Tweeting about Frankenstein

Text-Based Analysis Paragraphs are due Wednesday

Here is the Tweeting assignment, in case you missed it.

Here is the text-based analysis assignment again.  Make sure that you do the chart BEFORE you begin to write the paragraphs.  Follow the directions!!!  It will count as two quiz grades and it will be collected on Wednesday.

How did it go?

Reflect upon your responses.

Look through your notes and consider what worked and what didn’t.  Add depth if necessary and explore new avenues that have not been explored in today’s discussion.  

Also, Chapters XI and XII are due for tomorrow (although they will not be discussed) and Chapters XIII and XIV are due for Friday.  By Monday, you will have to have read through Chapters XV and XVI.  Stay on top of your reading!  

In the Box/Out of the Box

Read and QCOP "A New Life"

Come to class prepared to isolate one specific portion of the story and connecti it directly to a secondary source.  The source should be a song, a movie, another work of literature, a period in history, a histrical figure, or anything else that illustrates your understanding of the text and authorial intent.  Your response should be enlightening and IT SHOULD BE OUT OF THE BOX!  Common connections will not earn your props.  The deeper you go, the more significant your response is.  Surprise your classmates and get ready to GET OUT OF THE BOX!!!

For Thursday, you must read and QCOP XI and XII.

Read IX and X and do the response

Print "A New Life" to put into your notes...

Here is the link to “A New Life” which you responded to and I read aloud in class.  Here is the homework sheet that connects to tonight’s reading of IX and X.

Tomorrow is my Challenge Day

There will be a sub...

Please make sure you give your new Historical Fiction outline to the sub (new one stapled to the old one).  If there is no sub, please submit your new outline stapled to your old outline to the teacher on duty in the English study center and ask them to please place it on my desk.  You are responsible for turning this in to me FRIDAY—whether there is a sub or not.  I will come to my desk at the end of the day and collect all the outlines that are there so I can grade them this weekend and get them back to you by Monday.

Tonight, you will need to fill in the character chart for Elizabeth and Henry Clerval.  

Tomorrow, in class, you will be given an opportunity to read and QCOP Chapters III and IV.  Finish the reading and annotating, as well as these questions, for Monday.

Read and QCOP Chapters I and II

Remember: consider Authorial Intent & the conflict between the Industial Era and the Romantic Period...

The stranger tells his tale from the beginning in an attempt to warn Walton.  “…let me reveal my tale, and you will dash the cup from your lips!”
