Give meaning to insight...


    This week we will begin our first major essay that explores three major themes in Books I-XII and also explores your experience reading, thus far, The Odyssey. It is a 1500 word essay which you will work on in a Pages doc shared with me. You may include two of your team analysis paragraphs (which must be cited). You must additionally write one of your own. The essay will also include a Literary Reflection paragraph. I will also give you Design Writing Plans for opening paragraphs, effective transitions and conclusions

The Essay is due after the second class period next week. This is not a week to procrastinate. The grade counts towards your winter term grade.

Use class time wisely and productively--and use the Design Writing plans assiduously. Look that word up!

This essay is intended to showcase your reading, writing and presentation skills, and can be used as a writing sample in secondary school applications.

Submit as a hard copy, a Pages doc, on your blog--and for extra credit as a podcast.
