--The due date for submitting a revised "'St. Lucy's...' End-of-Mini-Unit Writing Assignment" for the Cumulative Writing Portfolio is Thursday, 1/15 (ACE)--just under one week from today or Friday, 1/16 (BDF)--five days from today (THIS Friday!).  Remember that YOU MUST schedule a meeting with me to go over your revisions; simply handing in the revisions is unacceptable as per the protocol. When time permits, meetings can/will occur during class time.
--One-pagers are due at the end of class on Tuesday, 1/20 (ACE) or Wednesday, 1/21 (BDF) for those students who have yet to complete one. We will use some class time on that Tuesday/Wednesday to complete one-pagers. Students who have already submitted a one-pager will engage in free reading during this time. ALWAYS BRING YOUR FREE READING BOOK TO CLASS.
--We will continue the lesson that we began last class when we meet again next week.
