Today–have your initial discussion on google drive. Try to get through the whole section. Go paragraph by paragraph and be sure to look at Orleanna’s very rich use of language. Just throw around ideas and record good points/quotes on the doc. This process should be half and hourish. Then, each of you should write an over-riding statement for your section on the doc.
Tomorrow night- Meet again on the doc and decide on the best statement, then write TS’s together–just rough. We aren’t doing a whole commentary.
For Tuesday–have your quotes, etc for each girl. Read 1/2 of Revelation. We’ll need to spend some time going over what I missed!
Please don’t stress, my dears. This is just another chance for us to work together, to learn together, to maybe even fail together. And that would be ok. Really. Truly.
The rubric I will use is here. This is actually the Paper 2 Rubric, the one that will be used to grade you in May 2015. I will also begin to use it regularly. And, as it is the IB rubric, that means your mark will be SCALED! That means: relax; it will be fine. NOTE: I added some special guidelines in the margin to tie it to P&P
Answer questions on commentary sheet from today for homework.
Learning Logs now due Dec 2nd (or earlier is you are so inclined). Remember, they are rough copy quality.
Read PWB, Genesis for Monday as well. Re the sticky question…I don’t want to guide you up front; you guys need to discover. However, we will have a good discussion the first day about what YOU think needs sticky-ing.
Homework will be “light” this week–Tues night you need to work on your outline but everything else will be in class. Phew. Happy reading of PWB!
Hello my dear Austen fans. I hope you like my latest brainchild. Have each person in your groups choose a character from the novel . I thought we could use a very new form of writing to demonstrate our knowledge of Austen’s characters. I’d like you to play around with this Facebook Template, and adopt the persona of your assigned character: talk like him, write of the things she would write about, or you might even find some pics or articles to post that he/she might be interested in. You can just copy and paste into the doc. See if you can email each other some responses back and forth and then copy them into the appropriate slot. This will also give you the opportunity to play with language, with the proper “register” for the task.
Due: email me your page by Monday, November 25th.
