Course 1A what we will do. Free EBook by Mansfield required

Hi, Everyone.

We will mostly do the 4 essays and homework.

It is a good idea to email me your best draft for my comments and extra homework credit
at least 3 days before the due date.

As you get more comfortable with doing the work, you can stop sending early drafts.

I do cross out your lowest grade, and the homework is almost a free A, because
all you have to do is to DO it.

by Stephen Mansfield  This is the required book.
