Short Story Unit Week 2: The Birds

This week is actually a relatively light one (in context with the Grin), as we will be investigating du Maurier's "The Birds". The study questions, and a topic sentence assignment, are due on Thursday.
Students will also be revising their essays this week (7th hour, you will receive your essays beginning Tuesday or Wednesday). A copy of the topic sentence/context assignment and the blank for rough drafts are now online.
Fiction terms will be tested on Friday; students should be keeping a literary terms journal that will be checked the week before finals.
Students should also have a copy of the "Grin" rubric, which has been revised to warn students of what I will be "borrowing" from your assignments.
