Monday- review of vocab; reviewed terms for final; start the opening discussion for Romantics; read pages 305-311 and put in outline form for Tues. Start in class and finish on Tues.
Tuesday- review the SAT study test on pps. 292-297. Students scored poorly on this, and we re-read the pieces and went over all answers, acertaining how we might better prepare to take this sort of reading test in the future.  Assigned pps. 312-313 to notes as well. Review in class on Wednesday. I will be collecting notes in the next couple of be ready or zeros fill the spot.
Wednesday-review vocab and reminder of vocab 4 for quiz on Friday. Work on presentations in media.
Thursday- Finish Romantics introduction. Presentations for Independent Reads. We will do six or seven today, but then we will do two or three a day after...unless students ask to present. I want our classes to stay focused.
Friday- VOCAB #4 quiz w/ex. cr.  start Washington Irving (318); read "The Devil and Tom Walker" (320) for Monday; I will be discussing satire and its use; be prepared for a reading quiz.
Monday- more grammar- parallelism; possible quiz on "The Devil and Tom Walker" and ...more to come.
