Reading ExpectationsWe will be reading texts, sometimes as a class but often you will be asked to read independently. It is imperative that you are prepared to commit to reading the texts assigned in the class. You may not love every text; there may be texts you dont like. However, you are still required to complete the reading tasks. You should come to class every day prepared to read independently.
