There are two parts to submitting Project 2:
Writing your reflection memo.
The reflection memo is your chance to tell me anything you want me to know about your project. I will read your reflection before I read the project.
Sharing your project links.
For this project, your reflection memo will give me the link(s) to your spreadsheet and to your analysis memo, if you created one.
Your spreadsheet should be well-organized with clearly labeled headings and an appropriate title. Make sure that the information in your spreadsheet is grammatically parallel (see pp. 122–123 of Markel and if you need more information). In other words, the information in each column should match in grammatical structure.
If you are turning in an analysis memo, ensure that you include all six characteristics of technical communication and that you have used design features (like headings) to arrange the memo in a way that increases readability.
Writing Your Reflection Memo and Submitting Your Project
Follow these instructions to submit your work:
- Go to the Assignments tab on the left menu in Scholar.
- Choose “P2: Writing in Your Field.”
- Scroll down to the text box below the headings Submission and Assignment Text. You will write your reflection memo in this box. (Alternately, you can write in a word processor and copy/paste your text into this box.)
- Add your memo headers (To, From, Subject, and Date). For your reflection memo, you’ll use the following:
- Address your memo to me (Traci) and from you (use your name).
- Add a subject line that indicates this is your reflection memo and which project it is for.
- Add the current date.
- Label the document so I know whether it is your spreadsheet or analysis memo.
- For each part of the project, add the Share link to the document on your Google Drive. Use the instructions for how to get the Share link on the FAQ site if you are unsure how to share documents (see the tips below).
- Explain who the audience for your statement(s) is. What do I need to know to understand the information you have included and the tone you have used?
- Tell me anything else you want me to know about the project, including the content, the layout and design, and any images you included.
Tips on Using Google Drive
The FAQ site has step-by-step instructions for tasks you will complete with your Google Drive, including converting your document if you have worked in another word processor, adding comments, and sharing your documents are all included.
To make sure that you can submit your first project smoothly, pay attention to the following FAQs:
- If you worked in something other than Google Drive, you can use your preferences to automatically convert files you upload to Google Drive automatically.
This step is important so that I can use the commenting features in Google Drive.
- If you already uploaded a document to Google Drive, check the format of your files and manually convert the files on Google Drive if necessary.
- Follow the instructions on how to set permissions and get the Google Drive Share link to get a link that will allow me to read and comment on your document.
Note that if your documents are in the wrong format or the permissions do not allow me to comment, I will return your work ungraded.
