Monday, Jan. 12: Today we continued reading Shakespeare’s Othello. Everyone needs time to practice reading aloud for points. If you still need read-aloud points, please ask for a part to read, when we’re reading out loud tomorrow.

Tuesday, Jan. 13: Today we continued reading Shakespeare’s Othello. Everyone needs time to practice reading aloud for points. If you still need read-aloud points, please ask how you can make up the points.

Wednesday, Jan. 14: Most classes finished reading Othello today. Since you still need to finish it, please bring a book with you to the library on Thursday and finish reading on your own.

Thursday, Jan. 15: Before we went to the library today, we wrote a poem about Othello, based on a picture that displays Othello and Desdemona. Ask your teacher for a picture (or follow this link), and please turn in a poem that includes each step in the writing process (pre-write, draft, edit, and revise), along with a six traits form (found in the make-up work center). This will be a graded assignment, so please do not disregard this important assignment! Your classmates will have helpful notes on “How to Write a Poem” if you need extra assistance.
