No assignment will be accepted more than five days late, with increasing deductions for each day. Drafts must also be brought to class as hard copy when specified.To encourage ongoing revision, you will be provided an opportunity at the end of the semester to resubmit a final draft for a potentially (though not guaranteed) higher score.Strong engagement involves listening attentively with an open mind, participating thoughtfully and respectfully, asking for and offering help when needed, and challenging yourself to grow as a writer.
On most weeks you will be asked to participate in an online blog or discussion forum.
These informal entries will be scored on the depth of your critical thinking in response to the assignment and not on the quality of your writing.
