For Tuesday (2/2)

A couple of things for Tuesday:

Your “Omega Men” essay is due!  Details here. (I’ve offered up my four rules of comma use to guide you through this not-so-tricky-really punctuation mark.)

For Tuesday, we’ve also got a short writing event to close out our discussion of Ben Winters’ The Last Policeman. (See below.  The password is: “Winters” – – no quotes, capital “W”.)

Looking ahead – – for Thursday:

Start in on Paolo Bacigalupi’s The Water Knife.  It would be great to get to Chapter 15 of the novel – – but getting through the first four or five chapters will be adequate for our purposes.

Wikipedia!  I’ve updated our schedule so that dates now correspond to weeks.  We are on “Week 6.”  For Thursday, you should complete the “trainings” on “Evaluating Articles and Sources” and “How to edit.”  Complete the exercise on evaluating a Wikipedia page. (You should also obviously have created a Wikipedia account and messed around a bit in your sandbox.). We’ll set aside some time on Thursday to check-in on the Wikipedia project and for you to start submitting possible Wikipedia topics/articles to develop.
