2. Produce sentences with relevant and appropriate support for the thesis statement.
3. Present ideas clearly.

Homework - You are expected to complete all assignments BEFORE coming to class.
Writing Assignments - There will be six graded assignments, some written in class, others at home. If an assignment that is completed at home shows a markedly different style or skill from those written in class, the instructor reserves the right to have you write on a different topic in her office. No lat assignments will be accepted. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Behavior - Students re expected to treat the classroom environment and all members of the class with respect. Disruptive behavior is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.
