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
