Blendkit Week 2 deliverables

They're rough, but here they are. For the record, I decided to work with a different course. I started with ENG 1113: Comp I, but I've decided to focus on ENG 1213: Comp II instead, because I'll be teaching it next semester. I'll be able to implement these ideas sooner. As always, there's more work... Continue Reading →

And away I go

I will be heading to Ann Arbor, Michigan, for the Computers and Writing Conference tomorrow afternoon. I'll be there until Sunday, and I'll present on Saturday morning.
