Ms. Strahan's English II Class

Monday, May 14th

Hello all,

I’m sorry I can’t come in today; I’m feeling under the weather.

Warmup: Please share your introduction paragraph and two body paragraphs with me immediately. I’ll give you a 10 minute time stamp from the tardy bell to get your life together. Anything submitted after the 10 minute period will be considered late.

You need to continue to work on your paper. I am giving you class time to complete this, so please use your time wisely.

You should finish your body paragraphs (all except counter argument paragraph) today. These will be due by the time you walk in next class. We will review counter argument paragraphs next class, but if you want to take the intiative, feel free to start on that.

I will try to post comments on your papers throughout the day so please check your doc as the day continues.

Please be on your best behavior and make me proud.

Kind regards,

Ms. Strahan

4A on 5/3 and Their Eyes Were Watching God Essay Prompts

4A: Warm-Up: Make sure all NoRedInk assignments are complete!!!!!!!!

Please begin working on your MLA paper for TEWWG. The essay topics are listed below. You must SELECT ONE! Remember, as you pull quotes from your book (or the online text on my website), you want to make sure you write down the page number you grabbed it from-even in your preliminary work. It is a lot harder to go back and find something after you have searched multiple pages for excerpts/quotes that support your opinion. You need to start writing your paper on the doc we created TOGETHER-which already has your format set up for you. Remember to write a correct title. You need to share this doc with me immediately so I can monitor your work. Remember, absolutely NO CELL PHONES out during this time. Please respect the teacher who is helping me out and taking you in. You must report to the teacher I assigned you to! Please be on your best behavior! Love you all!

Kind regards,

Ms. Strahan
