A lot of people have asked me this, so I figured I’d ask on the blog to make sure.  For tomorrow’s assignment, we are only doing the pre-writing activities, not a draft of our paper, correct?  In my notes I wrote “You are not writing a paper about this subject.  Jeff wants us to generate a document and do the pre-writing exercises.”  I just want to make sure I’m on the right path, and am not telling people to do the assignment wrong.

On another note, if we are only doing the pre-writing assignment… how many resources should we have mapped out in the “collection” exercise?   Is there a certain length we should try to accomplish in our pre-writing document?  Thanks for any help in advance.
