Today students took an open-notes quiz on the Anglo-Saxon Period. Students who have been absent–A.B. and D.H.–should take Cornell notes on pp. 4-18 in their books in order to prepare for this quiz. We also discussed possible Senior Project topics and took a look at the class blog.
Next week we will begin our study of Beowulf, an Old English epic. We will also refine our research questions for the Senior Project and begin locating resources for the research paper. We will discuss MLA format for Works Cited entries.
Two blog questions are posted for this week–each student should respond to the discussion questions about the Senior Project and heroes. These responses are due by midnight on Sunday, January 6.
New blog questions will be posted on Sunday. The first post will be due on Wednesday, January 9. Comments to other students’ posts will be due by midnight on Sunday, January 13.
On Monday, I will be doing a notebook check. I expect to see the following items filed neatly in a three-ring notebook:
Class calendar, filled-out with dates and assignments
Senior Project packet
Anglo-Saxon Period Cornell notes
Have a wonderful weekend! I look forward to reading your blog comments this weekend. See you Monday!
