ICYMI: Presentation Sign-Up Is Monday

Black kitten with caption, It's Friday the 13th? Oh no. I has to be evil today.Presentation sign-up will be on Monday. Be in class and ready to choose your time slot when the sign-up form opens. In your presentation, you will show off your project, talking about what you did and why you did it. It’s okay if your project isn’t quite finished. You will present whatever you have.

"The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" as a Comic

Here’s a marvelous remix of T. S. Eliot’s "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock" as a comic by Julian Peters. On the site, you will find a few other literary comics.

Work Day

Spend your time in class today working on whatever part of your project you need to. I’ll help with any questions. Remember that effort is part of the calculation for your grade, so be sure that you are working!
