From the Instructor:
Students may complete the coursework each week on their own schedules. However, there are weekly deadlines. No in-person conferences or meetings are required. Students may telecommute from any location with internet access. Service Learning option is available for Fall term. The text is co-authored by the instructor, using plain English and an abundance of examples. Students must be able to read and understand the textbook. Grades are based on a steady flow of equal-value writing assignments and quizzes. The instructor places a high value on timely completion of work. Writing assignments must be original and created for class purposes. However, students are encouraged to create professional documents that they may use in their workplace, volunteer jobs, or personal lives. Plagiarism on any assignment results in a zero for that assignment.
