Homework for the rest of this week...
Your homework for the remainder of this week is to meet with your mentor (if you have not already done so) and finalize your narrative essay! The final essay is due in class on Friday.
Homework due Tuesday 12/6/2016
Please bring in your full rough draft tomorrow.
Homework due Monday 12/5/16
I'm changing the assignment for Monday! Originally, I wanted you to bring the full rough draft, which means you would have had to write the reflection paragraph this weekend. Instead, you can hold off on that paragraph. INSTEAD, I just want you to insert details into your current draft to characterize yourself as the narrator. Make these changes, and bring in a fresh printed copy on Monday.
