The students will be working on a cause and effect essay in class. While I technically won't be assigning the essay as homework, the students will have access to the paper and their materials from home, so they can work on them if they want.

I will be available after school on Monday and Tuesday to help with planning the paper if anyone would like the assistance. 

After winter break, I will be available after school Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday for two weeks to talk with students about their essays. By coming and talking to me, a student will earn three percentage points on their essays, up to 100%. They will also have a chance to fix something for an additional two percentage points. 

Updated Tue, Nov 8th

We have been working on a poem analysis in class. Any additional time needed should be at home over the next two days. 

Updated Tue, Oct 25th

Students have a preparation sheet for the socratic seminar that we are doing tomorrow. The students are supposed to create 15 questions to use in the discussion.

Updated Fri, Oct 14th

We have been working on an essay in class this last week. The students are going to have one additional day to work on it in class. However, they have the ability to work on it at home as well.

Considering that the essay will probably be the only assignment in the assessment category this trimester, it will most likely comprise 80% of their grade. If you so desire, you may have your students look over their papers over the weekend.

The readings for the essay are available on Google Classroom.
