We will be in the library learning about Weebly website building and working on developing the Beowulf sites you research and reported on over the last two weeks. You've already submitted the link to your PUBLISHED site last week (to Classroom). Submit your blog posts and annotated bibs on lit crib. in ONE doc to TII by midnight, Friday. The Bewulf sites and content are worth 100 pts.
Annotated Bibliography: info here and here
Submit to TII by noon on Friday
Beowulf Website draft:
Because Progress reports are coming up I MUST have something in to show you are making adequate progress on your site. At a minimum, you must have:
In library again today
OWL (Online Writing Lab) web quest: resource site of for research and term papers, MLA/APA formatting, etc.
Time to work on the two library research practice sheets (due by Friday or sooner)
Time to begin the OWL test (due Friday or sooner)
Time to work on research for your SP
Time to work on your Beowulf Weebly sites.
Sample essays below show the revision process when you are asked to use existing work and incorporate it into a new prompt:
Today we continue in the library with SP research.
Also, research for your Beowulf sites. Submit your final rewrite essays to "REVISION 1" in TII by 11:59 PM tonight!
This week we will meet in the library so Mrs. Forbes can teach about finding college level research results for your SP and other essays. There will be time to work on finding sources for your SP, working on your "Monster" revision essay, etc.
We will also work more with Weebly and have time to work on your Beowulf sites.
Using what you've already written in your summer essay regarding "Who is the Monster" in Frankenstein, revise and add to the essay:
1) Apply the analytical style presented in "How to Read Literature Like a College Professor" to your original Frankenstein essay “Who is the Monster”.
2) Then tie the intellectual growth of either Victor or the Creature to Plato’s analogy of The Cave. In general, what equates to: The shadows, puppeteers, chains broken, coming into starlight, adjustment to sun, and return to the cave.
You may (should?) use large portions of your original essay as the basis for your re-analysis. You do not need to quote your original work when incorporating it into your new essay.
Due to TII by Sept 11.
Be aware, this essay will be peer reviewed/edited prior to brining it to final draft in time for first quarter report cards.
Intro to your SP term paper:
WHY are you doing this particular project? (certification? career interest? personal passion?)
WHAT is your physical project? (the outcome... what will you produce?)
Your background and/or existing knowledge base (what do you already know about this topic/what skills do you already possess?)
How/why is your project a learning stretch vs something you already know how to do, do on a regular basis, or would be doing anyway as part of a class/club/etc?
Your working thesis.
Begin discussion of the Epic Hero, his traits, what he represents (a society's hopes and best it can be) and how the "monster" represents our fears and negative traits.
Tuesday we begin a close reading of the text. This is one of the few times I'll monopolize lit discussion (just showing you what I want).
Wyrd, weirguild, Beowulf's background, and a little about Old English.
