This Monday and Wednesday, we are scheduled to research in the library. Take advantage of this time with our excellent academic resources so your research paper satisfies the requirement for academic resources.  You will be hard pressed to find quality sources on Google without paying for them, but we have them available in our school's library.
Tues- "The Process: Where to start, how to narrow, and the rest of the discussion on annotated bib, etc.."
Weds- media center for research...ALSO- Your Beowulf papers with the rubric attached are due to me at the start of class.
Thur-Plagiarism discussion and finish your non-fiction "mini" papers.  Use non-fiction requirements and this should be 1.5 to 2 pages, maximum.  It is to keep you reading, not to stress you.  
Friday- Mini non-fiction papers due also...I will be busy for the next two weeks grading these!

We will soon begin a new nonfiction piece in class, An Ordinary Man, which relates the 1994 tragic killing of almost a million people by machete in three months' time.  It is compelling and tragic, but it is a story that needs to be told.  More to come.

NOTE: Research paper deadlines require that you either turn in work on time or you turn it in ahead of time when you know you will be out ahead of time...NO excuses, please.
