"Everybody's youth is a dream, a form of chemical madness."
-F. Scott Fitzgerald

ENG 4C1
We're practicing writing fluidly, with fully developed ideas, formatted and presented well. We're practising reading for extended periods, using helpful reading strategies. We're analysing how media works were put together, and their explicit and implicit messages.

Extensions: Extensions for 24, 48 or 72 hours may be granted if an email is sent prior to deadline, outlining reasons the extension is needed, and providing evidence the assignment has been started. Extended assignments will need to be emailed directly as the window for submission to Turn It In will have passed.

Before submitting any written work to me through www.turnitin.com, ensure you've formatted it according to one of my required formats, you have used Spell Check, and copied and pasted it into all three of these to find obvious errors:

http://www.grammarcheck.net/editor/ (choose "Free Check")

http://www.grammarbase.com/

http://writing.garretson.info/PunctuationChecker

Robot editors sure aren't perfect, but they are going to help you find some of the most obvious of your errors. Errors which it would be best I didn't see you making.
