Diagramming Setnences in class; reading the summer reading packet outside of class


Monday, September 25th...

Please remember that on that day, I will be collecting your summer reading packet annotations and QCOPs.  Print out the packet first and pelase write your annotations and QCOPs directly onto the stapled packet. 

The diagramming packet is here in case you have lost it or accidentally left it at school.


Summer Reading Anthology


Click below for the Summer Reading Anthology and Due Dates

The Summer Reading novel, The Curious Incident of the Dog in  Night-time, must be read by Monday, September 25th.  At that time, I will also be collecting your annotations for the attached summer reading anthology.  Soon after, you will be writing a in-class DBQ response for the novel and the affilitated readings.  You will be able to use both the text and the annotations to write the response.  

"My Life's Sentences" and Lahiri's stories


Read one of the four stories...

Tonight, you are to read either “A Temporary Matter,” “Sexy,” “Mrs. Sen’s,” or “This Blessed House” in Lahiri’s collection entitled Interpreter of Maladies.  Look for lines that are evocative and show authorial intent and attention to literary techniques.  Be prepared to share these findings tomorrow in class.

Welcome, Welcome, Welcome!!!


Tonight's Homework is Three-fold

For tonight, you need to do three things…

  1. You need to send a *p1 or *p9 email (depending upon which period you see me) to jgrgas@roslynschools.org.
  2. You need to explore this website and put a shortcut of it on your homescreen.  Have you read “About me!” above?
  3. You need to complete the Note Quote assignment I discussed in class today. Remember: The lined side must contain your name, my name, class with period, and date in the upper left-hand corner following the MLA format.  Then, the quote (no more than 3 lines), the author or speaker of the quote, and the source (novel, film—underlined or song—quotation marks)  On the rever, you are to do an in-depth analysis of the quotation using the Jhumpa Lahiri’s essay.  How did the words and sturcture help to make the lines stand out?  Did they “radiate with meaning”?  How?  This will be collected tomorrow.

Welcome to our class!
