Daily Agenda: Friday, February 17

Today we reviewed the pre-quiz along with parts of speech fundamentals.

We will have a grammar quiz on March 1.  The pre-quiz is meant to be 'over-preparation.'

The best way to study is to review the paper copies of the grammar handouts, which are all linked here for quick reference, along with your notes from today's pre-quiz.

Please organize the pre-quiz and other grammar assignments in a grammar folder in your Google drive English folder.

Have a wonderful vacation.
