The research article is due on Thursday/Friday, the 28th and 29th. If you know you won't be here, please send it early so you can get adequate feedback. After seeing some of your articles, I hope that many of you choose to take the chance and submit your article for publication. It's very cool to see your name in print.
Everyone should have a copy of Huck Finn that they are reading feverishly. As you read, don't forget that in each chapter, you must find: A theme, an example of characterization, a figure of speech, and a particularly potent passage. This will help you as you start your Huck Finn Project next week.
Don't forget! The first quiz for Huck Finn is February 1st and 2nd.
Other dates to keep in mind... Feb 1 and 2 is registration in your history classes. Feb 2, 3, and 4, Sophomores will be taking the UBSCT test. If you have passed that test, you get to sleep in a bit - school will start about 9:45 those three days.
