AssignmentsHas anyone else submitted assignments and find it takes a long time for them to be accepted and published?
Don't get me wrong. I love that I can continue to teach even though I am not still in the classroom, and I appreciate the chance to share and earn at the same time. It's just that two weeks have gone by since my submission was made. Before I spend a lot more time and effort, I'd like to know if my efforts are in the right direction. I do hope that e-notes continues its role in a student's education. It's great that a student can get two or three different outlooks by professionals on the same work. That lets them know that there is not only one right answer, that it is the freedom thought whose variety of insights makes a work truly universal.
I'm with #2: I'm happy finding a second outlet where I can use what I've learned for teaching, to learn and write and hopefully teach, and earn money while I'm doing it. This is paradise. If something happens to take a little longer than I'd like, I don't care. My only worry is that enotes continues to get enough subscriptions to keep this going! I feel like a con man getting away with a big score!
I just submitted my first one yesterday, so that's the extent of my experience with getting approval. However, I'm glad that the enotes editors take time to evaluate the submissions. Just think about it: When teachers come to enotes for lesson resources, they expect to find to be high-quality, effective materials. I want the editors to make sure that the submitted assignments are high-quality material.
The have been short handed, but Scott told me earlier that they have hired more editors. The wait is not a problem for me, but I haven’t received a lot of feedback so if something if an assignment submission is not accepted, I’m not always sure if they eventually didn’t need it, if there were elements missing, or etc.
Yes, I did hear from Scott. He is always so helpful. It sounds like they've been short-handed in the assignments department. Thanks.
Have you tried emailing Scott or Brandi or Alex at enotes? I'm sure they wouldn't mind. They've always been great to me.
