Lectures take place every Monday from 9-12 . Students may opt to submit homework every other week on an online platform ( http://www.edmodo.com). Before you login you need to make an account using the latest class code (you need to ask the instructor).
When using the Platform, please note that you can scroll down the timeline/discussion board on Edmodo to find the assignment submission box (where you are supposed to submit your work). Alternatively, you can look for the to-do-tasks in the calendar (a blue box with number 30 on it).
The quizzes aim to test your knowledge of the content covered in class (You can find all the videos in Edmodo). Kindly note that you should not try to click on the quiz (and try it out) before you are READY to take the test. This is because you can open it only ONCE and it is timed.
Assignment questions or titles are optional and they are updated every other week. Here you can find general essay guidelines for English 2 coursework.
