Hello ENG I Honors, ENG II and ENG II Honors students.
Please read this page closely to be certain you are reading the information for your specific class. I will update this page regularly to keep you up-to-date with deadlines and assignments, and to share useful information that will help you become the most successful student you can be.
CLASSROOM DONATIONS: 'Tis the season! The sneezing and sniffling has begun. If you have the means to help out with the need for tissues in my classroom, I would greatly appreciate your tissue donation. Please send a box in with your student to help us make him/her and their classmates more comfortable as they battle allergies and germs. Thank you in advance!
A sample MLA formatted paper is available to you through the following link on the VCS Media Center's page. This sample paper was provided by Lake Sumter State College. Please review this prior to submitting any essays. MLA format is a requirement.
Another wonderful writing resource is the Purdue Online Writing Lab, also known as the Purdue OWL. I will refer to this site often in class. Click here to access the site.
