Apologies for prior post. Wrong class.

Okay all I am going to talk to groups first. And then everyone individually, making sure that I have a paper from you (or will by 10). Your work IS NOT TURNED IN until I say that I have it okay? Please make sure that you have the script completed withe names up top and an appropriate file name. Please make sure that your name is on your paper too. I will also need something clearly saying who did what on the project.

I will be by soon!

Hello all. This is a reminder to all that you HAVE to chat with me during the final. You are REQUIRED to show up. I will verify that I have your paper. I will also make sure that your group work is done and that I have a sheet saying who did what in the group work. I will start this process at 7:30. And that is it! Looking forward to talking to you all! You will have until 10:00 to get everything in. Remember too those things that need to be up on your community page.

Hello all,

This is a reminder that our next class IS our final. Your group work and final paper will be due. TTU has us listed for 7:30-10 p.m. I will, of course, give you all the way until 10 p.m. to turn everything in. But what if you've already turned everything in? Well thank you for one! And I am grading those now. But I STILL need for you to "show" up to the final. It will be a short chat. I will go through the list and confirm with you that I have your final and your group work. This is required by TTU. So be available.

I've been chatting with many of you about paper questions. A lot of them look so very good!

Remember that I am here to help. Please just don't leave it until the very last moment though okay?

Your group work should be done by now in order to stay on schedule. Remember to give the recorder a enough time to get the recording done. This is very important. Work on it now if you haven't gotten your part done.

Remember too that these things need to be up on your community pages. This is your 4th reminder about this. Remember that I will read through it all before I read your paper.


1. First Paragraph Work (Station Eleven)
2. Midterm
3. Beloved Quotes
4. Theme Research Work (short stories from anthology)
5. Podcast Work
6. Stated theme/technique
7. Story of My Teeth Quotes.

I want to make sure that everyone understands the difference between secondary source quotes and direct quotes.

Secondary sources are from articles that are about your book, theme, or technique. These will probably come from the library or library website. You will need TWO quotes.

Direct quotes come from the books themselves. There is no minimum requirement for how many you need, but all good arguments employ direct quotes to support what is being said.

Okay everyone. Use this time to finish your group script please. I want to have them done by the end of class.

I am finishing conferences now and will be by to answer any questions.

Jacob.

Dear Group,

By the end of class today I would like to see your complete script (or as complete as you can make it). Remember that this will be the full transcript of what is to be read on the podcast. I will come and visit each group to answer questions, but be sure to WORK on completing your portion of the script if you haven't

Remember too that these things need to be up on your community page:

1. First Paragraph Work (Station Eleven) 
2. Midterm 
3. Beloved Quotes 
4. Theme Research Work (short stories from anthology) 
5. Podcast Work 
6. Stated theme/technique
7. Story of My Teeth Quotes.

Okay I am going to go by the groups now. I will focus on the intro to your group work and see how group work is going (be sure to ask questions if you have them). I will then answer all paper questions (please read paper outline in the prior post now if you haven't).  

I would like you to: 

Please post the theme or technique you think you will be looking for in the paper on your wall. This CAN CHANGE. I just want it up there so everything is very clear when you need conferences/help. Doing this counts towards homework. 

"QUIZ" Assignment:  
 
You will need to post 7 quotes that highlight your theme/technique from STORY of MY TEETH. Do this in the same way you did the Beloved Quotes. Again, this is so we can have everything together. As this is also proof to me that you read, doing this counts towards a quiz grade. Remember to pull quotes from the breadth of the novel. Have this up your community by MONDAY MAY 9. 

Dates of last two assignments in this class: 

Remember that BOTH your Paper and your Group Work are due during the Final on May 12. Turning them in will be your final. The TTU mandated cutoff for this period is 10 p.m.  Schedule yourself accordingly.  

Next week we will check in with how both the papers and the groupwork is going. There will nothing more due than what is outlined here. 

Thank you, 
Jacob

Dear All, 

Be sure to use this time to work on your group work. Make sure you have your third source, pick if you are going to have 1 or more readers, and set a good calendar to get things done.
