Other Guidelines for Evaluation:

For this first paper, you might not have much to say, and that is okay. This round is mostly about getting used to the format.
The template for the Cover Letter is available on Canvas, under "Files"-->"Unit 1"--> "Paper Portfolio Template.Dotx"
"Doc Design: The Cover Letter" & "Doc Design: The Portfolio"
You should spend no more than 30 minutes on this part of the assignment.
Website Entry Template:
Editor, author, or compiler name (if available). Name of Site. Version number.
Name of institution/organization affiliated with the site (sponsor or publisher), date of resource creation (if available). Medium of publication. Date of access.

If your work underwent other revisions, such as blog post responses, extracurricular peer review, or visits to the Miller Writing Center or other tutoring, include these in the final part of this portfolio.
This is as simple as cutting and pasting the document into your portfolio document. You should not change, alter, or correct any part of this document.
Any drafts which help reveal the process you underwent in creating your final paper.
2. Other Artifacts:
These could be anything from scanned-in scraps of paper, to important blog posts.
•Essay should be typed and double spaced with 12 point standard Times New Roman font, black ink, and standard 1” margins all around.
