Notes From Your T.A.
Some students are still confused at to how to write a thesis statement. I urge you to come to the writing workshops on Thursday. For those students who have attended, Mr. Falvo and I have noticed a great improvement in their writing.

A few students have had problems with their Google Docs and receiving tests and other documents, such as lecture notes. IF THIS HAPPENS EMAIL ME IMMEDIATELY! I will be MORE than happy to send you a copy of anything posted. Also, if you have changed the email address you use for Google Docs, please send me an email from the NEW account. I am pretty good, but I haven’t learned how to read minds — Maybe next semester. =)
