Workshop: Truthometer drafts

Today we are workshopping your drafts with help from the Writing Center, but before we get to it, our tutors will begin by giving us a sense of what the WC can do for you, where it’s located, and how to make an appointment.

The Writing Center!



Workshopping the Truthometer posts

  1. Make sure your draft is titled correctly and is easy to find on your site. It should have [DRAFT] before and/or after the title of the post (example: “[DRAFT] Did Vegas Shooter Attend Bernie Sanders Rally in 2016? [DRAFT]”)
  2. Everyone will respond to 2 drafts today.
  3. To find out who you are responding to, go to this spreadsheet. Find your name the blog URLs you will respond to in the next two columns.
  4. For each author: go to their blog, find their name and their draft, and complete this form.
  5. At the end of class, we’ll look at some of the results together.

Homework for Tuesday, 10/10

  • Post your final Truth-o-meter fact-check as a new post. That is, do not overwrite the DRAFT post; instead create a new post so that I can compare the changes. This post is due by midnight on Tuesday, 10/10 unless you go to the Writing Center. If you do that, and you email me the client report form, you may turn in your work on Thursday, 10/12 instead.
