After reading the syllabus, please submit your signature, as well as contact/other relevant information, via the following Google document.
Homework Assignment #1: Fill out the Google document and sign up for the Turnitin.com section by the beginning of class on Wednesday, January 29th. You must do both in order to be in the class, but you can only get the points for signing up if you beat that due date.
Some other key notes:
+ With very few exceptions, all work in this class will be submitted to Turnitin.com - even work that you've already posted publicly here. Your Turnitin.com class ID is 7593361, and your enrollment password is D101D101.
+ If you're unfamiliar with posting - either technique-wise or etiquette-wise - check this thread for some fantastic examples.
+ If you don't know how to leave a post on these blogs (how to log in, etc.), click "Continue Reading..." at the bottom of this thread.
+ Once we begin submitting assignments to Turnitin.com, please remember to upload your documents in a Turnitin-approved format (.doc, .docx, .rtf). Turnitin will not accept OpenOffice documents, although I can open them on the school's computer if you need to submit via e-mail. Please avoid submitting work to Turnitin via copy-and-paste; doing so strips your assignment of MLA formatting, paragraph breaks, and so on.
Also, when submitting work in this class via Turnitin (no headers necessary on blog posts), your MLA-formatted header will always appear in the upper left corner of your page. It looks exactly like this:
First Name Last Name
SFHP - Period #
27 January 2014
Notice that you do not use an honorific (Mr.) with my name; that there's a space before and after the dash in the third line; that you'll fill in your period number yourself; and that the due date (which you now use in your headers) is written in a Day Month Year format. (I do not care whether the header is single- or double-spaced, but proper placement is important.)
