Course Calendar

Following you will find the course calendar. This calendar is a rough representation of what we will be covering in English I. Of course, we do MUCH more than you see on this calendar, but this will give you a general idea of what's happening in A210! If you have questions concerning this calendar, please contact Ms. Ragon directly. The calendar is subject to change at the teacher's discretion. Plans often change, and I will try to update this calendar on a regular basis.
