HW10 due 10/2 (10/3 for 10G): The Bell Jar, Chapters 5 and 6

NOTE: WHEN CHECKING THE WEBSITE FOR HW, YOU SHOULD VISIT THE SOPHOMORE HOMEPAGE TO ENSURE THERE IS NO CONFUSION WITH THE SENIOR CLASS HW.

1. The Bell Jar–Read and annotate Chapters 5 and 6.  Keep in mind that you are expected to annotate every night.  Do not go crazy annotating every page.  Focus your annotations and track a specific aspect of the text.  For instance, let’s focus tonight’s annotating on Buddy Willard and his relationship with Esther.  Note a few excerpts from the text that you think are critical to an understanding of this relationship.  Annotating does not merely mean, underlining or highlighting text.  I want to get a sense of what you are thinking…so briefly capture your thoughts or questions.

2. Goodreads thesis posting.

3. Detailed outlines due Thursday (Friday for 10G) (The link provides an example of how a detailed outline should look.  Follow the formatting and pay attention to the level of detail.  Other than roman numeral I, all other roman numerals should be accompanied by a topic sentence. Then, that roman numeral should be followed by a more detailed break down of the topic including evidence used and points raised in discussing the evidence.) So be detailed! The more detailed your outline the better your grade on this phase of the writing process and the less work you have to do on the first draft.

4. First drafts are due Monday (Tuesday for 10G)

5. Final drafts of your confessional poems are due Thursday (Friday for 10G). We will anonymously share them in class that day…squircle style!
