A second, very important deadline is fast approaching. From the Handout on Essay Writing:
Deadline #2. Outline and tentative bibliography: due March 9, 2009. Students missing this deadline will have two letter grades subtracted from their final grade for the project. (Example, a “B” essay received on the final class from a student who fails to meet deadline #2 will receive a “D”).
Also, for anyone who finds him/herself not able to fulfill the requirements of the course, I believe the deadline to withdraw from a course is sometime this week.
