Homework for B-Day Students: 19 October 2015

AP English III

Today Ms. Ginocchio gave you your reading schedules which will take you through the rest of The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, your next deadline to meet is Wednesday of next week.  Be sure that you are pacing yourself appropriately and working to meet your next deadline.  It was clear that some of you hadn't read, now you are behind.

Remember as you read that you are expected to regularly annotate the text - you may use post-it notes, your notebook, or notes in the margins.  In addition, you should be keeping up with both your front and back cover as you work through the text and as we are discussing ideas in class.

Lastly, continue to look for new vocabulary - you'll have a set of vocabulary cards coming soon after the new quarter starts.  Ms. Ginocchio and I are working hard to get your papers and tests graded before the end of the quarter - these assignments will be put on this quarter.

English II

For tonight you have the next two chapters of Persepolis to read.  As you read, continue to think about the main characters - the Satrapi family - mark what you think is important as you read and also look for vocabulary that is new or unfamiliar to you.  We'll be discussing these moments in the text next class and looking at some of the significant elements of this genre as well.

Don't forget that if you are missing a project or your quiz that you have only until Thursday to make those assignments up.
