Professor Garcia EN 102 25 January 2019 Short Assignment 1 Annah Johnson A Knight At America’s Round Table Children gather in classrooms across the country each morning.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
