Dickens Points and Project

I was a little disappointed with the lackluster showing of English 8 students’ projects, so we took today to give some students another chance to turn the project in for reduced credit.

English I students had a quick look at Dickens’s use of dialect and split dialog as well as an additional comprehension assignment for each chapter.

Fourth period notes

Students are to choose one medium to long sentence to write out and annotate as we did in class today.

Third period notes
  • English 8 Studies: none.
  • English I Honors: 
    • read through chapter 10 by next Monday;
    • annotate one sentence per chapter.
Comment Policy

We welcome comments from readers, but like most websites, we have some guidelines for commenting. Above all, avoid comments that are filled with profanity and aim simply to insult. When we receive such comments, we publish them after redacting the profanity, and then we reply, usually with a critique of your use of language and sometimes with some grammar tips. In addition, we might share your email address publicly in the event that you leave a comment that does not conform to our comment policy (see above). We do this as a service: if you are leaving such comments, you likely need help with your writing (how to express anger without using profanity) and/or your social skills (knowing when a comment needs to be shared and when it needs to stay inside your own thoughts). We will sometimes publish your email in the response to your comment so that other readers can email you to offer their help as well. Some visitors might find that this makes them look foolish. Readers who wish to avoid looking foolish, therefore, should not submit such comments.
