Due 11/14: WAYG Paragraph and Butterflies

1. WAYG Paragraph–This paragraph will be evaluated using the same questions we used in class. I will also consider grammar and style when grading (pay attention to use of “to be” verbs). You are expected to turn in your outline as well. Format for paragraph:

  • Typed (You must give me a hard copy. Do not submit it electronically.)
  • Double spaced
  • Arial, Cambria, Times New Roman (or equivalent) font style
  • Use proper MLA in text citations. See sample paragraph discussed in class today (with the exception of the last quote). No comma between author’s last name and page number.
  • Include a title that reflects the theme of the paragraph (i.e. A paragraph focusing on music may have the following title: Music and the Loss of Innocence). With that title, I already have a sense of what the paragraph is about.
  • Heading should go in upper left corner and be single spaced. Heading:

Your Name
English 1B

2. You are turning in your copy of Where are You Going, Where Have you Been?

3. Butterflies–read and annotate Chapter 3.

Due 11/14: 1984

1. 1984–Read and annotate Chapter 6-9 (Stop on p. 184 just before Goldstein’s Book).

2. Keep in mind:

  • Annotations for Politics and the English Language should have been submitted.
  • Precis hard copies should have been given to me. In the future, all typed work must be presented to me in hard copy.
  • Participation grades will be updated today.
  • First two precis for ASC (Art as Social Commentary) are due 12/1.
