"The Father" Assignment is due on Wednesday, February 8

The class began today by completing a Satisfaction Survey.
Then, we discussed suspense, irony and symbolism in the unit notes.
I also reviewed the handout, "Writer's Checklist." The focus was on where to place a comma in compound and complex sentences.
I recommended students complete #1-5 of "The Father" Assignment as it will be due on Wednesday. (There is a copy of this assignment on a post further down- just click on the link)  **For vocabulary questions, ONLY use a couple of synonyms or a brief phrase; do NOT write the dictionary definition.
