Sophomores – One Last Thing About Your Exam

June 14, 2011

In addition to studying the vocab that I posted, preparing for the essay using the prompt that I posted, and studying the grammar (commas, semi-colons, and colons) that we recently discussed, you should also review any notes and quizzes that you have on important quotes from Othello.

There will be a section on the exam in which you are asked to identify important quotes from Othello, including who speaks them, who they say them to, and what they’re talking about. Make yourself a list of the quotes you feel are most important from that play, and that should be a big help.

And that is EVERYTHING that is on this exam!

Happy prepping.


Dearest Freshmen in Periods 2 and 5,

June 10, 2011

I have changed my mind (you’re shocked, I know) about giving out the CAPT story in advance. I decided to just put a really short one on there, one that you could read in class. Period 8 was able to take the whole thing without a problem, so you guys should do just fine as well.

So, to make it very clear: I will give you a short little story to read during the exam. No reading in advance over the weekend.

The below document is an example of what the sonnet section will look like on the final. This is not to say that the ONLY questions you will have about sonnets will look like this, but there is a section that will.

Dear Any Sophomores Who are Not Enrolled in our Turnitin Account,

June 8, 2011

The class I.D. # is 3500047

and the password is either Heiden or heiden – it’s one of those but I can’t remember which. Try it with the capital H first; I think that may be it.

(P.S. – Did you notice the semi-colon?) :p

Freshmen Review for Final

June 8, 2011

Download the following documents to review for the final. After you download these, you should have everything you need to prepare for the final, except a short story (about which you will answer a CAPT question). I will give you that short story on Thursday.

Also, be sure to scroll down one or two posts and download the vocab document if you haven’t already. You will NEED to study those 50 words to do well on this exam.
