I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Friday, 10/20 Early Release
Day 38, Sem. 1
Since all classes were short today and our 3rd period attended an assembly instead of coming to class, I treated 1st and 4th periods as time to work on homework assignments, primarily annotating and finding evidence of rhetorical appeals in the student's chosen funeral speech from Julius Caesar (this will provide the necessary prewriting for the analysis essay we will compose in class next week). Students could also read in Things Fall Apart to stay on track with the assigned reading schedule (chapters 1-3 by today/Friday, chapters 4-6 by Monday).
Homework: Finish speech annotation, finding examples of rhetoric in the funeral speech. Read through chapter 6 in Things Fall Apart.
