Apologies to A-Day Students and Homework for All

A-Day Students:  Apologies for not getting your homework up until now.  Here's what it is:

Russian I and II

Both of you have the same assignment - write one page double spaced in your journal about anything that you would like.  For this assignment you can feel free to use any of your grammar goals that you've learned and really you should as you want to be practicing with these ideas.  Try to include one of the sayings of the week in your writing so that you can work in some conversational phrases as well.

You don't need to write any more than one page.  Focus on accuracy!

English II

There's no homework for all of you leading into our next class.  Make sure you're spending a bit of time studying and reviewing since we'll have a test next week.

AP English III

For next class you have your reading of Zora Neale Hurston's "How It Feels to Be Colored Me".  This piece is available in 50 Essays or at this link.  As you read, make links to the introductory information about the Harlem Renaissance.  Make sure, especially, that you focus on the vocabulary in this piece, the importance of jazz/blues music in the piece, and especially the idea of identity.

Read carefully and consider.  Annotate heavily.
