Continue working on your compare/contrast outlines. Tomorrow we will continue with peer review. Essay due Tuesday.

Everything you wanted to know about your homework...

Students, from now on, you'll be able to find your homework and project assignments online. I hope this will make it easier to keep track of what we're doing in class.

  • Compare/Contrast Essay due Tuesday. Feel free to type, but not necessary.
    I was going to make this due tomorrow, however, it's clear from grading your first essay (Antigone's choice vs. Ismene's) that some of you have not read. I think you should use this long weekend wisely.
