Mrs. Rollins' Periods 2, 3, 6 and 7

Welcome to our online classroom!

"That's the thing about books. They let you travel without moving your feet."

--Jhumpa Lahiri, The Namesake

 

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.

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.

Masco is in the process of hiring a new writing tutor (as our beloved Mrs. Hughes retired in June). I'll be sure to let you know as soon as we have one!  FYI, his/her office will be located across from room 220 (on the second floor) and next door to the Morning Update studio.
