Week Ending 5/30/2014

Three things...

  • FCAT writing scores are in.  If you want to know your score now...please shoot me an email.
  • ALL classes need to have the novel read when you next come to class...this is how I see it...
    • Monday - no school
    • Tuesday - 5th and 6th
    • Wednesday - 7th and 2nd
      • There will be a question for each chapter.  At this point, 2nd period is SKUNKING everyone.  Looks like I'll be making breakfast food!!!

If you have extra credit coupons you want to use, attach them to a piece of notebook paper, write the following on it:  Please credit my AQWF Lit Analysis with these points, and place it in the late basket.

Also, in an effort to help some grades improve...if you'd like your final Literary Analysis to count twice in your grade, please write that on a piece of paper and give it to me.  Just realize that if you make a poor grade, it will go in twice.  Having said that, it is quite possible to earn a 100 on this assignment and really boost your grade.  If you do not want a grade to count twice, just don't tell me anything.  It won't affect your grade at all.

For the online portion (McCarthy), you need to correct that and make one submission per group to TurnItIn.com NO LATER THAN Friday.   You need to make a copy of the document to edit it.  You may certainly read the entries from other groups, but you certainly may NOT copy it.
