Welcome! 8.24-8.25 Turnitin.com Information

Welcome Back to School for the 2015-2016 year!

This is where you will normally 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.

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, looking at the symbolism of Halliday's "Easter Egg,"
then, we will generate a pathway to one of Cline's critical themes through the "egg" symbol.

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.

HW due WEDNESDAY: Bring your Single Subject Spiral or Composition Book dedicated as your READING JOURNAL.  BRING Kindred as well.
