Dr. Sarah's Tentative Calendar for WRC 1010101

The best way to contact me outside of class is during office hours in the ASULearn need help forum. If you can't make Zoom, select the dropdown item listing only you and I to contact me privately, or the whole class to send a message to everyone! I strive to answer individual questions at least once a day, including the weekends, although I may respond within class. I prefer that you use Zoom hours as it is easier to discuss material in person.
