Yeah, so the Voicethread thing isn’t working. It is totally NOT because I don’t know how to do it, though. Just so you know.
So, below I have posted three sample research papers that received various grades. While you could certainly just read through them, the best thing to do would be to read each and use the rubric I handed out in class to try to determine the grade each received and why. I would even encourage you to post your comments (constructive, mature comments!) on this post to have a type of “discussion” about them. (This is what I wanted to do on Voicethread, but, oh well…) Getting various points of view about the papers will, hopefully, deepen everyone’s thinking about the paper criteria and how to best meet it.
Tomorrow evening, I will post MY actual grade and comments for each paper so you can see if you and I are “on the same page,” so to speak.
