How to Submit Your Work:
You’ll first create a Drive folder with the title “ENGL 211 Your Name” (instructions below) and share it with me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Your Drive folder will serve as your portfolio throughout the semester. Your papers will be graded in this private folder. DO NOT SEND YOUR PAPERS THROUGH EMAIL. Google Drive is a free service and although you can download the program to your computer, you are not required to do so and you may upload all of your papers using the Drive feature of your @alaska.edu Google services.
