Shouty capital letters get your attention?  We are meeting in the auditorium for a play tomorrow.  I expect you to be on time and behave at this EHS Drama Production!

Thanksgiving Imagery Poem due MONDAY!  Remember the guidelines:  
  • at least 2 lines and images for each of the 5 senses
  • words should be descriptive and create "word pictures" so the reader feels like they can "experience" the images you create
  • do NOT label which of the senses each line is (it should be apparent from your description)
  • at least 10 total lines
  • can rhyme or be free verse
  • "decorations" of pictures, etc can earn some extra credit (but is NOT more important than the poem
Good luck!

Homework 11/16

Don't forget to brainstorm you Thanksgiving imagery!  You need to have 3 examples for each of the senses (so 15 total).  And remember, you are writing "word pictures," not drawing actual pictures.   ;)

Homework 11/15

Don't forget to do the rhyme scheme for "Respiration" and "The Weaver".  (I know you may not "know it," but try to look for the end rhymes and we will review first thing tomorrow!)  We will be moving into imagery with Langston Hughes and Biggie tomorrow...and don't forget to be thinking of Thanksgiving sensory details for your imagery poems!

Your final drafts of the "Beauty" projects are due TOMORROW (Tuesday)!!!!  And don't forget if you are going to take advantage of a little bit of amnesty you have to turn in your Up questions tomorrow.  (Remember, you will not get even close to full credit, but some is better than none, so take me up on it!)  Also, periods 5-7, your notebooks are due again.  (1, 3-4, you can turn yours in for late credit tomorrow ONLY!)  Good luck!

If you came looking for me this afternoon...I had to run into the building really quick and got pulled into a quick "meeting."  I was back outside at about 4:20.  I will be around tomorrow if anyone needs me!
