August 27

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "Early Morning Wake Up Call" by The Hives; "Early in the Morning" by Ray Charles]

Today is the first "early out" on our calendar. Some say this is a bad idea (given all the demands on our already-crowded learning time). Others say this is a good idea (given that they'd rather be anywhere else in the universe besides school). What is your opinion of early outs? What will you do with the time?

1. Journal/return work/review Beowulf HW on blogs
2. Vocabulary: Fall List #3
3. Have you recited "Laughing Heart"?
4. Status: resumes & peer editing

1. Post vocabulary definitions/sentences
2. Bring hard copy of resume draft to class tomorrow (Tuesday, 8.28)


  1. I'm a little confused on where you think we might have made a resume sophomore year because I just remember job resumes not scholarship ones.

  2. The resume you wrote sophomore year was for a job-- since this is for a different purpose and has a different format, I said I would proofread either or both if you brought them tomorrow.
