Alert! Alert! Alert!
We have 15 days of school until winter break.
That includes exam days…so in reality, we have 6 learning days to go and two review days and one midterm exam day left in English.
This should seem exciting and scary.
It is not a lot of time and there are some days that you, specifically Freshmen, need to be aware of:
- Independent reading project for freshmen is due on Monday, December 3, 2018. There will be NO late assignments accepted for this assignment.
- All late work is due by Wednesday, December 5, 2018. After this date, no work other than your midterm and your conference papers will be accepted (more to follow on the conference).
- The freshmen written midterm document is due by 11:59PM on Sunday, December 9, 2018, to Google Classroom and TurnItIn.com. You will learn about TurnItIn.com next week.
These dates are written in stone. They are final. Unless you have a doctors note, you may not submit anything outside of these deadlines.
If you have ANY questions, comments, or concerns, make sure you come and talk to me! Ask me questions! Ask for help!
Time to move on to what is up this week….
We will start Monday by finishing the film A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Then we will start reading Act IV, Scene 1.
We will continue to read Act IV, Scene 1, and hopefully Scene 2. What we do not finish in class will be homework.
We will begin class on Day 3 with a quiz of Act IV. I highly recommend studying for this quiz! At this point, you should know if you need to meet with me for extra help or how to find resources to help you prepare.
After the quiz, we will begin Act V.
We will end the week by finishing Act V, hopefully. If not, we will finish it on Monday of the following week.
Monday: We will finish reading Act V of Othello. We will FINALLY finish the play! For homework, you will use the essential questions to lead a mini discussion in class on Tuesday and Thursday.
Tuesday & Thursday: We will look at our essential questions and you will work together to lead a discussion on the book. The guidelines for this will be shared with you on Monday.
Friday: We will use our final day of the week to finish watching the film version of the play.
