Situation: You are a FHSU student enrolled in HHP630 required to complete Essay/Blog Map 3 (EM3).

Mission: Complete the EM and post in the class WordPress site (and the Facebook Group for extra credit - don't forget the first to post this in the class WordPress site also receives extra credit).

Execution: Each student will focus their effort on completing the following simple rules. You will then post to the Swarm Learning (SL) WordPress site and respond to at least two other student posts.

Administration (and Feedback): Each student must have access to Plectica, Rationaleonline.com, the WordPress site (and it is suggested that you are a member of the SL Facebook Group). Student EMs will serve as a feedback mechanism for the instructor.

Communication: Each individual student is in control of their EM. Your EM must be posted to the WordPress site (and respond to at least two other students) by no later than the end of the current module.

Assignment Rules: Boundary to Create Within!

Rule 1. Watch and review this presentation (EM3 Assignment Instructions and How-To Video).
