"Go into the arts. I'm not kidding. The arts are not a way to make a living. They are a very human way of making life more bearable. Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven's sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”
~ Kurt Vonnegut
HOW TO ACCESS HANDOUTS...
If you are (excused) absent from my class, I will provide all resources you missed. Just check in with me. Unexcused absences, loss of handout material, etc. means you have to find and download the materials on your own. Likewise, if you just want to refer to stuff online, you can access handouts there.
Here's what you do:
- go to my locker on the bottom left side of the page - 10th grade regular English is on THIS page on the left side. 10th grade ACCELERATED folders/handouts can be found in the course locker for that class.
- find the folder for the class and marking period for the work you are looking for
- find and print handouts you need or just refer to them online (in order to stay "green" and not waste paper, I usually set my margins at .5" on all sides to conserve paper :)
