Homework for B-Day - 8 February 2016

English II

Tonight you have two major things to prepare as we move to Wednesday's class.  First, make sure that you are preparing yourself for the first part of your exam next class.  You're going to want to make sure that you study the literary devices portion of your review guide to prepare for your free response questions.  You'll be able to choose one of the three questions for your answer, so prepare for that.

Additionally, make sure that you are putting in some work each night on your writing project.  I'll collect them next week and we'll have time toward the end of this week to work on them in the computer lab.

AP English III

There is a lot to go over with all of you and I'll try to be as clear as I can.

  1. Motif Blogging Project - By Friday's class you should have your first two posts settled and they are documented for you in the instructions blog which is posted below.  Please send me a link to your blog once you have your posts done.  Don't forget that we are adding the vocabulary - one word per chapter.  You can include this in your analytical post for Friday.  For next week you will have your post on Chapters Three, Four, and Five due on the same day - the day that the Chapter Five reading is due.  After this we'll be all caught up and can keep using the reading schedule to set our posts.
  2. Reading Schedules - You should be to the end of Chapter Four by Friday's class.  Make sure that you keep up with your personal vocabulary and the motif charts as you are reading.
  3. Developing Your Topics - Hopefully our workshop went over what you need to do moving forward with your research paper topics.  Please come see me if you need more help.  Remember to resubmit your topic if you feel it necessary.
  4. Resubmitting Huck Finn Papers - First round of resubmissions are due for you all on Wednesday.  Second round is next week on Tuesday.  I will not accept any resubmissions past that date.  Accept the gift that this is and resubmit if you feel it necessary.  Remember that I need the original paper and rubric along with the new.
