August 28

JOURNAL TOPIC: ["Twenty Questions" by The Beastie Boys; "Philosophers Stone" by Van Morrison]

Reflect for a moment on your study of Beowulf. Summarize the knowledge you have acquired, summarize your research/thought processes and experience, and list any questions you have.

1. Journal/
2. Vocabulary
3. Beowulf mastery exchange: characterization, literary elements, themes, language/structure

[UPDATE: Today's agenda has been hacked for period 3-- mind mapper Lisa Malins will review her team's creation of the Beowulf map and coach the rest of us.  Hoping a few people get her presentation on video so periods 4 & 5 can see.]

1. 15-30 mins. study vocab
2. Review "The Beginnings of English" in textbook (p.12); fair game for Friday's quiz
3. Sign up on your period's literature analysis post
4. Read the Personal Statement Worksheet, write, and bring a hard copy draft (preferably typed but neatly written OK) to class tomorrow, Thursday 8.29
5. See you at Hack to School Night
