  1. Hi Kelly,

    Sent an email to you school acct, but you may not be checking. Can you approve me on your iTunes Univ Course “Paperless Classroom”?

    Three, count ’em, THREE AP English Lit sections next year and I’ve got to move some of the grading into EdModo.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated,

    • Brad, I have found that iTunes U will only allow me to have 50 students so I have moved all the material (and more) to this site. Hope the information helps! I plan to add more throughout the summer. I think you will find that Edmodo will help to lighten your grading load in the upcoming year! Good luck!

      • Thanks, Kelly,

        Your blog has some helpful hints for the newbie.

        By the way, in your castles quiz, here’s a critical thinking question:

        Why do the spiral stairs in a castle ALWAYS spiral up in a counter-clockwise fashion and never the other way? (Hint: Most people are right-handed!)
