In Class Work Day
Students may work on any of the following:
2. Writing prompt from last class
3. IRB1 Reading
Read the blog from last Thursday for clarification. You may also use the time to conference with me about your memoir, if you have questions.
Side note: A wall in HS
015 has been designated the No Name Wall of Shame. If you have handed in
work that does not have a name on it, it has been hung there.
Protocol to get your work back in the books?
1. Make an appointment during an Extra Help session from 3-4:00 on Thursdays.
2. Make an appointment during a different time we are both available. DO
NOT STAND ME UP. This is a privilege given to students who have already
once come to an Extra Help session because you have demonstrated
already that you can keep appointments.
**getting your book "reconciled" is YOUR responsibility. Not mine.
Additionally, if you stand me up three times or more, you have revoked
your right to seek extra help for the quarter and a letter will go home
to your parents notifying them.
Also, consider it your responsibility to have your laptops charged OR to have a laptop charger with you. Laptop charger stations are located in the HS lobby if ever you'd like to charge your laptop unattended in a locked environment while away at lunch or various classes. Please use this new feature at the HS to your advantage.
Homework for Wednesday, September 19: (copied from last post)
Turn in the Memoir Final draft in MLA format along with the Rubric
(will be provided for you), self-edited copy, peer-edited copy, and
proposal. You may include any additional drafts you may have been
working on. The drafts serve you as a record of the amount of effort you
put forth in this writing process.
2. Answer the following prompt and post it on your weblog (300 word minimum):
Rau reflects at the end of the her memoir, "But I put it all happily
away because it happened to a girl named Cynthia and I was never really
particularly interested in her." Are you convinced of this statement?
Continue reading your IRB1. The book should be finished by the end of
this month. Specifically, your book should be entirely read by September
28, which is coming up quickly. While reading, think about what aspect
of the author's writing style you like the best (the way the author
slows down the story to capture the nonverbal communication going on in
the room in addition to what is actually said, the way the author uses
simple colloquial language to describe yet doesn't lack in depth because
the reader gets the impression there is a thoughtful process behind the
words, the author's use of incoroportatin the flashback to create a
history of the characters to help the reader better understand the
significance of the ongoing as well as the past, ...and so on). Be able
to identify a passage to a page that exemplifies the qualities you
