Several of these assignments require your involvement with a student. Before an assignment can be graded, it must be accompanied by a signed and scanned permission slip, which is submitted with the assignment or discussion. All dropbox assignments are formal in nature and must include APA citations for all works cited, including books from which students read. You also need to scan all documents that you complete by hand into your dropbox submission so that I can determine whether you completed them accurately, this determines a portion of your grade for each dropbox assignment for which this is appropriate (Miscue Analysis, Case Study, Corrective Reading Plan).
Discussions should be complete by Sunday of each assigned week. Discussion is the heart of learning for this course. Therefore, you are expected to thoroughly answer discussion questions, participating in the required discussion each week.
