Take Your Mulligan

Golf+Ball+HoleIn golf, a mulligan is a do-over, a chance to take a second swing at a ball for a better result. Now that you have reviewed your graded essays, you have the chance to do just that.

In class, you worked through the TEASE organizer to identify specific ways to improve one of your submitted essays. Here is your mulligan: If you are willing to rewrite the essay with an eye toward improving at least one score point, then I am willing to adjust your score card (grade) for that essay. Here are the requirements:

  1. This is a voluntary assignment. If you choose not to do the rewrite, please consider the improvement suggestions as you complete your essays for the semester mock exam.
  2. The essay must be typed, double spaced, 12 pt.
  3. Your essay must include a separate paragraph at the top that summarizes your revision goals and what you have done differently on this essay than on your original draft to improve. Follow this format:
    My original essay received a score of ____ because ____. I have done _____ so that I may improve to at least a score of _____.
  4. The opportunity window closes at 11:59:59 pm. At midnight, the assignment locks. You will not be allowed to submit a late mulligan.

Mulligan essays must be submitted to Edmodo by Friday, January 8. Good luck!
