Powerpoints & Other Goodies

Please check out the notes from our classes this semester. Not every class had notes. In addition, I’ve attached a copy of the rubric I’ll be using to grade your final piece and a copy of my “Tips for Writing” that I passed out the first day of class. Thank you for a great semester! Please remember to fill out your class evaluation when you receive the link.
