Starting The Kite Runner

I should have all papers submitted to turnitin.com by now for The Merchant of Venice. We looked at some translated terms for Arabic words online for this book, but honestly, most of it can be figured out in the context they are used. Many are directly translated for you. 
Read in the Kite Runner 1-3 for Weds, and 4-6 for Thurs; we will do 7 in class together due to its content.  Then, I will assign, discuss and quiz or test on it.  We will have a quiz after we read chapter 10.

MOV Analysis docs

posted Mar 23, 2018, 5:40 AM by Helen Wynkoop

Remember that this paper, like the Beowulf paper, is two-pronged. It requires that you discuss the author's use of literary techniques and devices in theme (main point) of the play.  
The Merchant of Venice is a very carefully woven play which employs many themes and uses many different techniques to develop it.

Remember to use SIGNIFICANT quotes for a literary analysis.
See below attached guide from earlier this year, and you might want to refer to the documents attached as well.

February 19-22 (Hamlet analysis)

posted Feb 20, 2018, 12:34 PM by Helen Wynkoop

Monday-Wednesday- WE watched Hamlet with some of Ms. Wynkoop's comments as we began each day and as it was helpful for the viewers:>). On Thursday, we will actually begin writing these---making sure to brainstorm and write so that the assignment can be submitted on Feb. 28. Unless it has blatant errors in grammar and usage, I will grade on content.  No rubric, but the length should be 1.5-2.0 pages.  Choose a "nugget" and focus on an issue or see attached possible ideas.
Thurs- work in class; then after break, I will allow one more day to get this finished and into turnitin.com
Happy Break!

February 12-16

Feb 1-2 and 5-9

Thurs- In first hour, we finished Schindler's List. We will probably finish it in 5th as well today. I have a written assignment with "loose" parameters attached.  Ask me if you have questions.  I really don't care what you discuss as long as you read the "8 Stages of Genocide and Prevention" on Google.  Then read the assignment, asking me any questions that you might have.  On Monday, Feb 5, I told class that this would be strictly extra credit.  See me if you have further interest...due on Friday Feb 9...no exceptions...it's extra credit, remember?  Please submit to turnitin.com

Monday, Feb 5, we discussed (viewing PPT) the "8 Stages of Genocide and its Prevention" which you can Google if absent.

Tues-Weds Intro to sonnets, particularly the Shakespearean sonnet.  It is a two day intro, with some class practice.  Then, we write our own; drafts due on Monday, Feb. 12; Final printed to me and delivered to class on Weds, Feb. 14th.  Believe me, every year, students moan, but every year, they always say it is fun!  Get ready for some fun.  No absence does NOT get you out of this
Thurs and Friday- in class with laptops to work on sonnets.  We start Hamlet next week.  It's video version, so don't get worried...yet:>) Sonnets must be peer evaluated on Monday, too.:>)

Review Sheet

posted Jan 17, 2018, 4:26 AM by Helen Wynkoop

 Plus know the usage of already, all ready; their, there, and they're; affect and effect; every day, everyday; where, were, and we're. There are also some pronoun antecedent questions...common knowledge and there is no reason to think you do not know them. They are review from previous years.

Ok Seniors! I have made a decision

posted Dec 15, 2017, 2:04 PM by Helen Wynkoop   [ updated Dec 21, 2017, 10:59 AM ]

We will do our presentations as scheduled.  In fact if anyone wants to go on Monday, that is great.  I will use Tues and Weds  for the same, and then I will show the movie on Thurs and Friday.  You can finish the book (not novel, it's non-fiction) and we will discuss it after break.  How does that sound?  I have so much to grade next week, just to keep juniors caught up, that I will be happy to extend it to the TUES we return for final book discussion and quiz.

I hope this makes all happy...so sorry if those who rushed to finish are not, but I felt this was needed.

Thanks for understanding.
