I don't want the sub to collect the hard copy outlines (rest are submitted to the Blogit), sooo......
I'll take outlines until 8 AM MONDAY MORNING. You're welcome.
Be very SURE all your info pertains to your physical project. Do NOT write "all about" or "how to" essays. The FOCUS must be on how all info in the paper guides, alters, or is applicable to your physical project.
Are your facts and quotes vital to your physical project? If not, you are off topic. Revise.
Monday and Tuesday we will read and discuss the Wife of Bath's Tale
