Final Class Meetings and Final Project

Posted by Jesse Rice-Evans (she/they) on

Are cancelled!


NO CLASSES 12/6 OR 12/13

I will be in the Zoom room on these dates at 2pm if anyone has questions or needs a place to come and work or have a snack. Please take some time to rest, see loved ones, eat something delicious, and otherwise not stress about school work, at least not for my class.

Please make sure you have posted at least 7 digital receipts!

If you have submitted your work on the course site, you are in good shape grade-wise! If you cannot submit work on the course site, email me ASAP at


Class #13: Async Only

Posted by Jesse Rice-Evans (she/they) on


Let’s take a break tomorrow and use class time to work on assignment #3.

When we return from the long weekend, we’ll SUBMIT ASSIGNMENT #3 BY 11/29 EOD by posting it to the course site! (Use “Researched Essay” category!)

See everyone synchronously on 11/29! Eat a snack and get some rest!



Class #12: “Open Classroom”

Posted by Jesse Rice-Evans (she/they) on


We’re using class this and next week as work time! Please bring any questions you have on assignment #3 – researched essay. We will also set up Breakout Rooms for folks who want to co-work together!

Possible topics for questions:

Citations – which format? why? how?

Finding and Evaluating Sources – how? where to look? 

Audience – who are you trying to convince? what considerations do you need to prioritize?

How to Integrate Sources – summary v. paraphrase v. quote

If your time this and next week are better used not attending class, that is fine. Please be sure to submit your digital receipt for the week so I have a record of what you worked on!

See folks at 2pm at our UPDATED ZOOM LINK:



Class #9 – Async Only

Posted by Jesse Rice-Evans (she/they) on

Greetings all,

Please note: we are not meeting synchronously today!~

You all should be working on Assignment #2 – Rhetorical Analysis

Make sure to post a draft of Assignment #2 using the approproate category by class next week 10/25! – this counts as your digital receipt for the week!

If you have not submitted Assignment #1 – WLLN to the course site as a post yet, please do this ASAP! Use category “WLLN” when you post.

I encourage you to email me with your questions, as it is the easiest way for me to help clarify expectations quickly. I will send responses to everyone if they are applicable to everyone!

Thanks all! See you on the 25th to start talking about doing research using CCNY library databases and other reliable sources!



Class #8: Oct. 11, 2022

Posted by Jesse Rice-Evans (she/they) on

Hello all,

Please join for class tomorrow 11 October at 2pm at our regular Zoom link! We’ll play catch-up and talk about plans for the next couple of weeks. If you’re confused about what is going on, you are not alone! Let’s talk about it.

If you have not submitted your stuff for this week, don’t worry about the deadline for this week. We will spend time in class making sure you all complete this week’s submission. 

Looking forward to seeing everyone!



What’s Going On?

Posted by Jesse Rice-Evans (she/they) on

Hi all,

First, I want to extend my apologies for being a little out of touch.

I actually just accepted a full-time job at CUNY, which is super exciting for me, but it means my attention has been divided and I have *not* been doing a good job keeping up with getting feedback to y’all. This will not impact you or our class beyond me being very slow to respond to your work!

AS SUCH, the WLLN is going to be a completion-only grade. This means if you turn in the WLLN by posting it to the course site, you will receive full credit. In class, we will compose short reflections together to think about the process of creating your WLLNs.

Next week is ALSO A HOLIDAY and we will meet asynchronously only. For Class #7, we will all look over Assignment #2: Rhetorical Analysis and look at a sample of this assignment from one of my past students! 

I remain grateful for your patience. Please stay tuned for updates to the course schedule to reflect these changes.
