    2019-2020 Supplies
    1.  One 3-ring binder (1-inch) for Ac Lit class only.  Since there is no textbook
         for this class, your binder, in addition to being a tool to organize class
         materials, class work, and notes, will become your textbook for the
         class.  It is important, therefore, that you have a separate binder just for Ac Lit
    2.  Five divider tabs (for your binder)
    3.  Loose-leaf notebook paper (about 25 sheets) to put in binder 
    4.  A supply of pencils, 3-4 highlighters of various colors, 3-4 pens of various colors
    5.  Reading zone book for daily, independent reading 
    Think before you speak.  Read before you think.
                                                                         ~ Fran Lebowitz

    To non-critical readers, many texts offer the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. 
    To the critical reader, any single text provides but one portrayal of the facts, one individual's "take" on the subject.

                                                                     ~ Dan Kurland
    A good reason for marking favorite passages in books is that this practice enables you to remember more easily the significant sayings, to refer to them quickly, and then in later years, it is like visiting a forest where you once blazed a trail. You have the pleasure of going over the old ground, and recalling both the intellectual scenery and your own earlier self.

    The difference between the almost right word and the right word is really a large matter – it’s the difference between the lightning bug and the lightning.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                   ~ 1888 Letter from Mark Twain to George Bainton




                             Outside of a dog, a book is man's best friend.  Inside of a dog, it's too dark to read.                                                                                                                                                                                             ~ Groucho Marx                                                                                                                                                                                                                     dog
