What is due for Lesson 6?

This lesson will take us one week to complete. Please refer to the calendar in Canvas for specific time frames and due dates. There are a number of required activities in this lesson, as outlined below. Specific directions can be found within the lesson.

    • Click on "Extensions."
    • Make sure all extensions have a check mark placed next to them.
