'Gabe's Hot Tips'

  • Do your assignments carefully to receive the full credit.
  • Explore all the exercises and activities in this course, as we go through each chapter, even if they are not formally assigned.
  • Take time to enjoy reading the textbook.
  • Check the class Calendar section often for important dates and assignment due dates.
  • Stay on track with all assignment and reading deadlines.
  • Be part of the learning community by responding thoughtfully when writing emails and posting to the Discussion Board.
  • Use proper 'Netiquette'.
  • Keep a notebook or computer folder and put your Journal entries in it so you can reflect back on your work. Keep copies of all the work you turn in to your instructor.
  • Remember to always print out your Weekly Assignment lesson page each week and check off the lessons as you complete and email them to your instructor. This will help you to stay on track and not fall behind. Once behind, it's hard to catch up!
  • When emailing your instructor your assignments, if you have been asked to put specific words in the subject line of the email, make sure you follow those instructions to receive the proper credit for your work.
  • Make sure that you put your name somewhere on every email!
