Class Agenda
This Week


NOTE: Several assignments were recently added to Aeries such as Gatsby Socratic Seminar questions and PMLC 1. Although these assignments were only added recently, they were due 3-4 weeks ago. Students who did not turn these assignments in will not be given credit for doing so at this time because they are too late for credit. Turn in dates were made clear when assignments were originally assigned, both via class handouts, class website, class calendar (passed out in class as well as available on class website, and on daily agendas on whiteboard. Please see Class Descriptions and Standards paperwork given out in the beginning of the year for clarification on late work, including work due while students are out for excused absences. Ample time has been given for students, present in class or not, to turn in this work; therefore no late work will be accepted for any reason.

Introduction to the DCE
In preparation for the Documented Critical Essay in senior year, juniors will study literary criticism: what it is, where to find it, and how to use it, which will prepare them for its use analyzing and writing about their novel choices next year. The project will culminate in an Annotated Bibliography with 8 sources.

All paperwork associated with the Intro to the DCE can be found here and must be printed out by students either when the student is absent from class (where the teacher will make every effort to distribute hard copies), or when indicated to do so by the teacher.

This is one of the most significant assignments of junior year and as such carries a large weight in the students' grade in the Writing Category. Additionally, in order to prepare juniors for the rigor of senior year, the calendar posted below includes details about the assignment which do not exist for most other assignments in the class and which can significantly affect a student's grade. Please read all paperwork thoroughly, come to class prepared, meet all deadlines, and give yourself a chance to do well on this assignment.

Literature: Postmodernism
Students MUST bring their books to class EACH DAY to avoid losing Speaking and Listening points.

Students will learn to annotate their texts in preparation for a variety of uses such as small group and whole class discussion as well as Socratic Seminars, which focus on a critical and analytical approach to reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Reading Rubrics should be attached to any reading/annotating assignment as indicated by the teacher.

Students will study the Postmodern Period by reading Catcher in the Rye and a Postmodern novel of their own choosing.

General Class Guidelines
Bring materials to class each day that we have read them for homework! Speaking and Listening points will be deducted for lack of materials, and students cannot actively learn the required material by sharing a book with another student.
 
All assignments must be typed!
