    *All dates, activities, and associated grades are subject to change with testing schedules, disruptions inherent to English classes, and my discretion. Flexibility is an important skill for us all.

    *Additional daily points will come from DGP, Journal, and ACT Prep work.

    *ALL LATE WORK MUST BE TURNED IN BEFORE OCTOBER 18th at 7:45 am. That does not mean I will accept everything up to that point. Some assignments will close and lock prior to that time.

    *All reading that you choose to do outside of class will make your experience more rich and meaningful.
