Readings for August 14 &15
If you need a refresher, please review the following:
- FAQs on the Google Drive system.
- Guidelines on “Organizing a Memo” in Markel, on p. 232.
Work for August 14 &15
There are two parts to submitting Project 1:
Writing your transmittal memo.
As I explained in the assignment, the transmittal memo is your chance to tell me anything you want me to know about your project. I will read your memo before I read your bio.
- Sharing your project link.
For this project, your transmittal memo will give me the link to your biography statement on Google Drive (or wherever it is). Since you may have worked on LinkedIn or elsewhere, your link for this project may not go to the Google Drive.
Writing Your Transmittal Memo and Submitting Your Project
Follow these instructions to submit your work:
- Go to the Assignments tab on the left menu in Scholar.
- Choose “P5: Completion Report (Final).”
- Scroll down to the text box below the headings Submission and Assignment Text. You will write your transmittal 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 transmittal 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 transmittal memo and which project it is for.
- Add the current date.
- Tell me anything I need to know before I read your completion report.
- Explain what grade you aimed for and how well you think you met your goals.
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.
