Welcome back to school!

It’s a new school year and I honestly haven’t updated all the classes yet, so if you’ve been downloading all kinds of fun stuff from this site, you might have to get an updated copy when we use it.

In the meantime, I wanted to give a little preview of what to expect this year:

On Writing and its rules

In the last few weeks, I’ve received Extra Credit write-ups that show me that we need to talk again about standards of turning in work.

Though “Mr. Walberg’s 10 Rules for Writing” is written in a silly way, the rules are real and I expect you to stick to them unless it does not apply– for instance, if you are writing about your trip to the Dole Institute of Politics, then you can obviously use first and second person pronouns.

Other things like proofreading, double-spacing, avoiding contractions, using a serious font, etc– those are rules you should stick to for the rest of your academic career.

I hope a little refresher helps!
