Focus: What help do you need from me?
1. Warm-up: Finishing up yesterday's MC discussion
2. Working on projects and papers
PROJECT PEOPLE: Please print a hard copy of your poem for me today. I will make a packet of all of your poems for the class. Include your name and the poet's name on your printout.
Also, remember that your project does need to include a polished, dramatic reading of your poem.
PAPER PEOPLE: Please include an MLA heading on your paper and page numbers. Staple your poem to the back of your essay.
There should be a thesis somewhere in your essay, but it doesn't need to be at the end of the first paragraph.
In the explication/analysis portion of your essay, please organize your paragraphs by argument; then, use poetic devices (allusion, metaphor, imagery, alliteration, repetition, slant rhyme, etc.) to support your arguments.
1. Prepare for tomorrow's fishbowl discussion of Invisible Man, Chapters 17 and 18.
2. Continue working on your project or paper (due Monday).
