I have decided that I'm perfectly content with this project not being linear whatsoever! I now have five pages of my essay written, but stopped after that to make my sample syllabus (because I was assigned to make two for my Teaching English in the Two-Year College class, I decided one would be the syllabus I would use for my CAP).
I had been dreading making a sample syllabus and thought I might just skip it all together. I didn't realize at first that I'd have to make sample syllabi for my classwork anyway. I think my hang up was finding the right way to phrase course goals and how detailed to make a class schedule, if I made one at all.
Since the ones I make for class will get feedback and will have revision built in, I'm much more confident about having the sample syllabus now. Otherwise I'd have to make appointments at the writing center and hope someone could get me good ideas for the revisions, but I'd hate to put that kind of assignment on the writing consultants!
I've also compiled all the texts I would use from Skyrim (for one unit).
I realized I had a lot more male authors in my working bibliography than women, so I have been working to change a few of my sources so that my working bibliography favors women. I hope to have my updated bib and notes done by the end of next week. With the drama and controversy surrounding the typical male gamer's hatred of girl gamers and the lack of women and people of color in literary canon and in leadership roles in higher education, it is important to me to uplift these marginalized voices in this project.
I also got answers to my questions:
I'm just your average fictional creature, living in a swampland by the sea.
