assessment for the ENG 204 course

Working Draft (25%) – Due Week Nine
The working draft carries a large number of points in the assessment for the ENG 204 course.  There are two reasons for this:

  1. We want to encourage you to begin writing early and invest time in producing a good quality rough draft of your paper. This will enable you to receive feedback from your instructor in time to make the best use of it.
  2. This course aims to develop your independence as writers. Of the three drafts, the Working Draft reflects most accurately your independent ability to produce a well- crafted and organized text.

You are encouraged to produce as full a Working Draft as possible so that you may benefit from feedback on the work you have done.
