Welcome! 8.24-8.25 Turnitin.com Information

Welcome Back to School for the 2015-2016 year!

This is where you will find information for weekly agenda and homework assignments. Last week we practiced 3-levels of questions with our school summer reading book, Ready Player One, by Ernest Cline.  We also looked at defining vocabulary within context, and symbolism.

MONDAY and TUESDAY 8.24
HW Due: Course Outline Signatures
We will continue working with Ready Player One by identifying and defining more vocabulary within the context of the text;
as well as, by tracing the symbolism of Halliday's "Easter Egg," we will generate a pathway to one of Cline's critical themes using a "symbol-motif-theme" chart.

Next, we will create a t-graph, wherein, we collect evidence from the text, and make connections to our personal lives, popular culture, and other books we have read.
Finally, we will explore the "Glossary Entry" with literary devices from Ready Player One.

HW due WEDNESDAY: Bring your Single Subject Spiral or Composition Book dedicated as your READING JOURNAL.  BRING Boys in the Boat, as well.
