English 8 – Friday, March 20th

Nothing new today – just reminders about what should be going on.

  • No weekend plans?  Make some time to read – about 20 minutes per day.
  • Also start thinking about topics you might like to explore for your multi-genre paper.  We’ll be putting these to paper next week & sharing them.
  • If you didn’t read “Crafting Narrative” or take a look at the multi-genre example papers, give that a go (some of my videos were accidentally set to “hidden” so they weren’t visible to you.  Check out the Flipgrid (code rcmg20) to watch them & look at the posts from the last couple of days to check them out in more detail.
  • Enjoy the great booktalks already posted and add yours to Flipgrid.
  • And finish up any missing DRAFTs from earlier in the semester if needed.  (You should have DRAFT#1 – indelible moment, DRAFT#2 – photo memoir, DRAFT#3 – cited commentary of a TEDtalk, & DRAFT#4 – book review/book club reflection).

PLEASE take a look at these papers so you are not confused as to what multi-genre can be, how it can look, and where you might take it.  This thinking will help you as you begin to develop your own topic possibilities. *Note that these papers do not specifically fit your criteria (they are just about getting a feel for multi-genre).


English 8: DRAFT#3 was due Monday “teacher-ready” and we wrote DRAFT#4 in class last Friday.  Finish up either as needed ASAP.  If the lack of papers in your draft folder is affecting your course grade, get them done, email me to let me know, and I can make adjustments.  SPECIAL NOTE FOR ENGLISH 8:  If for any reason you have trouble using MSWord and need to type documents in Google docs, that’s fine for now – just make it happen.  If Dropbox won’t let you upload Googledocs then just email them to me and I’ll figure it out.
