Finals Information


The essay we have been working on with Prompt 3 (using Bartleby as the text) will continue as planned. We will share our outlines and discuss possible evidence, analysis, and structure on Tuesday. We will work on using our ideas to write individual essays on Wednesday. The only change in plans is this: instead of going on your Q2 grade, it will be 20% of your final exam grade.

As planned, the multiple choice exam will be given during final exam time. It covers vocabulary, grammar/mechanics subjects, and poetry analysis.

Students who are trying to test in to the course will need to write the Prompt 3 essay on their own time and turn it in by the end of the day on Friday.

American Literature

Finals week will continue as planned. We will finish The Scarlet Letter unit Tuesday (there is a 10 question quiz). We will also review vocabulary. Wednesday, we will review hyphens and dashes, and we will discuss the questions outlined on The Scarlet Letter calendar. For the final, you will be tested over vocabulary and grammar/mechanics topics from the semester.

Honors 11

The essay discussion we started today will continue on Tuesday and Wednesday. We will continue to talk about how to tackle a timed essay over any of these prompts. I will continue to field questions regarding essay writing. This was the original plan for the week.

The final will still be the way we discussed: vocabulary and grammar/mechanics.
