testing today & tomorrow

Due to testing, the next post (April 25/26) will apply to all periods (p.2 today; p.3&4 tomorrow; p.6, I will email your essay prompt later today).  Whenever you show up for our class period, you will take the lit terms quiz (on terms 31-60) and the Macbeth essay.  Please do the journal for HW.  Friday 4/27 will be business as usual.


  1. I'm not sure if you forgot about me or if you sent me the email to another address, but I haven't received the essay prompt.

  2. I, too, haven't received the prompt via email.

  3. Hi Everyone,
    I apologize-- I didn't have everyone's email (and Alex's is apparently still being hijacked by...?), so here is the essay topic. Please alert your period 6 colleagues. We will do the lit terms quiz first thing in class tomorrow (Friday).

    Novels and plays often include scenes of weddings, funerals, parties, and other social occasions. Such scenes may reveal the values of the characters and the society in which they live. Select a novel or play that includes such a scene and, in a focused essay, discuss the contribution the scene makes to the meaning of the work as a whole. Please analyze/apply these concepts to Shakespeare's Macbeth.

  4. ... and Betzy, how could ANYONE forget about you?
