Hi Group Three! Apparently, I am your leader. :)
To get us started, I thought the simplest route would be to generate a post we could all comment on and to create a rough plan for the days ahead. Please read over what I've posted here and let me know if this will work for you. Once I've gotten feedback/buy-in from everyone, I'll post an actual plan for us. (Also, we can use the commenting feature on this post as a way of getting in touch with each other with general questions/updates over the course of the week.)
Currently, we have five group members and (I believe) four pieces of writing to workshop. (Alma, based on your intro, it sounds like you won't be sharing a piece of writing? If I'm wrong, please let me know and I'd adjust accordingly.) This means we should be able to read/respond to one person's writing per day.
For distributing work, my suggestion would be for everyone to email the group by 9am EST on their assigned day with their document and/or a link to it online. However, since this is an asynchronous process, it might make sense to share your work with the group as soon as you're ready to. That way people can get a head start on their reading and feedback, if that's useful to them.
For distributing feedback, I have one question: How do you want to receive feedback? Is a document from each group member with comments enough or are you also hoping for us to talk about your piece as a group? Also, did people want to try and set up times to talk via Google Hangout or Skype?
(To be honest, I'm going to be very busy with grading over the next few days, so it will be pretty difficult for me to find a time to "meet" virtually. However, I'm happy to try and set something up for others, even if I can't join in.)
: Sounds like everyone's interested in receiving individual feedback from each group member, but also open to finding a way to also talk as a group. See the Google Doc for a suggested f
Please drop a comment here to let me know what you're thinking and if the ideas above work for you. Ideally, I'd like to get word back from everyone tonight, so we can be ready to go in the morning.
ETA: Okay, everyone, here we go! Based on the comments and our official schedule, I've put together a plan for this week. You should also have received an invite to a shared Google Docs Folder. Please take a look and see if this works for you. Suggestions are welcome!
