Homework for B-Day Students - Weekend Edition: 7 April 2016

English II

Over the weekend you should continue working on your essays and make sure that they are polished with the work that you have.  The goal right now is to make sure that you have applied the notes that I have already given you for the four paragraphs that you have.  We will be writing one more paragraph on our film - Hotel Rwanda.  Be ready to complete that drafting quickly to finish this essay assignment.

Additionally, make sure that you have studied Bessie Head's story.  That will be part of the quiz on African Literature at the end of our unit.

AP English III

For the first time in a long time you don't have any reading homework this weekend.  Your main goal now is to prepare for all of your assessments that you have going on next week.  First we have the timed essay on Monday.  You have the prompts and you have your books, so it's time to prepare for your writing.  Keep in mind that I will be checking your annotations on Monday for the whole book - make sure that they show the level of our study over the last nine weeks.

Further - it's a good time for you and your groups to work on your murals and plan.  Remember my idea that I shared with you all today about creating a mural mock-up on Google Docs.  This is a great way to make sure that you're ready to construct your murals on Friday of next week.

Enjoy your weekend!  I'm going to get through a lot of essays.
