We’ll be doing oodles of awesome poetry the next few weeks, so you’re not going to want to miss class, but in case you do, check the Google calendar and read those poems, any of which could be found pretty easily with a web search.  We’ll typically be doing a poem with M/C, a poem with short answer, and a poem with discussion each day.  For each type of poem we do, you may alternately write your own in that style instead of the short answer questions.  For example, we’re doing sonnets for three days, but if write one, you don’t have to do the short answer questions for those three days . . .

essay memeHere is a document I gave out during the first week of school on the basics of essay writing including introductions and conclusions, thesis formation, organization, quote integration, and MLA citations: Essay Writing Overview

(A PDF version can be found here: Essay Writing Overview)

We’ll be writing all year, so it’s a good idea to keep this information handy.  There is also a wealth of information on the internet and I highly recommend Purdue OWL as a reference.  It has a detailed MLA guide as well as advice on how to write everything from a resume to a research paper.
