ENGL-2600 Class Calendar

Fall 2017

 

Below you will find a rough outline of when reading assignments and writing assignments are due.  For clarification see your syllabus or ask me.  Reading assignments must be done before the class they are assigned and Journals must be completed before class and pertain to the readings under discussion for that day.  Occasionally, assignments may be amended, these will be announced before the assignment is due.  If you miss class, contact some other member of the class to check on the status of your assignments.
