They cost 60 dollars, and you will not get your diploma if you don't turn them back in. Really.

11th grade: The Scarlet Letter chapter 6 annotations. Use the annotation guide I distributed in class. I will not give points for incomplete, unclear, or sloppy work. 
Merely underlining a passage is not annotation! Write questions, comments, etc. about the passage you underlined!
If you can't figure out what to do on your own, see me again for a model. 

Remember that draft #2 of your persuasive essay is due this Friday. Typed, printed double-space, 12-point font, default margins, working title, working bibliography. You may use in-text citations https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/02/ OR end notes https://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/747/04/
Pick ONE style and stick with it.
