COOL HAND LUKE   Complete movie.  Day one - we watched 28 minutes of the movie. 

Movie questions are below.  Remember, the most important question is at the top of the sheet.  The other 76 questions are easy and not designed to make you think.  The questions are called Cool Hand Luck .docx.  Scroll to the bottom of the page. 

 



FRANKENSTEIN  Here you will find the entire novel both in text and audio book.  You are responsible for the following schedule.




10th Honors  Start checking this site often. 








Definition Essay Material  You need this material. 


MLA FORMAT   There is only one correct way to get this done.  Read the site, follow the directions, and match your final result to the sample provided. 


Time to Sound Academic     It appears to me that all of you can think well and, for the most part, write well.  Now, it is time to sound academic.  


Improve Your Google Search - Google can be your best friend or it can reflect your inability to ask quality questions.




No need to go below this line.  It will lead to confusion.  
___________________________________________________________________________________________________





MACBETH PLAY   Older version but it looks like the one we watched has been deleted. 

Macbeth Part I  - You are responsible for viewing this play even when you are not in class. 

Macbeth Part II  You are responsible for viewing this play even when you are not in class. 

All classes!  Some of you are submitting work with multiple grammar or spelling errors.  Starting today, 9/24/2015, any "silly" errors (see list below) will earn the assignment an F.  

1. A "silly error" is defined as any error caused by inattention to detail.  A "silly error" is defined as any error caused by laziness. 

2. A "silly error" is an error that can be fixed by one proof reading session before the assignment is submitted.  A "silly error" often, but not always, shows up as highlighted by the word program the student is using at the time of writing.  

In addition, many students are waiting until the last minute to complete this assignment.  If you have two weeks to complete this assignment, and you wait, and you run into some type of trouble, well, you are responsible for the outcome. 

Finally, many of you are submitting this assignment the morning it is due.  Let me be clear, all news assignments must be in my inbox before 7:30 on the day the assignment is due. 

Finally finally, some of you are failing to read the instructions - submit only to wrenenglish@gmail.com
