Mrs. Rollins' Periods 2, 3, 6 and 7
Welcome to our class website! Here we can continue the conversations we start in class and begin new ones. Ask questions about what we're reading, share your own interesting discoveries, respond to classmates' comments and posts, and add relevant resources and links from which your peers might benefit. Contribute to our discussions by sharing your thoughts and knowledge!!
Always remember that this is a place for the scholarly exchange of ideas, so whatever you post should be related ONLY to academic concerns of our class. Additionally, your writing should be as thoughtful, coherent, organized, and creative as it is when you write formally, and should be mostly free from errors.
