I handed back the final essays for Of Mice and Men today. I have given students the opportunity to re-do their essays for a better mark. We went through some of the common errors today in class. If students wish to fix up their essays, they can do so and hand in the polished essays on Wednesday and I will re- mark them.
We went through the first research paper assignment for our new unit today. Students finished up the questions from the article handed out yesterday.
We then discussed the expectations for the research paper and some students did some researching for their topic choices.
We will continue with this work in tomorrow’s class. I have uploaded the guidelines for the paper below.
Please make sure your questions on The Life of Shakespeare are finished for homework. We will be going over these on Monday!
The questions are attached below.
We began our unit on Shakespeare and Romeo and Juliet today. We read a handout on Shakespeare’s life – I have attached this below. Students then watched a documentary on his life as well. We will finish this tomorrow and complete a little assignment to go along with it.
· If you missed class, please read the handout at home tonight.
Students received a new group project today. I have uploaded the specifics below.
Students chose their groups and their characters and began brainstorming ideas. We will continue with this work tomorrow. The final project will be due towards the end of next week.
