Course Directions:

There will be one or two products to turn in for each section of this course- 10 total. Please submit all of these at once in the Completed Assignments Dropbox. Make sure your name, e-mail address, and course number are placed clearly at the top of each document submitted. For each digital tool, the easiest way for me to view your work is to include the link in a document, either within the lesson plan, or in a separate document.
