Tuesday 14 March- English 9

Since we had technical difficulties in room 2-101, you will now attach your presentation to the assignment in Classroom. We are scrapping the live presentation portion. Whatever you want me to grade needs to be included in that assignment.

Friday 10 March- English 9

Today we continue working on the presentations. We will start presenting on TUESDAY instead of Monday, which will be your last day to get this pulled together.

You will need-
1. A properly formatted Works Cited turned in by one group member
2. A 10 minute presentation about how your sources connect to The Odyssey and the Hero’s Journey.
3. A paragraph about the presentation turned in via Classroom. Directions are there.

Don’t forget about Friday #22, which is also based on your choice book.

Finish up Friday!  Get your stuff done. 

Today we are in the lab again. Your focus should be on the Hero’s Journey and how it relates to the sources you have already found. Add this information to your shared document.

Reminders-
1. Turn in any missing/revised work by tomorrow night.
2. Friday #21 is also due tomorrow.
3. Finish and turn in yesterday’s documentation activity.
4. (pds 1&4 only) Turn in your diction essay by Friday.

Today’s Dr.Seuss quote-
“You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself, any direction you choose.”

Wednesday 1 March- English 9

Learning Target- Students will create a sample works cited page using proper MLA format.

You will be working from the Purdue OWL page regarding MLA documentation of electronic sources. Rather than just plug the citation into Easybib and accept what it spits out, you will use a format and arrange the information on your own. It’s actually not that difficult.

With your team, create a Works Cited including the six items below. Then add ONE of your group member’s books for a total of seven entries. Turn in your group’s document when you are finished. Please include all group members’ names on the document. 

Picture– It is not enough to cite Google image search. You need to follow it back to the source and cite that.

Video– If it is a clip, include that information.

Song– Yes, this is Wikipedia, but it is a good place to find publication information. Go to “other common sources” and scroll to “song”

Poem– This is the writer’s blog. Otherwise, cite a poem like any other article on a website.

Story– The whole book is on Google Books. You only need to cite the story. Find it in the table of contents.

News article– Seems simple in comparison.

Book– One of your group member’s books.
