TurnItIn.com Access
When I gave you the Summer Assignment, LG was scheduled for third, fourth, and fifth periods. To accommodate your schedules, they moved it to first, third, and fifth periods. Third and fifth still have the same TurnItIn.com access. First has changed. The password is now "first" instead of the password I told you at the end of the year.

Creativity, Frivolity, and Love of Books!

Why is English class important?

Language skills empower you to inspire, persuade, explain, flatter, excite, enthrall, befriend and to insult, terrify, confuse or lie. I want you to develop the best skills you can and the morals to use them for good.
