New Class Format

Hamlet begins today and I just wanted to remind everyone about how class will function for the rest of the semester.  We will be doing all of our reading in class.  All questions assessing understanding of the major themes presented in the play will be completed at home and individually.  You may not work in groups for these questions and they will be collected at the start of each following class period.  Please email or come and see me with any questions

Here is a visual adaptation of our first reading for your reference:

  For the most part the trials were an overwhelming success.  The majority of you really explored the characters and events that took place in the story and how they related to Meursault.  Thanks for the hard work and on to GODOT!

Final Grades, Trial Prep and College Essays

A couple of gentle reminders.  First off final grades have been posted so you should be able to check them out on Edline at this point.  Next, please make sure you are prepared for your trial next week. This will be a major summative assessment.  If you have not completed the trial prep make sure you do so over the long weekend.

Lastly, I am really trying to get to everyone's college essays but I have gotten over 20 essays to look at over the last 24 hours all with Nov. 1 deadlines.  There is no way I will be able to get back to everyone but I will do my best

Great first quarter everyone, looking forward to one more

End of Quarter

Just wanted to update everyone on the end of the quarter.  Grades will pretty much be the same until the end of the quarter next week.  I will be trying to complete The Metamorphosis essays but it is unlikely at this point.  I understand that many of you will want to turn in late or incomplete work and this is a possibility in some cases- however absolutely no late work will be accepted after Wed. October 28.  I will also be making calls home to those students who may fail the quarter.

Please let me know if you have any questions... oh and LETS GO METS!

Keep on keeping on!

Some classes will not meet again for about a week:  make sure that you are working on your Metamorphosis essay because the deadline is next week.  Also make sure you have read the entire first section of The Stranger (up to page 60)

Let me know if you have any questions
