- The Daily Reader will be supplied up to 1 day before class. I live in the UK, and so if you enrol in a "same day" class, the Daily Reader will be emailed when UK morning begins.
- You may print the Daily Reader if you wish, however this is not required as the article will be displayed on the screen as a PowerPoint in our Outschool classroom.
