Be sure to post your draft early enough in order to give your peers time to provide thoughtful and helpful feedback. Post your completed rough draft in the forum by Wednesday 11:55 pm EST. Remember that the earlier you post your essay in the forum, the more time your peers have to provide you with effective and helpful feedback. Posting earlier than the deadline is recommended to ensure that your peers have time to provide feedback AND so that YOU have time to consider that feedback and act upon it. Posting earlier in the week is advantageous for many reasons.
