A few reminders we went over in class today:

*Questions on your quiz must be from the presentation, not details from the story that were not covered.
*Consider using a handout to help the class keep track of the information in your presentation.
*I can make copies for you if you drop off materials BEFORE FIRST PERIOD.
*If someone is absent tomorrow and your group is picked, you must be prepared to go on without them!
*Beware of SparkNotes!
