Hey Lauren, under "exercise files" did you find the zip file with all the lessons?  While I do not personally manage the page, I'll certainly let the people who do make sure the files are there if they are not.

The assignment "Become a Rock Star" is not available for download.  The downloadable file is the same set of questions for the designated books that have been posted for the last 3-4 lessons. Please load the article "Become a Rock Star".  Thank you
