II. Announcements

  • Your grades have been updated on the ePortfolio now.  Go to the digication homepage.  Look at MY COURSES.  You should see this seminar listed.  Look for your grade book.  Average your grades.
  • The final exam in this class asks you to REVISE any ONE project/point-spread (it is optional). If you chose to have this website re-graded, you must return the point-spread on final exam day (no other times available) with your work revised!  No point-spread, no re-grade!

III. THEORIZING WHAT WE ARE DOING: Why Multimodal Composition?

  1. Take a moment and look back on your comments to the reading assignment+annotations that are due today.  Be prepared to discuss this with your colleagues.
  2. In your small group, discuss each person's agreements.
  3. In your small group, discuss each person's disagreements.
  4. Discuss whether or not these issues seem relevant.  In other words, are these issues so commonplace now that all of your classes here at JJay look like this?


  • Chart your COLLECTIVE agreements on a chart.  (If you did not agree with anyone at all, you might have to make your own chart). 
  • Take a photo of this chart before you leave (or have a friend do it for you).  You will need this photo for your ePortfolio.
  • You must finish before the break.

Submit your annotations before you leave today!
