Today we talked about your final exam. On Monday, you will write your final exam essay, which will count of 50% of that grade. Here is the prompt (Essay Prompt). You may plan and prewrite (including outlining), but you may not write a rough draft. You essay must be completely composed during class on Monday.
I also gave you these sonnets to read and analyze as practice for your final (Shakespearean Sonnet Analysis).
Finally, students read the rest of Act 2 and answered some questions in response. Tomorrow, as I mentioned, I will be out for a doctor’s appointment, so I would like for you to read Act 3 and answer the questions I have left for you.
Students are eligible for up to five points of extra credit on their final exams by reading a free-choice novel from our classroom library and completing this assignment (Free-Choice Novel Extra Credit).
This must be submitted no later than 11:59 on Monday, May 28. The amount of extra credit received will depend on the quality of the submission.
Hi students —
Unfortunately, I need to move our extra-credit showing of Shakespeare in Love from Friday to Monday — I have a doctor’s appointment that I need to attend on Friday. I apologize for the change!
You will still need to bring a parent permission slip if you are planning to attend.
Today I asked you to do three things:
- Vocabulary.com for Romeo and Juliet List 1
- Vocabulary sentences for Romeo and Juliet List 1 (no grammar component needed — I just need to be able to tell that you understand the meaning of the word from the context of the sentence) — submitted through Turnitin.com
- An original sonnet (Compose Your Own Shakespearean Sonnet) submitted through Turnitin.com (this will help you with the Shakespearean sonnet that will be on your final exam)
In class on Friday, we covered sonnets. Please see the PowerPoint for the lesson: Sonnets.
