We're English 10 Nerds and Loving It: April 17, 2014

Focus: How can we effectively synthesize The Truman Show and F451?

1. Warming up with our final (or almost final) round of book talks!

2. Finishing your outline; please see yesterday's blog for details and click HERE for the rubric

Today needs to be a quiet work day since you should no longer be in the brainstorming phase; you will receive a work habits grade for the day (10/10 = you were working quietly and staying on task the entire time).

3. Cleaning up the outline:

  • Does your document have an MLA heading and title?
  • Have you deleted the thesis statements that you're not using?
  • Have you italicized F451 and The Truman Show in your thesis and topic sentences?
  • Are your examples from F451 quotations?
  • Did you cite them properly?
  • Are your examples from The Truman Show specific?
  • Did you avoid "you" and "I" in your thesis and topic sentences?
  • Did you remember to offer a little brainstorming after each quote/example?
  • Have you proofread your outline carefully for grammar and punctuation?
  • Is your document shared with me directly?
1. Please complete your outline before class tomorrow.

2. Remember that your signed book-film club proposals are due Monday, April 21. Those without proposals will be assigned a school-approved text.

3. Meet in the Forum tomorrow for scheduling.
