Welcome back. Today we had a bit of a reality check which I hope will serve as a wake-up call for those of you who didn't capitalize on the time that you had off over the snow vacation. Here are your tasks to prepare for Friday.
- Submit your outline and your original research proposal in your research portfolio. I want to see your original with your outline so I can see how things have developed from the original approach to this. Remember that you should be building more specificity in your paper. What's the key point you are trying to make here?
- Read Invisible Man. You need to be to the end of Chapter Six (150). As you read, continue to develop your motif charts and vocabulary. Make sure to complete your preparation work for the Socratic Seminar based on Ms. Alley's instructions.
Be sure that you continue to read Purple Hibiscus nightly. You have your next reading goal (pages 19 to 36) to get you to next Thursday's class. In addition, remember that next class will be your last chance in class to work on your research projects. These will be presented next week as a major grade.
Everyone remember that progress reports go out next week. If you have missing quizzes or assignments make sure that you have made these up by Friday.
