Well, today was the big day! Students were assigned the Dreaded Fold-A-Book. This is the hardest, most complicated thing we do all year. No worries. If you pace yourself and don't procrastinate, you will be fine! I'm emailing parents with a copy of the assignment so they can commiserate with you. If you need a copy, email me and I will send it to you as an attachment.
Second period: You need to be ready to present on September 22nd. Remember that you owe me a summary of the poetry collection you have read at that time, too (that's the one with the asterisk). The Fold-A-Book itself is due on October 7th. That's the day that YOU MUST BE HERE in order to help evaluate books.
Sixth and eighth periods: Your due dates are September 23rd for the presentations and October 8th for the books.
Avoid the honors flu! Get started right away and do your best! You will survive this and feel like a superhero for doing something difficult well.
By the way, if you know you will be absent (wedding, vacation, operation, etc.) be sure to send the book so it can be evaluated.
Let me know if you have questions.
