I have enjoyed reading your Writer's Notebooks.  You need 25 entries are due 11/15.  Remember these need to be 20 minutes of writing time for both entries each week.

L2- Should continue researching your notable.  If you haven't gone to the public library yet, you need to.  You will be gathering events for your notables' timeline this week.  Remember you need at a minimum 20 life events for your notable and a minimum of 10 world events.  The world events are to show what was happening in the world at the time of your notable's life.  If it relates to your notable, that is fantastic.  Remember that you are becoming an expert on your person so you should have many, many notes and pieces of information on your person.  You should have between 5 and 10 varied resources at a minimum. Research, research, research and more research.  If you feel that you have enough information, start your biography/autobiography.  As you are writing, if you are finding gaps, do more research to fill the gaps.  The due dates are markers along the way, if you are ready to start working on the next step in the process, please do :)

L3-Outsider projects are due in class today.  We will present them today and tomorrow.  On Thursday we will start the Trojan War.  Your Hero's Journey for your modern media is due on Thursday in class. 

I am excited to attend NAGC the end of the week.  Please be productive while I am gone and use your time wisely.

Have a great week! :)
