    Hi Andy,

    I want you to make this bigger assignments Pages (not Posts). Here is a link that explains the difference: http://help.qwriting.qc.cuny.edu/posts-pages-widgets/

    Also, put your Rhetorical samples and your analysis together on one page.

    Maybe check out mikadroz’s page to see the organization of Pages. And remind me to check back on your page when it’s up.
