Status Reports: Brainstorming with Your Classmates

In a status report, you'll briefly tell your classmates about your work.  What topic are you focusing on?  What are a couple surprising things you've found?

One of the most important parts of your status report isn't the topic itself, but your progress in the writing.  Talk about what you've done to make time for your research.  Describe how you chose your sources.  Ask questions - find out what your classmates think about your topic.  If you're torn between different ideas, mention those.  If there's something about your project you just can't figure out, ask your classmates for ideas.  This is the perfect place for brainstorming.



Brainstorming Is Freewriting
The goal for a status update isn't new research - you don't need citations, you don't need to worry about grammar or syntax.  Instead, I want you to reflect on the writing experience so far.  So talk about whether or not you're following your outline, or if there are more sources you're still looking up, or whether you found your secondary and scholarly sources to be helpful, that kind of thing.  Treat this as freewriting - you're simply sharing your personal writing experiences with your classmates.

Responding to Your Classmates
When responding to status updates by your classmates, let them know if you are experiencing the same things right now.  If someone's facing writer's block, do you have suggestions?  If someone's having trouble applying a CHAT term, do you have some ideas?

Quoting Your Classmates
In your papers, you can also include quotes from your classmates.  So if someone in the discussions provides you with a really helpful idea, feel free to cite them in your paper (something like "As Ryan said in the July 13th discussion..." works fine.)

  3. Last year, Dior had tested the concept of the "seasonal" watch with its first Dior VIII Montaigne Saisonniere timepieces, designed to be in sync with the replica watches Maison's pret-a-porter collections. Seasonal implies limited in time, and rather than limit the number of timepieces in the collection, Dior had experimented with the idea of making cartier replica its seasonal watches available only for a limited time, much like its seasonal clothing lines. Under the artistic direction of Raf Simmons, Dior's pret-a-porter replica hublot lines had lent themselves beautifully to the "seasonal" exercise, given the unconventional color combinations of Mr. Simmons' collections. They provided a baseline of basic colors for the Dior VIII Montaigne Saisonniere line, capturing Mr. Simmons' ability to inject a clean, streamlined freshness omega replica into Dior's runway collections. This year, despite the seat of artistic director left vacant with the departure of Mr. Simmons, Dior has added two new watches to its seasonal lineup, still taking inspiration from the Maison's pret-a-porter collections.

  5. Mention Bamford rolex replica Department and you’ll get alloyed looks from watch lovers. Understandably, there are those who anticipate that customizing a Rolex is about sacrilegious. On the added hand, there are those who avert Bamford and assert that they accommodate a air-conditioned advantage for watch lovers who adulation replica watches but wish something a little different, for a array of reasons. I’m not a fan of all of their work, but I’m absolutely addicted of their new Heritage collection.
