Happy Homecoming! We will continue to talk about Beowulf this week. We will hopefully wrap up Part II on Thursday and begin reviewing for the Beowulf test, scheduled for Tuesday, October 2nd.
Students will have a quiz over Unit 2 vocabulary on Thursday, September 29th (due to Homecoming schedule). It is important for students to study vocabulary outside of class in order to be successful. Please use the resources posted in Week 3.
Reminder: Project Proposals are due on Wednesday, October 5th. The guidelines for this assignment are listed in the Independent Reading Project document folder, but if you would like to see examples, please ask Ms. Schmit to see the Proposal Binder.
I have also posted the first Critical Response submission folder. If you have completed the assignment, please submit the assignment in the Critical Response #1 Drop Box (listed under Week 8). Students were given prompts before reading Beowulf; typically, students will have more options over what they can write about, but by the due date, we will have only completely covered Beowulf. We will have a couple workshop days before the due date, but if students would like to get started on the assignment, I strongly encourage them to do so. Students should refer to the guiding questions they wrote down in Daily Notes prior to reading Beowulf. If they would like to respond to a different prompt, they are more than welcome to do so. Please see Ms. Schmit if you have any questions.
