If you missed class on Tuesday, September 21st...SHAME! SHAME! SHAME!

Dear Juniors,

The following image relates to your "Article of the Week #3" that was given to you in class today. If you  missed class, please see me in order to obtain a copy.

I think you will more greatly appreciate the freedoms you possess as citizens of the United States of America after you read, annotate and notate the article. Please notate the article using only RED. So, your notations need to appear in the form of questions for this article. The notations for this article are due on Wednesday, September 29th.

2. Each student who submitted a Five Paragraph Essay on Friday received a peer's essay to edit and evaluate. This assignment is due on Thursday, September 23rd.

3. We started our discussion regarding "Short Story" elements. In order to obtain this information, please visit with me or a friend. We also reviewed the short story structure by making cookies; it was so much fun! Plan on a quiz covering the introductory information discussed in class today. You will need to familiarize yourself with irony, foreshadowing, the different types of characterization, the different types of characters, the purposes of short stories, the conflicts associated with short stories, and the short story structure. Good Luck!
