Happy New Year! (and new semester)

January2

Welcome back!

Just a reminder to both American Literature students and AP Language students that pre-course reading and the assigned dialectical journal will be due before you know it, so be sure you are reading!

American Lit students should be reading The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien

AP Lang students should be reading In Cold Blood by Capote AND Freakonomics by Dubner & Levitt

Expectations for completing and turning in the dialectical journal will be reviewed during the first week of class.
