I’m going to postpone taking up the questions until Monday because I want to focus today on brainstorming and working on the personal essay.
Please remember, your rough draft is due before March Break and we will be doing the sight passage test on March 4. Monday and Wednesday will be work periods for your essays.
Your formative projects are due today. Please submit your rubric with self assessment along with your project. If you are submitting digitally, please write that on the rubric. If I just need to visit a URL, please write the URL on the rubric.
Today you’ll get a copy of Once More to the Lake (or you can download the digital copy). This is an example of a personal narrative essay. I’ve attached notes to the essay for you. Remember, this essay and the previous on (The Town Dump) are exemplars for your personal essay. Tomorrow we’ll take up the questions for The Town Dump and discuss Once More to the Lake.
But today you have a work period to do any of the following:
If you were away yesterday, make sure you get the Punctuation Power Pack handout from yesterday (posted on the blog as well). You are responsible for that information. Today we’re going to be going to 208 so you can work on your projects. Before we do that I will hand out and discuss your CCAs. You can get a digital copy of the assignment here: ENG 3U Independent Novel Study CCA
Today we’re going to look at some specialized pieces of punctuation that–when used correctly–show you have a real mastery of written English. These pieces include: dashes, ellipses, parentheses, colons, and semicolons.
Also, yesterday we were talking about using logos, pathos, and ethos to analyze a Super Bowl Commercial. Well here you go:
What do you make of this?
Today we’ll be working in 208 (of course, if you’re reading this right now because you’ve just logged in to a computer in 208 then you already know this. Weird, isn’t it? It’s like I’m reading your mind…)
You have this period for working on your projects. Remember, check in #1 is due this Friday.
