September 27

JOURNAL TOPIC: [today's tunes: "We Are the Champions" by Queen; "The Real Me" by Johnny Adams; "Who Are You" by Tom Waits]

What's the difference between who you are and who you want to be?

1. Journal
2. An epic is a poem
3. Personal statements
4. A word (several, actually) about scholarships
5. Chaucer's dead
6. Characterization (I-V) revisions/exit tickets
7. This agenda is long

1. Study for vocab test Fri
2. Answer these "Pre-Will"questions in a post on your blog: a) What do you know about Hamlet, the "Melancholy Dane"?  b) What do you know about Shakespeare?  c) Why do so many students involuntarily frown when they hear the name "Shakespeare"?  and d) What can we do to make studying this play an amazing experience we'll never forget?


  1. So I am just wondering. But why do teachers call things exit tickets. I mean either way we are going to leave if we have them or not. Where did that saying even come from?
