Assigned (to work on in class and for homework):

  • Check EOLang p. 146-152: Ex. 1, 2, and 4. Use the keys in the sidebar to the right. Work with others to help answer each other's questions. Make note of any unanswered questions.
  • Complete EOLang p. 151-154: Ex. 5 and Rev. A (after reading EOLang p. 152-153): Due Friday
  • Look up definitions to the R&J literary terms. Be careful to write down only the definitions that pertain to Shakespearean plays. Complete this on your own paper and be sure to include the heading and assignment title: Due Friday.
  • CAREFULLY read the section on "Print Sources" on this updated Intro and Sources handout (I just updated it this week). Try to find at least ONE print source for the movie of your choice. (If you do find a good print source, go ahead and save it to a folder--I'll tell you what to do with it later). This will help you determine whether you should choose that movie or not for your paper. If you cannot find the required sources for your paper, then you will have difficulty writing about it. Also, look at the sample sources I have provided (print, database, and web) so that you get an idea of what each one can look like. Notice the differences.
  • On Friday (provided I am back), I will have a sign up sheet for your movie choices.
