A tip for next semester:
In Writing for Communication, it's really easy to repeat errors that will lose you points on multiple assignments. So, it's very necessary to learn AP style and learn from the mistakes you make with that because you'll definitely make mistakes. Grammar is also super important in this course, so pay attention to any mistakes you constantly make. Reviewing assignments you've gotten back and the mistakes you see in them will ultimately help you write better stories by the end of the class.
