Help me study for my English class. I’m stuck and don’t understand.

In lieu of a Final Exam at the end of the course, you will be addressing Reflective Essay Questions throughout the course with the exception of chapters that will be addressed through Discussion Board responses. It is important to provide concrete support for your responses as well as a personal reflection regarding the topic. All assignments must be written with an MLA heading and must be posted as an attachment. I cannot accept any assignments through Webcampus e-mail. Points will be deducted for grammar and/or spelling errors.
