DAILY CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES: 

Monday, Sept. 22: Today we used our outlines to guide us as we wrote an essay on archetypes in nonfiction literature. If you were gone today, it’s very important that you tell your teacher, so she doesn’t dock you points for not having written an essay. (Teachers don’t always remember who was absent, so it’s very important that you tell her you were absent.)

Tuesday, Sept. 23: Today the whole class did peer editing for ten participation points. You’ll need to come in at lunch, after school, or during our next Friday “Extra Help” day to make up this important ten-point grade on your essay. If you wish to come in at lunch or after school, please set up an official appointment with your teacher.

Wednesday, Sept. 24: Today we went to the computer lab to type our essays. If you have a computer and printer at home, it’s fine to type yours at home. Otherwise, you’ll need to set an official appointment with your teacher to come in at lunch, after school, or during our next Friday “Extra Help” day, to get that essay typed. When you turn it in, you will need to turn in the whole thing: thesis graphic organizer, outline, first draft (with proofreading symbols on it), and typed final draft. Your final draft must have an MLA heading at the top.

Thursday, Sept. 25: Today we turned in our archetype essays. If you were gone today, please go to the makeup work center and look in the very last box. There you’ll find a half-sheet of paper with a chart on it. Staple this to the top of your essay’s final draft, first draft, outline, and thesis graphic organizer (in that order). If you need any help, please ask. Staplers are by the pencil sharpener. Turn in your whole essay, demonstrating that you’ve done all the steps in the writing process; give it to your teacher. Never leave make-up work on her desk.
