Due 12/1: 1984 and More…

There are many things on your “plate.” So, pay very close attention to due dates, folks! 

3rd and final draft is due one week after you get your graded 2nd draft. You MUST TURN IN YOUR GRADED 2ND DRAFT WITH THE 3RD DRAFT.

UPDATE: Due Date for the final Creative Project has been pushed back to 12/15!

Due 12/1

1. 1984—Part II, Chapters 1-3. Annotate! (This reading is due 12/2 for 10B)
2. Class Forum—Vocab Word Posting
3. Art as Social Commentary–Final two précis!

Based on your first precis, here are some thoughts:

  • Precis should be SINGLE SPACED.
  • Some of you still get the heading wrong. Now that we are in the second quarter, you are now penalized every time you get it wrong. Pay attention to the little things.
  • You must turn in a hard copy of your source with the precis. I cannot grade it otherwise. Be sure the hard copy is highlighted/underlined. I want to get a sense of your engagement with the original source.
  • Your precis should not be one paragraph. Use paragraphs to organize the source details in your precis.

Due 12/5

1. 1984–Chapters 4-7!
2. Class Forum—Write one discussion question born out of the first 6 chapters of Part II of the novel. In a complete paragraph (featuring a topic sentence and evidence) answer the question. Every one should be prepared to lead a class discussion.

Due 12/6

1. 1984–Chapter 8

Due 12/7

1. 1984–PP. 179-201 (Stop with Ignorance is Strength)

Due 12/8

1. 1984–Complete Chapter 9
2. Class Forum—Based upon my comments on your essay, sum up your writing strengths and weaknesses.
