AP Lit 4G: Time to Work

Today, time to work.  

I'm going to make a point of providing a couple of class periods in a row each quarter for time to get caught up, ask for help, workshop with peers and otherwise freestyle your day.

Today was the first of those days this week.

You've quite a collection of due dates on the horizon, including today.

Remember that they are all available on the AP Lit Major Due Dates schedule.
