English 9 - periods 1 and 6 - we finished the play today, then tried to determine who you thought was MOST responsible for Romeo and Juliet's fate.  Be prepared to write your test tomorrow!

English 9 - period 2 - Hopefully, you were able to select a novel today for your novel study.  You'll choose your packet tomorrow!

English 121 - Today, you were assigned an additional "on-your-own-time"  novel study.  You must select a classic, then (after reading it and making copious novel notes) write a one-page literary essay to prove that the novel you selected either should or shouldn't be considered a classic.  The guidelines for a literary essay are included on the assignment page, taken directly from your Grade 12 Standards document.  Due date is Friday, May 19.

English 9 - Periods 1 and 6 - Terrific work with Act 1...our star cross'd lovers have finally met!  What's next?  We'll complete some in-class activities this week as we continue reading in Act 2.

English 121 - This week will be dedicated to establishing your theses for the essay you have selected to write.  Remember, ALL parts of the process must be handed in with your final copy next Wednesday, April 19.  These include the plan/outline (vetted by a peer and Mr. Hache or Mrs. Corlett), your edited draft, your final copy, and the rubric we co-created.  In addition, your Article of the Week is due on Thursday.

English 9 - Periods 1 and 6 - Great job with your iambic pentameter!  You can read your work (and that of your peers) in the hallway right outside our classroom.  Today, we began Act 1, scene 1 - boy, do these families HATE each other!

              - Period 2 - You're now at Act 3!  Mr. Hache has a little side-step planned for you tomorrow...

NOTE: Grade 9 course selections are tomorrow. Don't worry - we'll take a few minutes at the beginning of class to give you the run-down!

English 121 - Today, we took a different approach to our Article of the Week, viewing a Ted Talk, instead.  This is the link, in case you were absent today:  https://www.ted.com/talks/jia_jiang_what_i_learned_from_100_days_of_rejection#t-917590

For Thursday, you must have the Food for Thought section completed (we practiced note-making while we viewed the video in class today).  Your Non-Fiction assignment is due tomorrow (Tuesday) (novel notes and a typed One-Pager).  In addition, you must have read MLK Jr.'s response piece to the Alabama Clergymen for tomorrow (Tuesday).  NOTE: If you were absent today, there is a copy in our class folder for you.

Thursday - Article of the Week (it's attached below - thanks, Jillian!)

Friday - Reflection

April 4 - Your non-fiction assignment (novel notes and typed one-pager addressing the Five Big Questions)

English 9 - We will continue to work on gathering information for your MLA-formatted essay.  Right now, you're accessing ONLY RELIABLE websites, and making your own notes.  That should take a couple of days.

English 121 - Thanks, Colton, for the great Article of the Week (I've attached it to this post).  Please have it completed for Thursday.

English 9 - The Article of the Week you received today is due on Wednesday.  Tomorrow, we'll determine the due date for your friendly letter, too.  Thanks for helping to make the rubric today!  I also have a peer edit checklist for you...another part of the process!

English 122 - Your Article of the Week is due on Thursday.  Also, your re-do of the short story assignment I handed back today (the two questions - remember?) is due tomorrow, and you have a Reflection due on Friday.  Tomorrow, you'll be completing your short story test.  Whew!  Big week!

RHYAN - Hello there!  Hope your trip is terrific!

English 9 - Today, we completed a group analysis of my letter to you (especially dealing with the punctuation), then you determined if you'd like to write a friendly letter in response, or perhaps something with a little more "bite" to it (persuasive or argumentative?).  You now have samples of both to get you started.  Tomorrow, we'll get rolling with the outline for your letter (using a graphic organizer), then we'll finish up with some SSR.  Remember, your Book-A-Month is due Sept. 30.

English 122 - Nice work today!  Your introspection is most certainly developing...although it may be driving you a little nuts!  Tomorrow, you'll be handing in the assignment you worked on today (dealing with either "That Bus Is Another World" or "Afterlife"), along with your Reflection.  After that, we'll have a say about themes in these stories, followed by a test. Whew!  You're doing great!
