Prepare for your Appointment:
- Bring all handouts, instructions, class notes, etc., to your appointment so you can clearly and completely discuss the assignment with your Communication Coach. You will need your instructor's email address.
- The AMuLit Center has 12 computers available for your use. Bring USB drives for saving your work.
- If you need help documenting your references, bring to the appointment your sources or accurate accounts of reference materials, including page numbers from which you have taken information. Printing out the copyright page of a book or the opening page of a website is often helpful.
