1. Do not use "you" or "your" in any writing for this course (except in quotes), unless instructed to do so.  

  2. No contractions (don't, isn't, won't, it's, etc.) are allowed on any written assignments for this class, either online, handwritten or computer printed, except in quotes or in situations where informal writing is customary, such as in e-mail communication.

  3. When referring to a person, use "who," not "that." For example, you might write about "a soldier who was killed in Iraq," but never write " a soldier that. was killed in Iraq." If you use "that" for a person, you are calling him or her a thing, and disrespecting that person.
