Global Literature

Mrs. Rollins' Periods 3, 5, 6 and 7

Welcome to our online classroom!

 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.

Character Fact Sheet/Family Tree is due Wednesday, 3/12 for period 6 (at the end of the period), Thursday, 3/13 for periods 5 and 7 (at the beginning of the period), Friday, 3/14 for period 3 (at the beginning of the period)

WRITING HELP

I am available for extra help after school Monday-Thursday until 3 PM, or by appointment. It's always a good idea to tell me if you plan to come because I might have a meeting to attend.

Mrs. Hughes is the writing tutor. Contact her to set up an appointment at phughes@masconomet.org or to hughes.patty0@gmail.com. You can also catch her in her office which is across from room 220 (on the second floor).
