Basic Instructions

  • Quotations may only be used for definitions and must be cited correctly. Failing to give credit for what you have written can result in a series of penalties that are described in the syllabus.
  • Copying the work of other students will result in a grade of 0 and may result in failing the course. There is no assignment that is worth copying from another student.
  • Use only high quality sources such as government agencies, the World Health Organization (WHO), university websites, journal articles, and other sources I specifically recommend. Organizations for which you provide links on the community and tools pages on your website are good sources.
  • Write for an 8th grade audience. People who visit your website may not have finished high school or gotten college educations. Translating technical information to common language is a real challenge I want you to face as part of your training for work in health promotion.
