8 Advice to do well in this class Your own opinion is the most valuable thing – express it! Take initiative; create extra credit opportunities if you need to. Every writing opportunity is not about the story; it is about your critical reflection and analysis of the action situation. Do not wait for minute instructions; re-read the syllabus if in doubt. Do not plead ignorance! (What if I were your boss?)
