Juniors and Seniors, please do not forget that the College Counseling Workshop will be presented on Saturday, September 29th from 9:00 to noon. Please RSVP to let me know to expect you as I will have breakfast as well as notebooks with some valuable information for you, so I need to be sure that I have enough for everyone!
Advanced Composition: You need to finish reading When the Emperor was Divine as your critique for this novel is due on Friday, September 28th. I will pick up your Reading Journals this week as well. Our subject this week is Chapter 11 in our textbook, "Cause and Effect," so please make sure that you have skimmed this chapter.
Art History: We will turn now to the Medieval and Early Renaissance, beginning this week with Byzantine art and finishing with Romanesque painting.
Creative Writing: We are definitely having to make some changes due to the size of the class! So, instead of word boxes this wee, we will work on a travel diary assignment which will be due on October 23rd. Hopefully you will find this to be an enjoyable assignment!
Film as Literature: Well, Jurassic Park III put us behind a bit, so we will review Chapter 2: "Narration" on Thursday, after we finish watching The Wizard of Oz and Pride and Prejudice. So we will NOT have the Chapter 2 quiz until next Tuesday, October 2nd. We will review chapter 3: "Mise-en-Scene" next week, and then we should be back on schedule! Don't forget your Contemporary Film Review assignment....
Fundamentals of Composition: This week we will look at Chapter 4: "Revising and Editing your Paper." You should have read through this chapter before class on Monday. Additionally, you need to finish up with your reading of The Alchemist this week as you have a critique due for this novel on Friday, October 5th! I will pick up Reading Journals this week as well, so you should have these up to date....
Publications & Media: Yes! We have the 2010-2011 yearbook completed and set up for burning to DVD-ROM. So, this week we will burn the copies and get them packaged and distributed. Don't forget, our goal date for the 2011-2012 yearbook is October 19th for Grandparents' Day!

This is a B week. and we are nearly half way through the first quarter! Make sure that you are on track with reading assignments and due dates for written work as it is all too easy to get behind at this point and end up with a lower than expected grade for first quarter.
