back in class on Wednesday 11/16

By the end of the day on Monday, I have conferenced with all of you and you all received feedback on your Junod draft (if you wrote it). We meet again as a class on Wednesday. There is no formal homework, but you should do a few things to prepare:

  • Bring your DK Handbook and your purple Student’s Guide to class.
  • Read over all three of your essays and begin thinking about your final portfolio. You need to choose two interpretive essays. Which essays do you think are the most manageable for revision? It would be smart to actually revise one of these essays and bring a hard copy to class on Wednesday so I can give you feedback. I said that to most of you during your conference.
  • Read the handout I gave you during your conference, which is titled Reflective Essay Guidance. Your reflective essay drafts are due 11/21. Turn the paper in early if you are going to be absent on 11/21. I will give you outlines for the reflective essay in class on Wednesday.

Lastly, here is the basic citation pattern you should follow in your Works Cited pages. For Neufeld and Junod, substitute author name, title, and page range as needed.
