Metamorphosis Part I- video


I still think this is just creepy and weird enough to succeed in capturing the setting of Part I.  Check it out (it is very brief) and we can discuss next class.

*don't forget to complete the part 1 discussion questions and read part 2!

Just a few reminders:  you all should be hard at work drafting your "This I Believe" narratives (deadline Mon / Tues) or working on your poetry analysis papers.  I would hope that you have drafts of both pieces by the end of this week.

GOOD NEWS!  There is a reason for all of us to be happy :) is back and better than ever!

If you scroll down to the first post you will find updated log in information.  The expectation is that the poetry essay must be submitted to by your class deadline in order to receive credit

please let me know if you have any questions

This I Believe (College Essay Work)

Just wanted to remind everyone that the perspective poetry assessment deadline is next class.  I hope you have at least considered which poem you will write your formal poetry analysis essays on (deadline sept. 18-19).

On Tues. and Wed. of next week we will be spending the entire class period drafting and editing our narratives.  Please make sure that you have some work with you during those classes as that will be our only opportunity to spend class time on these essays (plus I would like to look at what you have been working on).

Finally- you guys have been doing GREAT!  I have really enjoyed our first week and a half and I am expecting for our classes to only get better now that pictures, summer reading, fire drills and Blair handouts are temporarily over.

As usual please let me know if you have any questions

enjoy the weekend
