Today since we had our quiz on Russian literature we have no official homework to complete. However, I have given you your final project for our Russian literature unit, and it would be a good idea to start working on your project tonight. Next class we'll spend some time in the library working on these projects - make sure that the time in the library is useful by starting tonight. Remember you have to select one of the four projects to complete. Consider what you think will give you your strongest work. Your projects are due on October 8th.
Tonight for homework I want you to complete the reinforcement exercises from my Russian grammar textbook. You're completing exercises 51, 52, 53, and 54. For most of these you need to review your notes on gender and possessive pronouns. Remember to select the appropriate pronoun based on the gender of the item. We'll continue working on this and phonetics for Friday's class.
Make sure that with the homework that you write out all of your answers and sentences. Don't just fill in the blank or write the word - writing the whole sentence will help you with your handwriting and your grammar knowledge.
Tonight you'll continue working on questions and answers as you work through exercise one in chapter four. There are fifteen questions there. I want you to select ten and then complete the example where you give answers to the questions. Make sure that you follow the model. Use this as a chance to check in with verbs and to practice your knowledge of the one-stem verb system in Russian. This is also a good chance for you to review your intonation patterns as we'll be doing some speaking related to questions and answers next class.
