will be uploading the rest of the evidence in the upcoming week. Since everything is done except for editing, I do no need specific help

  27. As of now, I have to work on my Introduction cover letter and start of the Rhetoric and Ethics cover letters. I caught up with all my class journals and I need to finish my reading journals. As of Essay 4, I have not started on it. I will probably start on it latter on in the week.

  28. For me personally this semester had been really busy. as of right now I have three out of the five cover letters done with some editing needing to be done. I have the evidence semi complete. Although being that I still have alot of work to do I feel very confident that I can complete all work in time.

  29. As of now, I have completed all my cover notes for my portfolio. I just need to revise them and have a peer revised them before I post them onto the pages. For my evidences, I have upoaded my essays and drafts, but I am still working and revising my journals/reflections for the readings/class. I know I will have everything completed in time if I continue at my pace.

  30. At this point, I have completed all my cover letters for my portfolio. After I revised them once again and have a peer revised them I will upload them onto the corresponding pages. As for my evidence, I already have my essasys and my rough drafts up, I just need my four essay and finish off my journals/reflections on class/readings and I will be complete. Although there doesn’t seem to be much time left, but I know I will have everything in on time if I continue at this pace.
