The Be-Verb essay is due Monday, October 19. Some students had to redo the introduction; please attach the new introduction to the top of the essay I told you to keep Thursday. Give everything to me Monday, October 19.
Some students gave me their scenes, many didn't. Please give me your scripts and I will post a link for you to post them.
