Catch 22

Alright here we go....

 Some helpful hints:

            #1) As I said in class, if you are confused you are experiencing the appropriate feeling- this will ultimately go away after time.
   
            #2) MAKE SURE TO REALLY REALLY READ!!!  Not just fake reading, fake reading will make this even more confusing and difficult to follow.

            #3) Take notes! While you're reading write down character names and relationships etc.  keep those notes with you- who knows?  Might help out later on.

           #4) If you do read this text off of a summary source (WHICH YOU SHOULD NOT DO) like Sparknotes-- please do not ruin the story for those classmates who are actually reading by spoiling major major major major events in the text.

Finally, ask questions if you have them- that's what I am here for.  I am so excited for you to get into this one! 

Enjoy it!

Trial DAY 1- GREAT JOB

I think I have an idea who I would choose as the winning side but either way it was a successful trial and I applaud both sides for being impeccable prepared.  Thanks to the magistrates for keeping things moving in an orderly fashion!





Can't wait to see what periods 2 and 4 come up with tomorrow~!

Here we go... FINAL POETRY ESSAY INFO

Just a reminder-  all poetry essays must be submitted to turnitin.com by class on Monday, this Monday, October 14. 

You can access the rubric with specific requirements on this website, where you are right now, under the handout section.  But as a quick review papers must be

3-5 pages
with at least 2 outside sources
with a works cited

I know we have reviewed this a couple of times but just in case


Period one-- because we only see each other for 45 minutes before THURSDAY, I was hoping you could respond to the following prompt over the weekend (just a couple of notes).  "Tell me about something that is impossible.  Scientifically, what could NEVER POSSIBLY EVER be?"


Let me know if you have any questions and enjoy the weekend-

Part One! Yuck



As you are reading the text I have found this adaptation of part one to be a solid reference for Gregor's size, and the layout of the apartment

Let me know if you have any questions and keep up the good work
