ResourcesThere are two major reseaources. Are.na for collecting sources, and On Writing Well, a great book about writing. Both are linked under resources.
Grading“Participation” is a big part of this class. I put participation in quotes because that doesn't mean you have to be the most demonstrative person in class. There will be lots of avenues to participate if you are an introvert. Attendance is a great first step to ensuring a passing grade.
AttendanceMiss 4 classes and you will fail. You've all taken classes before so you all know the drill, if you “skip” three classes and then have to miss a 4th class because you have a legitimate excuse, you still fail. Best way to understand this is to just come to class and not make it an issue.
