Wednesday, September 23rd (Monday schedule)

Check out your classmates blogs linked on the right side bar of this page!

Remember to turn in your 400 word paper as soon as you come back on campus. If you like it a lot, you may want to do a final revision and then post it as the first element in your electronic portfolio.

Today we:
1. Signed up for presentations on Irish history and culture. Be sure to sign up when you return. Read about the assignment here:
2. Discussed Ireland's history, as its literature and history are significantly connected. Pick up a history packet when you return so you can create a timeline of 19th/early 20th century Ireland.
3. Discussed W.B. Yeats' poem "Easter, 1916." Look it up online and read it!
4. Passed out our new text, Dubliners, and listened to the first story "Eveline" on Audio. Be sure to pick up the text as soon as posssible. Download the theme chart you should be working on as we read here:

HW: Read "Araby" and "A Little Cloud" in Dubliners, complete Irish history timeline
