How To Submit A Paper
A major factor to being successful in a writing class is feedback on your papers. Please examine the following options for submission and retrieval of your work. If you do not choose one of these you will not get your papers or tests back. That may lead to a poor grade, as seeing your mistakes will help you become a better writer. Also, for every work except for the final paper, I offer you an opportunity to revise for a better grade. Take advantage that option.
For my on-campus courses, you will hand your work to me on the assigned day in class. If for some reason you are unable to do that particular option, you must send your work to me at email@example.com For my on-campus courses, these are your ONLY options.
For my online courses, you have several types of assignments and you have three primary ways to get your work to me.
How To Retrieve Your Paper or Test By Hand: YOU MAY NOT TAKE ANYTHING OUT OF ANY MAILBOX. Retrieve your paper (only if you submitted a hardcopy) or test from my office during my office hours (posted on the main web site page) or from the plastic tray outside my door if I have instructed you to do so. If you want me to explain the marks on your work, come by during my office hour. IT IS ILLEGAL TO TAKE OR READ ANYONE ELSE'S PAPER.
And now a word of device: If you have some issue that is preventing you from submitting your work on time, you're far more likely to receive a sympathetic ear and a helpful suggestion if you contact me BEFORE the due date. If you contact me AFTER the due date, I might be inclined to feel that the story you tell, true or not, is more of an excuse for lack of planning on your part. As always, take care of the situation before it becomes a major problem.
