- Write a 12-15 page seminar paper
- Grade 16 student portfolios, and write brief comments about each one
- Select two essays from those portfolios to nominate for publication in a first-year writing magazine
Off to work on that paper.
UPDATE: another goal: learn German. I took a "German for Reading" class this past summer, and I've sung a lot in German, so I know a fair amount of vocab. But a friend loaned me her first-year German textbook (complete with CD) so I can learn helpful phrases like "How much does this beer cost?" and "Two doner kebabs, please" in preparation for my New Year's trip to Berlin. Tschuess!
