    EXPECTATIONS

    Please note this course has no real due dates. You are however expected to work through the course in a timely fashion and to complete all of the projects within one term. The assignments always take more work than you think; do not leave them until the last minute!

    • If an assignment is not handed in after a reasonable time has passed, you will receive a zero in Powerschool until you hand that assignment in.
    • Assignments are to be completed on your own, not with the help of a friend or tutor. If you are having trouble, email me and I will offer the help! You also must complete all three projects!
    • You should be citing your research in MLA or APA format. Talk to me if you don't know how to do this. You can also use the citing format I have given in the course lessons.
    • Submit assignment files as Powerpoint (ppt) or PDF. Do not submit ODF, PAGES, KEYNOTE, or others... I will make you resubmit/reupload if you do.
