Book Fair!

Today (8/15/13) and tomorrow (8/16/13), we will be taking the Gates-Maginitie Diagnostic Test.  It does not count towards your class grade.  Its purpose is to assess your reading level, so I can help you to become better readers and writers.  If you are absent on either of those days, please see me to arrange a makeup date.

Television Show Reviews

To help you with your essay that is due on Friday, 3/22. I have posted two recent, well-written, television reviews from The Hollywood Reporter.  Both reviews can be found on the handouts pages of this website.

Typing Format in Word 2010

If you are using Microsoft Word 2010 and you're confused about the directions for Standard Academic Formatting, here's what to do:

1. Open Word.

2. Click on the tab at the top that says, "home."

3. The third box from the left says, "paragraph."  In its lower right corner, there's a tiny box with a tiny arrow in it.  Click on that.

4. A box titled "paragraph" should appear.

5.  Follow the instructions on "typing format cheat sheet."

Good luck!  If you have any other issues, feel free to e-mail me at [email protected]
