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.:>)
