Day 1 Recap and Scribe

Welcome to Smith's English Literature Class! These scribe posts will be a source of information about the events of the day and upcoming homework assignments.

Today was the inevitable sharing of class policies and expectations that is characteristic of the first day of school. Don't forget to read over the information presented on the handout given to everyone at the beginning of class.

Now for homework...

There is a Google form that needs to be filled out by your parents, available here.

Also, there is a short essay due on Wednesday. Everyone must write one page, double spaced, in reaction to one of the quotes on the "Why Read?"paper.

Everyone needs to get a copy of the book Life of Pi by Friday. Also, bring some kind of makers to class by Friday.

Finally, everyone needs to make a post on the class blog by Friday about their expectations for this class. Further directions are on the website, just be sure to be thorough, connect to other posts, and proofread. The blog post is available here:

I'll see you all on Wednesday!
