May 2, 2014

Today we discussed the first section of WB as a whole class and in small groups. I gave you the next discussion guide (due Tuesday; the electronic copy is in an earlier post) in case you’d like to keep reading over the weekend.

We also talked about the Shakespeare and Rap PowerPoint, and discussed the assignment guidelines for that – please bring a copy of what you would like to present to class on Monday (for a grade).

Your vocabulary sentences for WB are also due on Monday – there will be a quiz that day. See the Vocabulary section of the website if you lost your paper copy.

Shakespeare and Hip-Hop PowerPoint (please take notes):

Poetry Study – Shakespeare and Hip-Hop

April 30 and May 1, 2014

On Wednesday, we had a lovely performance of Romeo and Juliet from the University of Houston. Thank you students for being such a respectful audience (and for not laughing at me too hard when I tripped over one of their swords!).

Today, we went over the practice reading quiz that we took on Tuesday, and we talked about the vocabulary words from Winter’s Bone. Sentences for those will be due on Monday (nothing special, just one sentence per word, in any order you would like).

Remember, Friday is the last day to do your poetry recitation and the last day to turn in any MAUS reading guides.
