A collection of posts related to reading. Ahhhhh, reading. The word alone makes me happy. Reading reading reading. Booky booky books. Is there anything better than time spent with your nose buried in a book? I think not.

    This outline follows my current course packet, so students: Check your packet index to find more information about each skill. I won't post page #s here because they change every semester. Revisions, revisions!

    And yes, students, I know you're laughing because this is one more way for me to organize information. Which is one of my favorite things to do. Go ahead and laugh, you know this is helpful.
