Homework 10/30

I gave you an extra day to do that storyboard, so get it done tonight if you haven't already...no more extensions!  Also, 3/4 periods notebooks due tomorrow (Wed) and 6/7 due Thursday, so make sure they are taped down and ready to go.  (1/2, if you need to turn yours in late, tomorrow is the day!)

Homework and Reminders 10/29

HOMEWORK tonight is to finish the storyboard you started in class.   Remember that there are 5 boxes on the bottom of Mitty's daydreams and 4 on the top for his real life.  Pictures, quotes, and color are necessary in the boxes and the theme/explanation of non linear plot importance on the back!

REMINDERS: You will take a quiz on "...Walter Mitty" tomorrow, so the storyboard is a helpful review!  IANs are due this week (pp. 28-39).  1st/2nd tomorrow, 3rd/4th Wednesday, and 6th/7th on Thursday, so make sure they are ready!  

Carpe diem, minions, and get everything together and turned in!

One Pagers (summative grade) due Monday!

Don't forget to finish your one-pagers this weekend.  They are due at the BEGINNING of class!  Have a great weekend...Carpe Diem! ;)

Wednesday, October 17, 2012


In the interest of doing better on the summative grade and making sure you REALLY get it (and since I am not going to be at school tomorrow to help), I am moving the due date to MONDAY for the one pagers.  That means tomorrow's 9-Week Exam is your last grade of the 9 weeks!!  Make sure you try hard and get your rough drafts together so I can give you guidance on them Friday!  I hope this helps, and good luck on the test...CARPE DIEM!!!

10/16 Reminders

Tomorrow is PSAT/Field Day in the morning, so make sure you report to the proper place (auditorium for field day, various classrooms for PSAT--see library windows for your room).  As of right now, you should be working on your One-Pager.  However, the due date may be moved to Monday (since I won't be seeing morning classes again until Friday).  If that happens, it will not be put on this 9 weeks' grade.  Either way, make sure you do your best on the CBA type test with the substitute on Thursday (because that one WILL be on this 9 weeks), and on the One-Pager (whenever it is due b/c it will still be a summative!)  That is all for now!  :D
