I’m going to be gone at a conference on Thursday. If we’re going to move the paper due date, we may as well move it to Friday since I won’t be there to pick up the papers on Thursday anyway.
Before you cheer too much and make further plans to put off working on your papers, you will still have the homework I’d planned for you Wednesday and Thursday nights. That is not moving. It’s not onerous, but it’s still 12-15 pages of reading from an argument textbook each night. For some of you, it will take a while to work through and understand what you’ve read.
Call it a mixed blessing and use it to your advantage, but don’t let things get out of hand as you may very well have homework in other classes.
