Wednesday we will learn to analyze and take notes on a poem on Love and Thursday we will learn to analyze and take notes on  a song about Love. Friday we will type up our notes on information we gathered on Romantic Love. All missed work can be found in class in the absent folders at the back of the room.

    For the next 3 days, we are reading and discussing our plays in class. We will be taking notes for an upcoming essay and we will be creating study guides for a test at the end of the play. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT ALL STUDENTS READ AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE CLASS DISCUSSION IN THESE 3 DAYS FOR CLASS PARTICIPATION POINTS. IF YOU DO NOT CONTRIBUTE IN ANY WAY, YOUR SCORE WILL BE A ZERO.

    Students: DO NOT THROW AWAY ANY NOTES OR STUDY GUIDE QUESTIONS FOR THE TEST! YOU WILL NEED YOUR NOTES FOR YOUR ESSAY AND TEST! KEEP THEM ALL TOGETHER IN ONE LOCATION IN YOUR BINDER!
