  • During class on Feb. 29, Mar. 2, and/or Mar. 4, we will finalize the grading criteria for the visual memoir. Since this is a non-traditional composition, as a group we will determine the grading criteria together. I’ve created a Google Form to record your suggestions in each of the usual categories I use for grading criteria: rhetorical choices, writing, and development. There is a place for you to suggest the basic requirements for the assignment and a final category where you can suggest any grading criteria that do not fit into one of the earlier categories. This is the link to the Google Form: http://goo.gl/forms/DUUXjvROp9. By 5pm on Sunday, February 28, please submit a few suggestions for criteria that you consider important for grading a visual memoir.
