Original Work

All work should be the author's own. Review information on citing and using resources. Review "Citing Resources." The best way to demonstrate that your work is original is thorough completion of all steps in the writing process.


Students should be in class for all sessions promptly and should use class-time constructively to complete course assignments. All work is to be submitted on due dates (without make-up). Students missing more than four class hours will receive a C in the course only if they can demonstrate they have completed all work and that the work demonstrates average performance. A grade for completion of the course will be based upon evaluation of a final portfolio containing all required stages in the writing process and an acceptable final document.

Special Needs

Students should document in writing during the first two days of class any special needs likely to interfere with their completion of course work.
