Assignment #1

June 27, 2007

Read my About Mrs. Mullan page and then comment, telling me a little about you.  If you can’t think of anything, get started by telling me how many people are in your family, what pets you have, and your favorite things to do.  Why did you choose this elective class?  How often do you read the newspaper?  What is your favorite part of the newspaper?  What is your favorite kind of writing? 

There is so much for us to learn about each other — get started!
