The rubric for the roundtable assessments have been posted on the handout section of the website- For period four this roundtable will begin NEXT CLASS- be sure to prepare for this by reading and annotating the material as you go.
#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!
Here is the gun control satire that needs to be reviewed for homework after our intro to Satire lesson. It is broken up into two parts- please review both and respond to the prompts on the homework calendar. Be sure to include specifics in your written response as it will be collected.
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~!
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
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-
