Nick’s Book Presentation

Midterm- You can choose to rewrite your midterm essay as a writing assignment for a higher grade.  It should be structured the same as an assigned writing essay, with references and proper structure and grammar.  The writing center is a good resource but feel free to contact Jessi if you want help.  Due no later than 3/30, turn in printed copy to Jessi in class.  The grade improvement will be taken into account when calculating the final grades.  It will not negatively affect your grade but can only improve it.  Good luck!
