Students need to submit an essay on an online platform ( http://www.edmodo.com) and Turnitin. 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 essay and presentation title should be the same. Students will choose their title with the instructor. Here you can find general essay guidelines for English 2 coursework.
