Log 4: Abstract for the Final Essay

We're now at that point in the semester when it's time to start thinking seriously about your final essay for the seminar. This entry in your research log asks you to develop an abstract for that essay. As a group, we will then workshop your abstract during seminar.

In the entry, please include the following:

During seminar on March 3rd, we will use a creative writing model to workshop your abstracts. Each of them will be reviewed in depth by your peers and me. During this review, you will listen to the feedback. Once the feedback is finished, you will then have an opportunity to briefly respond. We will dedicate roughly twelve minutes to each abstract.

Before seminar on the 3rd: please make sure you push your abstract to your research log. During seminar, we'll project the abstract for everyone to read. You are also welcome to bring print copies for circulation.

Get in touch with questions or concerns, and thanks again. I'm looking forward to reading these abstracts.
