    • Paper and pencil or pen (black or blue ink). 
    • Chrome book or laptop (school will provide chrome books and laptops, but you may also bring a laptop from home).
    • Novels. Some readings for the course are online; students may wish to purchase a physical copy of the reading, but this is not required.
    • Journal. Journals will be used for discussion and research in every class. Journals may be completed electronically on Google Docs or in a physical journal/spiral bound notebook. If you prefer a physical notebook, I ask that it be purely dedicated to journaling activity, and kept separate from notes for my class and other classes. For instance, your vocabulary notes for my class should not be in the journal.  This is because I may hold onto journals for a day or two at a time while they are being graded. 

    Come prepared with your class materials every day!
