  • Help! For extra credit please bring TOMORROW a fresh typed copy of your poem or essay about yourself that you submitted the first week. I would like to hang some on the bulletin board. You may have your name attached or not. You may change some name in the piece if you want to remain incognito. Have it on one sheet (modify spacing to do this).


Homework

Homework

Read pages 71-81 in Holt

You may obtain the textbook online. I’ll tell you as soon as I learn(!)

Your memoir paragraph is due on Friday (1st, 3rd, and 4th) and Tuesday (6thd)—remember a four-line heading on top left and center the title on the line after it

Submit your CB Friday.

Continue reading The Scarlet Letter. We will be discussing/writing about it week after next.


Prompt for the memoir optional

Prompt for the memoir (optional)

In your CB write about a life-changing moment in your life. It does not have to be THE most significant moment. Rather, choose one of the top moments that you do not mind someone (possibly) reading. I say possibly because one never knows who might peek into your CB sometime. Tell what happened and why it resonates as important to you.
