We will be working on the paper for the next few weeks; please pay attention to all due dates listed in iTunesU.. Steps will be discussed as we move through the process - each step is worth 50 points (completed on time) for a total of 300 points. You will lose 10 points each day a step in the process is late. The Final Paper is worth 500 points.
Please utilize resources on iTunes U as you move through the writing process. Each class day will include a mini-lesson but the majority of class time will be devoted to the writing process.
Make sure to sign up for a writing conference by 2/15. Writing conferences run 2/26 - 3/8 with times in the morning and afternoon.
The final paper is due 3/11 to make time for writing conferences - you may pass it in well before when your essay is complete beginning 2/28. PLEASE submit it to both iTunes U AND TurnItIn.
Honors Jr. English
Honors Junior English focuses on the study of American Literature. We will be looking to see how literature reflects our culture and traditions, belief systems and various perspectives by focusing on the concept of the American Dream and how the individual defines identity in our society. As we do so, we will also be focused on academic writing, moving from writing literary analysis to using critical theory to writing a critical literary analysis based upon academic reading and research.
