My Next Freelance Gig

May 11th, 2012 at 12:46 pm

My new freelance gig starts tonight--teaching three classes on citation, research writing, and documentation to graduating college seniors who probably should've learned this in middle school.

It's an hour drive, so my usual salary for these folks has been adjusted to compensate. I can't say I'm thrilled about discussing documentation and citation for a couple hours on Friday night, but hey, I can do it for a few weeks.

I'm giving myself the weekend to enjoy dinner out with DH and Mother's Day, then summer frugality sets in.

    Live it up on Mother's Day Weekend, totally worth it!

    Sorry your topic is a bummer drag. My 7th Grader just learned proper citation, and my eighth grader learned it so well I only had to proof her abstract/paper for Science Fair, not write it! Smile

    I spent nearly a full quarter with my 7th/8th graders on plagiarism and citations. They knew how to do it. However, when left on their own and not hounded, they reverted back to what was easiest - not doing proper citations. At least they had exposure to it, right??
