This counts as a homework grade. Follow all directions and do your best work to get full credit. Late blog assignments do not receive credit, so be sure to get this in before the start of class on Tuesday.
NOTE: If you did not finish your rewrite in class, be sure and finish it over the weekend. You may type it if you prefer, but “I didn’t have time to print it” is not an acceptable excuse for not having your paper on Tuesday.
