Monday, May 7 Portfolios due in my office between 10-12


Tuesday, May 8 Portfolios due in my office between 12-2...if neither of these times works with your exam schedule, let me know. You must hand deliver your portfolio to me (or get a friend to deliver it for you)...I am not responsible for portfolios left outside my office door or in the English office (& if your portfolio goes missing, that's 60% of your grade gone). When you hand in your work, you will sign a sheet so that I know I have everyone's work in my possession.  You worked hard on these papers, so I encourage you to pick them up in the summer or next fall. Just email me & we'll arrange a time.
