reminder…

The end of the quarter is approaching. To that end, please be sure to double check your edline against your turnitin.com account to make sure that you have turned in all required assignments electronically. Avoid the penalty. If you find and fix a discrepancy, you must alert me by email so that I know to go back and change your grade.

A thinly veiled threat

Please, please stop writing “based off of” in your papers. It is “based on.” Based on!

Look here

“You can build a structure around a center, but bases go on the bottom of things, so you can’t base something around something else. Similarly, you can build something off of a starting point, but you can’t base anything off of anything. Something is always based on something else.”

And here

Seriously, stop the insanity. And if that’s not enough, I’m making it a deduction from here on out. Arrgh.
