Homework for B-Day - 14 November 2016

It's kinda strange that we have a full week ahead of us.  Is anyone else feeling that?

English II

Today we began our reading of our next major book, Persepolis by Marjane Satrapi.  We'll continue reading daily and you will have some reading at home to do once we get more comfortable with the book.  For tonight, your homework is to complete your permission slip for Ms. McCormick.  Have your parent sign it and bring it back to us.

AP English III

There are several things on the horizon that you need to start to prepare for.  Here they are in order of nearest to latest.  First, there's your unit test on The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn on Friday.  After today's class you have a good understanding of what will be on the test.  You have identifications, quote explanations, short answers and rhetorical analysis.  After Wednesday's class you should be feeling much stronger with completing the rhetorical analysis process.

Next week we have our websites.  As a group you should be finishing your synthesis assignment, editing each other's rhetorical analyses, and putting final touches on your sites.  Make sure to check the mock-up and account for all of the moving parts.  Your presentations will be on Tuesday.  In advance, make sure to share your websites with me (daniel_miller (at) dpsnc (dot) net) and with Ms. McCormick (samanthagmcc (at) gmail (dot) com).  Let us know if you need help with your sites.

Lastly, don't forget about Ms. McCormick's form.  Get it signed and bring it back.
