English 10 Language of Literature

You have just stepped through the front door of our Virtual Classroom away from room A306.  Here you will find important information about weekly classwork and homework assignments.  If you are ever absent from school, you can find out what you have missed right here, and you can get all of your handouts that you've misplaced or never received under the Forms and Docs on the left.  We will have a semi-paperless class this year, meaning that you will get many of your assignments online in order to complete at home before sending them back to me via email and/or Google Docs!
