'''Class Survey'''

*Believe it or not, I actually do value your input when creating my lesson plans. You've been in class a little over a week by now so you have a good idea of how things are going to be run. I want you to (either written or through e-mail) give me '''one (1)''' thing you '''LIKE''' and '''one (1)''' thing you '''DON'T LIKE'''. Be as harsh or kind as you care to be.

*'''What is it?''' It's your first major assignment. It's a (minimum) 2-page typed document detailing your feelings/memories and experiences with literacy. Some questions to guide you while you are writing include:
**How did you learn to read/write?
**What are particularly vivid memories that you have a reading, writing, or activities that involved them?
**What are your current attitudes or feelings toward reading and writing?
**What are some institutions and experiences in your life that have acted as literacy sponsors?
*'''When is it due?''' The first draft is due on Wednesday, September 18th and the final draft will be due Monday September 23rd. No late submissions will be accepted.
*'''What are the formatting requirements?''' This assignment '''MUST''' be at least 2 (two) full pages. To the best of your ability, utilize APA format (click %newwin%[[http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01/|here]] for a sneak preview - remember, its very similar to MLA; on this first assignment, I will be gentle with grading for APA accuracy). Remember, this assignment requires the use of two outside sources (think smart - use the readings we've already done in class). In addition, this assignment needs to be typed, double-spaced and proof-read.

*'''As students are answering these questions, they should be considering what all these memories/experiences/answers suggest overall: “So what?” Students should look for a main theme, a central “finding,” an overall conclusion.'''
