    1. Student: For our typed out paper should we include the court hearing document or just title our paper
      Mrs. Metcalf: You only need to title your paper.

    2. Student: During the trial are we allowed to use notecards as a script or do we have to memorize our content
      Mrs. Metcalf: No, if you have a hard time remembering, your attorney can rephrase and stress points that can trigger your memory. If that doesn't work, the attorney can enter a document as evidence, such as a deposition (the witness's written account of the events).

    3. Student: s this thesis okay? The avoidable shooting shooting at Kent State triggered multiplication negative consequences.
      Mrs. Metcalf: Yes, because your thesis is stating that the shooting was "avoidable" which some may disagree, although innocent (non protesters) students were the victims.

    4. Student: When i do my subtitle, should I keep it centerd? Also, if my title is underlined, would i underline the subtitle too?
      Mrs. Metcalf: You can center the subtitle below the title. The subtitle is not underlines.

    5. Student: I noticed that the due date for our Antigone essay was changed to saturday the 8th. Does that mean it needs to be sent in by saturday night at 11:59 pm?
      Mrs. Metcalf: Yes.

    6. Student: I just submitted the wrong document while trying to turn in my assignment. Am I allowed to turn the right one in?
      Mrs. Metcalf: Yes, your paper is not due until later tonight. I will delete the previous submission.

    7. Student: f our paper for Explaining Death to a 5 year old is less than 2 pages of content, do we need page numbers for the entire paper? Thank you for taking the time to read.
      Mrs. Metcalf: No.

    8. Student: For the Antigone Essay, how do we cite the Antigone handout that you gave us in class in the reference page? Also, do you want us to turn the essay in online or print it out?
      Mrs. Metcalf: Please review the "Research and Documentation" link provided. If you do not find the answer to your question about citing the handout, please let me know if you are using APA or MLA and I will assist you. You are to turn the paper in online on the classroom website.

    9. Student: If I am emailing the Pecha Kucha assignment what is the time it needs to be turned in by tomorrow?
      Mrs. Metcalf: You can upload it to www.wetransfer.com. I have included an announcement concerning how to do this under "Courses." Please review that information. Usually email will not let you send large files such as your presentation. The assignment is due Tuesday before midnight.

    10. Student: Hi Mrs. Metcalf, I have been working on my Pecha Kucha assignment but google slides does not seem to have an option for embedding audio to the presentation. I asked several friends if they knew how to, but they were equally confused. Is there a work around for this, would you like us to bring in a separate audio, or otherwise speak during our presentation?
      Mrs. Metcalf: You will need to use Microsoft PowerPoint not Google Slides.

    11. Student: Hi Mrs. Metcalf, is our Pecha Kucha presentation due tonight (Monday) or tomorrow night before midnight? Thanks.
      Mrs. Metcalf: The assignment is due on Tuesday.

    12. Student: RE: Kent State Paper. When is this due? Thank you.
      Mrs. Metcalf: The due date has not been given yet. I will post a due date once all the material has been taught that is necessary for the completion of the assignment.

    13. Student: Are we allowed using I in this essay? I wasn’t sure because it is a child’s dialogue? Thank you
      Mrs. Metcalf: The best writing, even written in first person, can avoid the use of the pronoun “I”. In dialogue it is acceptable to add to characterization. As the writer, though, avoid its use.

    14. Student: For the college classes pacha kucha the classes who don’t have you till Wednesday is that when theirs is due or is everyone’s due Tuesday? There’s a confusion.
      Mrs. Metcalf: The due date posted is the due date for the assignment whether it is on the day the class meets or not. Students may drop off the jump drive with their name on it or stop by before or after school and I'll copy the assignment and return the jump drive immediately.

    15. Student: Do we have to complete the work on EGCC’s website along with our in school work? I was uncertain because it was not mentioned in class. Thank you.
      Mrs. Metcalf: No, you will follow the directions given in class and the assignments posted on this classroom website, as before.

    16. Student: I'm having trouble logging into the school laptop. What do I do?
      Mrs. Metcalf: You could try one or all of these options. 1. Be sure you are typing your username and password correctly, including capitalization. 2. Use the generic username and password. Ask a peer if they know it; I am unsure of it. 3. Go to the public library to use their computer. Be sure to bring a jump drive to save your work.
