When you’re lost, here’s a spot for us to grasp at that lifeline. If you have a question post it here and then we’ll all work together to try to float you a life raft.
I thought that the virtue essay was due on the 9th?
I don’t see any due date for virtue essay. The 12th would be convenient though.
So is it tomorrow or monday?
@Mr. Eldridge, are you going to be here on MLK day conferencing with people about their book reviews? If you are, what hours are you going to be here? I ask this question because I signed up on MLK day not knowing it was MLK day because I saw that only one person signed up on Monday, giving me more time to conference. LIttle did I know that there was a good reason for the dearth of people conferencing on Monday. Also, do you think that the great man’s memory should be honored by sitting idly at home procrastinating and kvetching about the amount of homework we haven’t done, all the while having a pre-inauguration soirée, or should it be honored by going to school and discussing our books like industrious little scholars?
Honestly, @Dylan, with all due respect, I don’t care how you spend your MLK day. I will be grading and then probably grading some more. I vow to be caught up… I just don’t want it to kill me.
If your book review is complete, I suggest a soiree. That is why we work so hard to get things done on time. (I never studied during finals week in college b/c I worked so hard at keeping up during the class… that is, once I learned how to do it.)
Also, can you email me your TSL essay? Thanks.
By any chance does anyone know what EAA, chs. are. On the calender it says that we are supposed to begin reading them.
EAA= Everything’s an Argument, we got it in the beginning of the year. But I didn’t know anything about beginning to read it yet.
i dont have an EAA or EEA or whatever its called… how do i get 1??? whut are we supposed to do with it anyway???
I’m pretty sure it’s “Everything’s An Argument” but he never told our class to read it or anything.
I thought Mr. E said that we might not even get to that this year, and now it’s become some sort of priority?
I am afraid.
It’s on the calendar. Read it. It’s not hard. We will use the ideas to analyze some of the speeches in HAMLET.
And you get it from the library or Amazon.com.
how do we do the venn diagrams for the syllogism?
i don’t know really. i ran into the same problem. then tried to do tomorrow’s homework and ran into it again. too bad.
since our homework is to write the paragraphs about the green packet passages and our responses are not being collected but we review the passages in class……. should we revise the original writings or not?
@CALLIE Aaker, It will be collected in the end. Will your answers be better if you revise? Will you learn more? Will you retain more?
These are the questions you should ask if you don’t know whether to do something or not.
is the proposal presentation this friday a homework assignment or something we’re doing in class??
o and were we supposed to do another “ethos or pathos?” thing from the green packet?
I’m confused … What exactly is due this friday involving the 75 points assignment? aka; argumentative research paper. Is it just step 1 (which includes; 1.reader response journal, 2.identifying arguments, 3.style glossary, and 4.research questions) or is it everything: step 1 compose a research question, step 2 conduct research, step 3 make a claim and step 4 begin writing?
@Sheleneee, Just page 1. Doing the whole research thing is for after the break.
Is homework Civil Disobedience AND Gatsby Ch. 1 – 2 or just Civil Disobedience?
[jordan's comment] + are we supposed to be working on the project essay thing???
wahh…i’m so confusssseeedddd
@CALLIE Aaker, Do not do anything Callie! Put down the English homework before anybody gets hurt. Okay? That’s it. Just slowly put it to the ground. That’s right. Easy to the ground. Now just turn and walk away…
it’s so hard!
Should we continue reading Gatsby like the calendar says?
Or are we going to delay the book for a little bit so that we can work on our research projects?
@Henry Kim, Delay.
When are those research projects due?
@SHAINA DENNY!, Oh, you know, whenever
I’ll let you know soon.
Does anyone know if we are supposed to buy Grendel?
And do we just read the Great Gatsby every night or are there questions as well?
Grendel is optional. I suggest it, but you don’t have to.
Just read Gatsby. A sophisticated class discussion should do; take notes on these discussions.
Also I would read the notes on Mr. Eldridge’s website for each chapter. They will provide key cultural background and it will ensure that you are picking up on the right things.
