Homework 02/28/17

Hey, amazing students!

Your homework for tonight is as follows:

601/602/701: Continue revising your essay based on my feedback, peer feedback, your Essay Writing Checklist, your Guidance Worksheet (if you received one) and your notes from class. Also: Make sure you get your Parent Communication sheet signed!

PARENTS: Please make sure that you review your child’s grade and assignment(s) in their red folders.

Remember, this is what I am expecting from you (students) on Thursday 03/02/17 (Friday 03/03/17 for 701):

  1. Final typed draft (in same format as the rough draft).
  2. A sheet listing all the changes (revisions) you made in your final draft. You may list these in bullet form. Be specific, and refer to examples throughout your paper (example: “In my conclusion, I added more details about how the elements and theme I’ve chosen connect to the myth, etc.”)
  3. Your original rough draft with my (and your peers’) feedback on it.
  4. Your original essay graphic organizer (which you filled out in class before drafting the essay).
  5. The Essay Writing Checklist I handed out before you submitted the rough drafts.
  6. (6th grade only) The Prometheus Essay Guiding Worksheet you might have received. If you received one of these, you must complete it fully. Then, you will type up all your sentences in order, organize them by paragraph, and make this your new final draft

IF YOU DO NOT HAVE ALL OF THESE THINGS ON THURSDAY (FRIDAY FOR 701), I WILL NOT ACCEPT YOUR ESSAY AND YOU WILL LOSE -2 POINTS FOR LATENESS, AND AN ADDITIONAL -4 IF YOU ARE HERE AND FORGET TO SUBMIT IT ON FRIDAY (-4 POINTS BY DEFAULT FOR 701 IF I DON’T RECEIVE IT THEN)!

That’s all. Enjoy your evening!
