Assignments:
Instructions for video portions of the assignments: Scroll down to “Training Videos” on the course webpage. Then look under the appropriate chapter for the video. Take notes while watching the videos. For some videos fillin notes are provided (by clicking on the link and printing. For the first few I have printed these out, but after that you will need to print your own using the link.) For videos without fillin notes provided you need to do your own notes or answer a response question. If there are no instructions next to the video then take notes on the video and write the definition/description of the main concepts. Turn this in with your HW. Be sure to write the TITLE of each video above EACH of your video notes.
HW Notes: For selected sections you will be reading the text and filling out notes and answering selfcheck questions. Turn these in with the HW.
Instructions for Vocabulary: Make a list of pertinent vocabulary for EVERY section of HW that you turn in. Do this for each NEW section covered in the HW. Be sure to label what section EACH vocabulary is from. (You do not need to redo vocabulary for sections already covered on previous HW.)
General HW instructions Be sure to read the general HW instructions to avoid losing points.
