Assignments Week of 9/9
Sunday, September 8, 2013
Please note that the Grapes of Wrath reading schedule is a separate entry on the message board.
Monday: Chapters 1 and 3 contain many poetic descriptive passages. Choose a subject from one of these chapters--the land, the sky, the wind, the dust, the families, the turtle, etc.--and create a found poem on that subject. Found poems use the author's words and phrases, but the poet takes license in rearranging, clipping, and forming a poetic structure. Type your poem or handwrite it beautifully on a clean, blank sheet of paper. Give your poem a creative title. These will be displayed.
Tuesday: Vocabulary and grammar sentences due Friday.
Wednesday: Submit your top three choices for research topics tomorrow; complete Chapters 4-6 for tomorrow's discussion.
Thursday: See Tuesday's assignment.
Friday: Vocabulary and grammar quiz on first 10 words from Grapes of Wrath list and subject-verb agreement Tuesday.
