Tentative Class Schedule


And I do mean tentative! If we honor the due dates in bold (under “what's due this week?” column of Table 1.1, below, you will see a sequence of unit assignments segmenting our informal compositional flow) we will win the adaptability and flexibility required for our different projects to emerge and converge in one semester's time. Your projects and the very prose you compose will determine the precise nature of our classroom activities, as well as the sequence of common texts (electronic links and scanned electronic “handouts”) that we will read together each week as part of our compositional process.

Here's what I could use a little clarification on:
Total process = 400 points; 50% = process work and participation: understood.
100 points = 4 writings @ 25 points each - are these any of our four writings, or must they be related to a single concept so as to be included in our Portfolio of Emergence/Convergence?
50 points = final project; as in one main, longer piece?
50 points = portfolio; I thought the 'portfolio' was to be the 4 shorter, plus 1 longer (plus 2 literary reviews for grad students; or in my case one literary and one book review - and now I see that my BOOK REVIEW is actually my LONGEST piece!)
So - I guess I am still confused on what the 'portfolio' consists of; I thought it was the above (4, plug longer, plus 2 for grad students), but then it appears it 'counts' twice
What about the other writings? What if something we might choose to be graded in the portfolio does not fall into a/our chosen single concept?
Apparently a little lost at sea (but enrolled in the latest USFSP Learn to Sail course, so maybe that will help)!
