CNF Workshop: Today: Holley and McClintock. Thus endeth Round Five.

Round Six looks like this: we will do no annotations for this round, just written comments. We will put all written comments on the blog, with one exception (Kreitzburg).

For Monday, Jan. 4: Written comments for Kreitzburg, Hill and Hamilton. Leave your written comment on the hard copy of Mr. Kreitzburg’s essay; leave the other two on the blog.

Your final revision is also due on the blog by 8:45 a.m. on Jan. 4. You must choose a piece from the first five rounds, and revise it substantially.

For Wednesday, Jan. 6: Written comments, on the blog, for Ohlund and Bain. (Remember, Miss Bain’s piece is pretty substantial, so I don’t know that I’d leave this till the last minute.)

Screenwriting Workshop: Today we workshopped Emmett. Please get up-to-date on your online comments over the break, if you are behind – something is always better than nothing, even if it’s late.

Less Miserables: In the Black Box. Walkthroughs of your shows, minus music. That should be happening after break. Also, we did peer reviews.

I’m proud that all four shows have made it to the completed stage, but there is much more work to be done to get these viewable. Let’s get to it!

BatCat: Have a great break! 🙂

Middle School Lit Arts: Quiz on The Tipping Point, Chapter 5. Please read Chapter 6 for Monday, Jan. 4 — and have a great break!

Middle School: Bert Bertram II.

Survey: Combined: Show & Tell of your objects. These will be used as the subjects of an ode, in sonnet form, which you will be writing in class tomorrow. These sonnets will automatically be entered into a schoolwide competition, which I expect at least someone from this class to be a winner in! (The winners get their sonnets printed in West Side Story programs, and will have a chance to read them prior to one of the performances.)

The guidelines are:

  1. The sonnet can be English or Italian.
  2. You may follow the traditional rhyme scheme for either sonnet, or you can write in blank verse. Either way, you’ll be writing in iambic pentameter.
  3. If you will not be in school tomorrow, but wish to enter the competition, I need your sonnet by 9 a.m. on Monday, Jan. 28.
  4. This sonnet will fulfill one of your three submission requirements for the year. (You should still do more than three…just sayin’)
