You will compose four major projects and regular forum and blog posts for this course. These projects (listed below) will focus on different ways of multimodal composing. For each major project, you will be asked to submit preliminary drafts to be discussed by the whole class, and/or by me. You should plan to revise these assignments extensively before the due date. There are no rewrites or revisions after work is graded.

You must complete all assignments and requirements in order to pass this course. Your final grade includes the following requirements:
