Call In Your Essay

CALL IN YOUR ESSAY:

Your assignment: 
  • Call and read your Extreme Sports Essay to my voice mail. 
  • The number to call is 858-633-6726. I promise I will not answer it. The call will go straight to voicemail and you can leave your message. 
  • If you do NOT hear my voice on the outgoing message then you called the wrong number. 
Tips:
  • You can use the phone in our classroom if you need to. 
  • If you make a mistake keep going. (Do not quit and call back, just keep going.)
  • Practice before you call.
