Due next Wednesday, Oct. 13, 2010

10 pts. extra credit: go to the "UALR Writer's Network's first event for this year.  It is a workshop designed to help students write stronger academic essays led by Dr. David Fisher of the Department of Rhetoric and Writing on Monday, October 11, from 1-2 pm in the Donaghey Student Center Room 205D."

Request a slot for presenting your project. Any class between now and the end of the semester is alright, up to two people on a given day, first come first served. The course index/topic list shows the available class days. Ignore what is already listed under future dates - we can schedule you any time. Do this by email to

1. Put your answer to this question on your blog under the heading HW7, and label it "1." Regarding your term project topic, give a list of references to useful Web sites and other information. Check the blogs of the others in the class because, for HW #6, people were asked to provide some Web sites relevant to your topic and provide reviews of them. You may quote the reviews in your document (use quotation marks) if you like. The basic idea here is to begin to assemble everything you have on the topic in one place so you have something to work with. Here are the blogs of the members of the class:

Append to your posting any other information you have gathered about your term project topic in previous homeworks. This includes any notes and graphs based on the Delphi method, discussions on TRIZ or prediction markets relevant to your topic, etc. Don't worry about organization for this question, just get it all in one place. 

2. Give your answer to this question the label "2." Design an outline for your report (if you are going to do a report). If you are going to write a story, design something about it (a plot? An outline? Some alternative possible themes? Whatever - if I had experience as a creative writing instructor I might be able to provide further guidance.) If you want to do something besides a report or a story (say a program, or whatever it is), you are welcome to check with me for suggestions, or just figure out yourself what to do for this question that is equivalent. Give the outline.

3. Give your answer to this question the label "3." Reorganize your answer to question 1 using the outline of question 2. The resulting report is a start to your project, and is the answer to this question!
