The Pearl papers on Kino/Juana

As of today, 2/25 at 12:30 p.m., I have received only 4 papers. I have 24 freshmen students, so this works out to about 18% of students have turned in their work. If you are one of the 20 students who has not turned in a paper, this is a reminder. Papers lose 10% for each day they are late and I will only accept them until this Friday at 2 p.m.

Welcome Freshmen!

Although I have had a classroom website for two years now, I have only used it on a limited basis for my freshmen. I would like to incorporate its use more in the final months of this school year and use it extensively next year. Freshmen should look to this website and Lesniak English for homework assignments, copies of essay topics, resources, games to improve your English skills and as a forum to extend classroom discussions. The format has worked well with my juniors and I see no reason why it shouldn't work as well with my freshmen.
