Hi Christina,

Thank you so much! I'm having trouble finding the right Beowulf translation. Is it the one edited by Daniel Donoghue? Norton/Seamus Heaney ISBN 0393975800

Good morning! Thank you for this book list. When the notes say “packet” does that mean the reading material will be supplied by Mr. Bleeker/LCC?

Yes, exactly!

If we get things enough in advance, we will print "packet" material for all students. (This is true for all the classes.) Occasionally teachers might send a document via email for students to print.

*Unless otherwise directed, any material that is sent electronically ought to be printed for reading (not read on the screen) and brought to class for reference. Hopefully the 1/2" - 1" binder will make this easy! :)
