August 24

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "Reflections (I Remember)" by Mary J. Blige; "Short Memory" by Midnight Oil]

When we read we make connections between the text and what we already know.  Sometimes we find ourselves surprised when a book calls to mind an old memory we haven't thought about in a long time.  What are your earliest memories?  What makes some things impossible to remember and other things impossible to forget?

1. Journal
2. Vocab quiz/correct
3. Posting essays for peer editing
4. Beowulf work

1. Finish the Beowulf questions and post the answers to your blog.  At the beginning, please describe how you went about it (whether you worked individually or in a group, in person or online, how much time it took, etc.)
2. Post your writing to your portfolio or your blog and recruit five peers to read your work and give you feedback.  Create a post on your blog entitled "Peer Feedback #1" in which you invite those who read your work to comment about where you're strong and where you need to improve.
3. Read your peers' work and do the same for them.
