Your writing should reflect your synthesis of ideas based on prior knowledge, newly acquired information, and appropriate writing skills. Scoring of your work in written communication is based on proper use of grammar, spelling and how clearly you express your thoughts and reasoning in your writing.
Feel free to consult with your faculty member as you work on this project.
