Today, we reviewed Act I (scenes 1-3) of Julius Caesar in preparation for tomorrow's quiz. You can access the play on-line using this link (http://www.folgerdigitaltexts.org/html/JC.html) if you need to review/prepare this evening. Remember that journals for all three scenes and questions are due after you take the quiz.
Also, if you missed class the Friday before break, you have a vocabulary quiz and a literary terms quiz to make up. Please make time to stop by any day this week before or after school to take both quizzes.

I have to be out of the classroom today, so a guest teacher will be leading you today. Please follow the steps below to be prepared for Friday's class.
If your name is left by the substitute teacher indicating that you were a distraction today, you will forfeit the extra credit that I offered for last Friday's vocabulary quiz.
1.) Read and take detailed notes on pages 769-770 in the Literature Textbook (The section entitled "The Play: The Results of Violence"
2.) Read "Make the Connection" on page 774 of the textbook. Answer all five of the Quickwrite questions in your journal. I am expecting you to really develop your thinking on each question, bringing in modern day or historical comparisons when appropriate. Each question should be followed by a response that is at least 4-5 sentences in length.
3.) When you finish responding to all five questions in your journal, you may use the rest of the class time to work on your sonnet. Remember they must be typed and printed before class tomorrow. They must also be submitted electronically to turnitin.com by midnight Friday night.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to email me. See you tomorrow!
