This is just a suggestion to keep you on task for this unit's requirements. While you can certainly adapt your readings and assignments to best fit your own needs, I do suggest that you follow something like this to give you ample time to finish all requirements with the time to devote to well written responses.
Good luck and let me know when you have questions or if you want to discuss something,

I am very hopeful that you will choose to use this site to interact and discuss the novel and any ideas or thoughts that you have regarding the reading. It will require you to work electronically which is an important skill to strengthen. It does mean that you will need to access a computer regularly which you can do at home or at your local library... BUT the best part would be that I could respond to your posts and we can have a "discussion" even though you are at home. This is separate and completely not credit related and is here simply for you to deepen your understanding or to have me answer any questions.
I hope to hear from you soon!
