However I understand this isn’t feasible for every student. So that being said if you have something you have been meaning to write either at work or personally that reflects one of the options above please feel free to do so and turn it in to me as class work and your job to satisfy a need. If this is not applicable to you on the job but recently went out to eat and had a poor experience please write a letter of complaint. You may send it out or simply turn it in for a grade in my class.
As usual if you have any questions please feel free to contact me but I will not edit/revise assignments sent to me via e-mail as that is the purpose of this class–to strengthen your ability to write without supervision. I am not an editor. I am here to teach you format content and how to elevate your writing. However if you are stuck and need assistance I am more than happy to help you. You are always more than welcome to visit me during office hours or contact me if you are confused or lost on an assignment or a section within your writing. Remember you have to be able to write grammatically sound documents without the aid of my expertise–that is the essence of this course.
In order to successfully complete this assignment you should utilize the following format information:
