Eng 112 - Your chapters 1-7 test is on Monday. Please ensure all packet work / questions are done by this time. Eng 111 - Read book 18 of The Iliad and set up a double entry journal to notate as you read. One side of the journal will be a quote directly from the book (copied in its entirety) and on the other side, you will formulate a personal resopnse, form a connection, or apply knowledge to this quote. Your responses must have obvious thought and consideration behind them without just "going through the motions". Your focus can be on the Rage of Achilles now that he has been reintroduced to the plot, but don't overlook anything of interest along the way in your reading. (ie. "This quote from Odysseus makes me feel for the Achaean King because it reminds me of the time when...") Lame example, yes. I know. Do better.

Eng 112 - Complete questions for Chapter 5 and read Chapter 6. HAVE THIS DONE FOR TOMORROW. Do not forget to keep up in your packets. Chapter 5 1.  (Page 76)  Ralph ‘…stopped, facing the strip; and remembering that first enthusiastic exploration as though it were part of a brighter childhood…’    Discuss. 2.Ralph asks Piggy about ghosts.  (Page 92).  Piggy responds that there are no ghosts or beasts.  Why? 3.?Page 94.  “Grown-ups know things….the majesty of adult life.”  Remembering what brought the boys to the island, is Piggy right. Are the boys only failing because they aren’t grown-ups?   Eng 111 - Complete Book 11 of The Iliad and complete a NEW literature circle task.

This week a very animated and engaged TFitzOfficial interviewed Mr. Gopee and Mr. Theriault about the upcoming production of Tarzan. Based on Edgar Rice Burrough's Tarzan of the Apes and the smash-hit 1999 Disney animated film, TARZAN tells the story of an infant boy orphaned on the shores of West Africa. Taken in and raised by a tribe of gorillas, the young boy strives for acceptance by his ape father while grappling with his uniqueness. When a human expedition enters their territory, Tarzan - now a man - encounters strangers like himself for the first time. Tarzan opens this Friday night.
