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

Just a reminder about deadlines

Just wanted to remind everyone that the deadline for material is when your class starts.  So in the case of the Poetry Essay, those papers should be either submitted via hard copy or in turnitin.com by the time you come into class. 

Please let me know if you have any questions

Reading is coming

Just wanted to give a heads up that there is some reading coming up on the horizon.  Two short stories for next week by Camus and Hemingway.  You can find them and the corresponding ?s on the handout section of the site.  A reminder these only needed to be note-form responses so no need to adhere to the directions on those.

Also we will be starting the Metamorphosis any day now- All of this reading is relatively short (dense but short) but I just wanted you to be aware as you continue to work on the essays.

Please let me know if you have any questions.

It's Getting Real

Ok team things are starting to escalate now.  We will review some writing and researching techniques at the close of the week before moving into the College Essay lessons which will take place next week.  Keep in mind that even though theses deadlines are not for a couple weeks (Oct 7 for periods 2 & 4, Oct 8 for period 1) we will start our reading shortly and then you may not have as much time to focus on the writing process.  Here is my advice--

* start drafting ideas for these writing assignments sooner rather than later.  You don't want to get to a point where they can snowball on you

* communicate with me.  I'm here to help.  Email.  Academic Support (165 second half of lunch Wed-Fri).  If you are having trouble let me know.

You'll all do great.  I am confident that this will be a strong start for your senior year. 

Let me know if you have any questions
