New assignments will be posted every Tuesday and the discussion will continue through Monday. Every Tuesday the previous week’s discussion thread will close and the discussion will move to the new assignment. I will be monitoring the discussion throughout the week and adding comments and instruction as we go. I encourage you to comment and ask for clarification as well.   ~ Wendy
