Dealing with David’s Notes

When you get feedback from me, you may get stressed when you see the red corrections on the page. However, I don't want you to get disheartened, so here are a few things to consider:

  1. Not all the red marks mean you are losing marks.
  2. Some areas I will mark that we haven't yet discussed in class but are something I want you to work on. You won't lose marks for this.
  3. If I write the words "oof" or "ugh" or make a happy face 🙂, sad face 🙁, or some other note about your characters—this is a good thing. It is me responding to your script and your story.
  4. If you can't read my writing or want clarification, you can ask me about it on Discord, email, or we can go through it in a meeting.
  5. I am happy to listen if you want to discuss your mark.
  6. Don't get stressed out. Each time is an opportunity to grow and improve. If you continue to do the work, it's hard to fail this class.

Lastly, as a reminder, every assignment is out of 2.5%. This is 2.5% of your final mark.

  • You will get a 2.5% if you meet all the criteria.
  • 1.25% if you do the assignment but don't meet all the criteria.
  • 0% if you don't do the assignment. (Doing the assignment always gets you a mark).

I think that is it for now. I will update you if I add more.

Also, we will have a Teaching Assistant (TA). They will read your script every second week, so they may also have more notes.
