Today we went over the most important points on the syllabus; please make sure to read this in its entirety, as you will have a pop quiz at some point on the class rules and procedures.

We worked on setting up your Turnitin.com and Vocabulary.com accounts; if you are still having trouble, please come see me during lunch on Thursday or Friday and I’ll help you get that resolved. Note that you must complete your Odyssey Vocab List 1 Vocab.com practice session by Monday at midnight (it is for a grade!).

We also went over the first half of that vocabulary list; we’ll finish the rest tomorrow.

Finally, homework for tonight was to read Book 1 of the Odyssey (1 – Book 1) and complete the reading guide (Book 1 Reading Guide). We will go over the reading guide tomorrow in class; please note that your answers need to be entirely your own.

3. You should see your first assignment, which is a way for you to see how Turnitin.com’s plagiarism detection works. Search for your summer reading novel on the internet. Find some text about your book, copy it, and paste it into your submission. Then I’ll show you what I see when you have submitted something that is not your original work.
