Pace and Schedule
This being an elective class all I can ask of you is for you to do your best. In order to learn about journalism you have to do journalism, meaning that you must engage in each assignment in order to gain any benefit.
If you are late with an assignment, I will contact your parents. And if by the end of the quarter you have not turned in all 5 assignments, then you will not pass the class.
