note re benchmark project

Hi, Erica emailed about the Benchmark project and, when I replied, she suggested posting it because it might help others clarify their understanding about what to do.  Good idea, Erica!  Here's the copy/paste:

The Benchmark Project is designed for you to clarify your Masterpiece topic for your blog audience, and for you to assess how you're progressing and what you need to take next steps.  In expository composition I assigned a paper + remix depending on how much information students had already posted.  In AP I linked to that (you can see it in the post), but I left the way you tell your story up to you.  So: explain what you've done and what you need to do next, share what you need so others can respond, and take the opportunity to reflect on your topic.  If that last part seems like something you've done before, consider (a) these are snapshots in time that reflect how your thinking deepens and changes, and (b) new readers on your blog will be seeing this information for the first time.  Hope that helps, please let me know if you have any questions.
