Q: Should this assignment be typed? Written in manuscript? Written in cursive?
A: I really don't care what method you choose as long as your work is legible, logical, and appropriate for the prompt.
Q: What are some things for which points will be deducted on this grade?
A: Please remember a few rules of grammar. Underline book titles. Put quotes around quotations (wow!) and smaller works such as magazine articles and song titles. Commas are not evil if you follow the rules. Always proofread and check your spelling.
Make sure that you do what the assignment says.
