    Reading is to the mind, what exercise is to the body. - Joseph Addison  
    Students typically have English homework nightly, and I give both verbal and written instructions in class. I also provide students with a reading calendar for every novel. Large or complex assignments are posted on schoology.com. Students were given the login password the first week of class.
