General Instructions for completion of the one-hour Honors add-on LE course
This semester you’ll be enrolled in an LE course with an additional 1-hour Honors component. You discussed this course during EN106 last semester, so you should already have a plan in mind for your Honors project. Hopefully you have chatted at least briefly about a possible project with the instructor for that course, but if you have not, you need to contact your instructor this week to schedule a time to meet during conference hours. Remember – this project should develop from your ideas. Do not expect your instructor to initiate a project idea for you. That said, brainstorming with your instructor can prove quite helpful, as you may take advantage of their expertise for guidance. The Program Director informed your instructors that you must take the lead with this project and reminded them that your one-hour credit Honors grade is weighted. Only a truly exceptional project should earn an Honors A.
While your instructor has complete control over advising you as you develop and complete the project and ultimately over its assessment for a grade, you should send the following information to the Program Director:
Week Three – your basic project idea and a timeline for stages of your project
Week Eight – a brief progress report on your project’s development
Week Twelve – a rough draft of your project
Week Sixteen – a copy of your final project in electronic form, and a completed course evaluation that the Director will send to you for the one-hour Honors portion only. The completed project may be submitted in Week Seventeen, if that is when you and your instructor agree that you will submit it.
