Please note, the 2016 rubric is on the google classroom assignment. It is also under the rubrics tab above, and under the CSC tab above on this website.
This website has all the information you need on MLA writing & citing. It is not as user friendly as Easybib.com, but it does have more information and examples:
In class today I asked you to revise your CSC proposal based on the comments you got back on your interim proposal. Tomorrow, we will not be having class, you’ll have Ms. Sinusas with you doing some work on Naviance. Therefore, you get an extra day to do this. Or, a really good writer’s trick is do it tonight anyway, and don’t look at it again until tomorrow night. When you reread it tomorrow there will be some errors that you did not notice today. Yes, I know, some of you have already revised it after the interim, but look at again with fresh eyes tomorrow night, I can almost guarantee you’ll see something you missed before, so you’ll be able to make it EVEN BETTER!
As you should have noticed by now, I have been migrating to google classroom, so all homework is being posted there. However, don’t forget to keep looking at this site, since I keep rubrics and other helpful material for assignments organized under the “sticky note” tabs above this blogroll.
Today your graded interim memoirs were returned to you with comments on them. Tonight please incorporate your changes in response to those comments along with adding dialogue and “thoughtshots,” or inner dialogue.
Papers should be turned in via google classroom-the assignment is posted.
Look at the calendar on my twitter feed, to the right. If you click on it you can make it full size and print a copy. Every day’s lesson from now until OCtober 12th is in green and there will be a small homework assignment on that topic. The two red dates are for graded submissions.
All memoir summary were returned with comments. Some of you were asked to reconsider your topic, or your angle on that topic to make sure your story is MEMOIR WORTHY!
Tonight: expand your “sloppy summary” into a typed, first draft. I’m not looking for perfection here, just the whole story. It should be about 500-750 words long.
If you changed topic: you do not need to write a second “sloppy summary”-just dive into your 1st draft-making sure it’s MEMIOR WORTHY. It needs YOU to be the star and to have a BIG SO WHAT.
Take a look at my twitter feed-the calendar for all nightly homework assignments, the graded interim draft, and the graded FINAL memoir is there.
We spent the week before the Durham Fair going over what a memoir means, includes, looks like, how it makes a reader feel, etc. We read several mentor texts-memoirs that were exemplary work from former students.
Wed. Write your “sloppy summary” of your memoir. This can be handwritten. It does not need to be long-but must included enough details so that your readers can determine if YOU are the star of this story, and if it has a BIG SO WHAT?
No homework over the Durham Fair Weekend…for anyone but me-I read these this weekend.
