October 27, 2011 Scribe Period 3

Hello to any present or absent students in Mrs. Smith's period 3 class! Today was the day we were to write our in-class essay comparing Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 and "The Pedestrian" along with Kurt Vonnegut's "Harrison Bergeron".  Due to trouble and failure of our school's WiFi leaving us without any internet connection, many students did not get the chance to finish their essay.  Mrs. Smith gave us the rest of the night to finish our essay. Remember, we're only required to write our two strongest body paragraphs for the essay, however we still have to include all three categories in our thesis. Remember you attention getter, thesis statement, topic sentence relating to thesis points, set up of the quote, lead into quote, quotation with correct citation, explanation of quote, connection to point, connection to thesis as well as your conclusion and works cited page. Be prepared to turn in your essay along with your outline tomorrow. Do not print in class. Tomorrow, make sure you're prepared for our SAT quiz on section 7. We need to know the word, definition, type of word, and synonyms and antonyms. We also have another work day for our movie trailer tomorrow.  

Homework Review-
-Turn in SAT vocab exercises on Section 7, and come ready for SAT test 
-Come to class with finished Fahrenheit 451 comparison essay with outline ready to turn in
-Read banned book, and work on banned book movie trailer.
