- Writing groups have been moved to the right side of this page. Prof. Torg moved the location because for some students outside of the United States, Google products have been blocked. Don't forget that you need to be logged into Digication in order to access the student portfolios to the right. As students finish their ePort set up and mail Prof. Torg their link, he will add it to the links on the right.
If you are having trouble, don't hesitate to write Prof. Torg with a question!

Writing Groups for Summer II English Composition with Professor Torgerson
Because some of the students in our summer course are outside of the United States, they are having trouble accessing the Google Documents. For that reason, I have moved links to our writing groups here where we all can access them.
For the students who are unable to use Google products, I have asked them to post their work directly on their ePortfolio. It will not be as easy to comment on their work there, but you will still be able to read their work. We will figure out the best way for you to comment.
Note: These groups below are just arranged alphabetically. You are always welcome to do additional reading and commenting on classmates’ writing that you find especially interesting. Reading your classmates' writing is a great way to learn about writing and figure out how you will write.
Prof. Torg just wants to make sure that everyone is receiving some comments from classmates.
As Prof. Torg receives links to ePorts, he will add them below:
NEW WRITING GROUPS! SOME PEOPLE ARE BEHIND. JUST TRY TO COMMENT ON THEIR MOST RECENT POST. THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE CAUGHT UP, YOUR WORK CAN SERVE AS AN EXCELLENT EXAMPLE. TRY TO SUPPORT EACH OTHER!
