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 D2L will have passed.
