In order to appeal your grade on your portfolio you need to do the following:
1. Go home and read over both my letter to you and my comments on your individual essays
2. Decide if there’s something specific that you think I overlooked or misinterpreted or just plain missed that would maybe justify you getting a higher grade on your portfolio
3. Write me a letter calmly explaining your objection and clearly articulating why you think you deserve a higher grade and what you think that grade should be based on that reasoning.
4. Resubmit your portfolio to me with your appeal letter no later than next Thursday 11/4
At this point I will read your letter, reexamine the contents of your portfolio, make a decision about your grade, and then email you to schedule a meeting to discuss it.
