Tenebrous Tuesday

Block B: Your quiz on short story terms is done - you will see your marks tomorrow. We had a great discussion today about your reactions post-reading. You have such creative and engaging responses! For homework tonight - you have the choice. You need to complete 1 side of the sheet - either plot OR foreshadowing. You will eventually need to do both - but I'll give you time in class for whatever side you didn't finish.

Block C: Great work on your Artist projects! You will have another work block tomorrow - you should be at the CSI stage at this point.

Monday, March 12, 2018


Block B: Just a couple of reminders from class today - if you didn't finish the post-reading and anticipation guide questions - please do them tonight. Also - you need to study for the quiz on short story terminology - everything on the green sheet!

Block C: We're starting a new project on an Artist who Inspires You - today you chose your artist and tomorrow you will continue working on your research and song selection.

Sun-shiny Friday!

Block B: If you did not finish the anticipation questions for "The Monkey's Paw" please do those for Monday. In addition - the good copy of your mind map is due. Please bring the good copy and the planning sheet, with the rubric on it, for Monday's class!

Block C: If your essay is not in today - it is now overdue and you will be getting an interim. Please complete the three mandatory questions about "The Child Who Walks Backwards" for Monday.

Thwarted Thursday!

Block B: You will get a slight reprieve where your mind map is concerned. You will have some extra time outside of class to complete your good copy. I will not be collecting the mind map on MONDAY. We will be moving on to something else tomorrow - so don't count on any class time to get it finished!

Block C: If you have not yet handed in your essay as of tomorrow by 3:00 - you will be getting an academic alert interim. Blackout Poems are now LATE. Make sure you get yours in!

Wondering about Wednesday?

Block B: We will continue working on the rough drafts / good copies of your mind maps in class tomorrow. The finished good copy is due on Friday.

Block C: If you didn’t finish the blackout poetry task from class today - it is homework for tonight! Don’t forget about your essays - your last day to hand it in is Friday!
