English 1A Tentative Schedule: Wednesday

 

 

Below is my take on the semester as of today. Major plans are given, as are major dates, but the schedule is skeletal rather than exhaustive. Not all due dates are listed below, nor are all class plans. Consistently attending class is the best way to ensure that you are caught up at all times. I reserve the right to alter the schedule if/as needed.
