Task #1

Before we get underway with our trial, with progress reports coming out, I want to go over the grading guide for this course. I shared an editable version to your e-mails and have a link posted below for anyone to view. I want to go through the  grading guide and allow for you, the students, to have some input as to what each grade should have in the way of requirements.
