Welcome Everyone!

 

I've attached the course reading schedule below with so that you can click on the links to the articles that are online.

More importantly, I've put PDFs of the articles that are not available online here in a folder. (There's one extra, an article by Jabari Mahiri that you might enjoy if you're into techy literacy stuff.)  

 

Here's the folder for the Tic Tac Toe for your YA books.  Do a different Tac Tac Toe direction for each book.
