Here’s what’s up:
- As per our discussion yesterday, I have decided to make your lab assignment count as your essay analysis.
- Due when we are back to school. So, if we return tomorrow (Thursday) then the assignment is due AT THE BEGINNING OF CLASS.
- If we return Friday, the assignment is due AT THE BEGINNING OF CLASS.
- There will be no more lab time given for this assignment.
- Absent? You are responsible to get the work done – see above. Everything you need to complete the assignment is on the blog’s front page OR your English 621A page – Dropbox.
- The assignment was to read the article “The Truth Behind Blackfish” (click the Blackfish link on the front page of the blog) and respond to the text via the worksheet posted on the English 621A page/Dropbox.
- Here is the extension (assignment) you need to look for:
– Soc Seminar Questions on PERSUASIVE TEXTS.pdf
- Other helpful resources you’ll need for this assignment can also be found on the front page of the blog: Under “writing”, click the Compositional risk link. (This will help you with #2)
- On the English 621A page, find the “Workscited” .pdf. to properly cite the text you are analyzing.
- For those of you who finished the assignment during the two class periods given Monday and Tuesday, Awesome! Enjoy your snow day(s).
- The assignment is an evaluation and, as such, is subject to English department late policy penalties… weekends included.
- Business as usual tomorrow or Friday.
- Good luck!
- We’ll tidy up loose ends with the poetry unit on Thursday/ Friday when we return.
- Those of you scheduled for grammar presentations will be doubled up next week. You can thank Mother Nature for that one.
- Socratic seminars WILL GO on Monday and Tuesday; I’ll speak more to that when we return tomorrow, or Friday, or in May sometime…
- IF you have not finished the novel, then it looks like a great day to get some reading done. No power? Light a candle.
Stay safe and stay warm.
