Poetry and Chapter Four Complete

English 8 students finished chapter 4 in Nightjohn. We began a quiz that we’ll finish up tomorrow.

English I Honors students finished up “Because You Asked About the Line Between Prose and Poetry” as our introduction to poetry.

Students should now have some idea of how we’ll be looking at these poems through the rest of the unit.

Homework
  • English 8 Studies: none.
  • English I Honors: 
    • finish determining the part of speech of each word of the rest of the poem;
    • finish your assessments by tomorrow;
    • continue working on the final short story project;
    • continue working on the extra credit opportunity as necessary.
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.
