    I did the hard work for you and now all you have to do is study! Here is your vocabulary list for Sunday. Please study the following words for Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven."
  • Assigned on 10/4:
    For homework, please analyze Edgar Allan Poe's poem "The Raven." There are 18 stanzas containing 6 lines each. You must give an analysis of EACH stanza, in detail. Please type up your homework in a word document and submit it here in Google Classroom. Please do not submit a PDF, I want it on a document that I can comment on. Once you are finished with your analysis, I want you to write a paragraph (5-7 sentences) telling me who you think Lenore is and what happened to her. If you steal your ideas from the internet, you better cite your information! Try to come up with your own ideas before turning to your computer for help.

  • Assigned on 11/1:
    Begin writing. I am not going to give you much guidance for this weeks homework. I want to see what you can do on your own. Be creative. Write as much as you can without being concerned about perfection. I am not worried about grammar at this point in the writing process. I am concerned about your work being organized and clear to the reader. You have your outlines, so follow them and start to write. You should have at least 50% of your piece done for homework. The due date will be Saturday night. I will not be adding comments or corrections until the following week, I just want to see that it is done. You will be graded for your efforts.
  • Assigned on 11/8:
    Finish your stories, essays, or poems. Remember this is a rough draft. Have it completed and handed in by Saturday at 5pm. It will not be corrected until the following week, but I want to look at it prior to class. Those of you that do your homework at 9:00am Sunday morning, PLEASE do your work a couple hours earlier this week.
  • Assigned on 11/15:
    Please work on your writing while we work on your corrections. Keep checking Google Classroom and see if we handed back your work. Read your work out loud! It is helpful to read your work to someone to hear your mistakes, but if you don't want to do that, just read it out loud in your room by yourself. You will still be able to hear your mistakes.

    See Google Classroom
  • Assigned on 12/6:
    Because you have been working nonstop on your writing assignments, I'd like to give you a break. We are going to read together in class. Please do not read at home. I want to analyze this text as a class. The text will be posted on Google Classroom...don't worry yourself about it now ; )
  • Assigned on 12/13:
    Go to Google Classroom; you will find the short story, "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle" along with the article "20 Rules For Writing Detective Stories." The first thing you must do is read all 20 rules for writing a detective story. Print out the article. Have that article near you when you are reading "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle. You must also print out the short story. You will be writing on the text. NO YOU CAN NOT JUST TYPE ON THE TEXT. We are going to see if Sir Arthur Conan Doyle created a solid detective story when he wrote "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle." When you see certain RULES show up in the short story, place the number rule next to the spot in the story.
  • Assigned on 12/20:
    If you completed last week's "The Adventure of the Blue Carbuncle" assignment, then you have no homework. If you didn't complete it, please turn it in on Google Classroom. Happy Holidays. Enjoy Your Break.
