This is your FINAL!

It is going to be a lot of work. That's why you have some time this week and all next week to work on it in class. We'll be in the computer lab Monday through Thursday next week, so if you have your outline done, you'll be able to use that time to create. If folks are off task, you will lose your work time, and you'll be doing all of this at home. That would NOT be fun!
