Class #18- October 26th, 2017
Introduction- We began with a 7 minute writing exercise on something pressing in our
lives
Reminders:
1. Check page 7 of the syllabus for what to do if you are absent and how to make the
professor aware of such absences.
2. Class absence policy is only enforced for unexcused absences
Presentation on “Frosting the Cake” from Nov. 14th was done in class as well as the “FP
transmittal cover letter” from Nov. 16th
- These are for later in the semester because we are not supposed to be able to do
these until later in the semester
- Right now we should just be focusing on researching and writing

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!
