    When you first posted it, this was a preliminary assignment. It passed then, but now it’s far behind where it should be, PinkHeart.

    Use this White Paper to take Notes and record your impressions of your sources AS YOU READ THEM, the best way to begin converting your research material into language of your own you can export to your short arguments when it’s time to draft them. You don’t appear to have updated your preliminary notes since you first posted them.

    This post will be regraded from time to time, or on your specific request.
