Author's Choice Assignment:  For your final writing assignment, you will be able to choose which type of writing to do.. It needs to be at least 500 words.  If you want to make it longer or do extra assignments, that is OK, but not required.  I will do my best to offer feedback on your writring, but can only guarantee feedback on the first 1000 words.
In class we will work on writing mechanics, learn more about particular types of writing, and have conferencing time. The schedule for the rest of the semester is:

May 28: Decide the type and topic of your Author's Choice Assignment
                in-class:  Discuss your writing plan.  Check with Jeff. Make an outline.  Start Writing.
May 31: 1st Draft of  Author's Choice Assignment Due, Bring printout to class
June 4/7: Work on writings in class, Prepare for Midterm
June 10, Final Edits of Elective Writing#1 Due
June 11/14: Optional Conferences
June 18:  Final Exam in class

You can choose many different kinds of writing you like, but some possibilities are below:

If you are interested in getting feedback on Resumes and/or Cover Letters, I will be glad to offer it, but those will not count as part of your optional assignment. You can find some helpful information at BUFSJobs.blogspot.kr:

Use of translators and grammar checkers is allowed, but must be mentioned at the bottom of your essay.  Anything
