I felt I should formalize the expectations for the homework that was given in class today. Here is what I am expecting for Monday:
- list 3 different true stories you could tell for the narrative essay assignment.
- for each story, describe the meaning that this story would have, and what it would highlight about your life.
- Choose one of the summaries to share in class on Monday, it does not have to be the best one, or the one you are going to choose, but you should be able to discuss what the meaning is that it has.
- Be prepared to hand in your work.
Please post your Haiku as a comment on this blog entry. Please see assignment 7.2 for instructions on this assignment. You will need to post 9 haiku to this area.

my daily demands
Today we completed a historical character study based on Adolph Eichmann. Adolph was a ranking official in Germany under Adolf Hitler, and was responsible for dealing with the ‘Jewish problem.’ Students were asked to review the biographies and information available on Eichmann in class, and then take the events, source documents and decisions Eichmann made to create a character sketch of what type of personality he may have had. After the research was complete, we had a discussion about Eichmann, giving us some context of one of the key individuals of the Holocaust.
I’m back on here, and we’ll jump right into the content. I have attached below the assignment sheet including the marking guide for “The Highwayman” by Alfred Noyes. Please read through the poem if you have not already done so and continue to rehearse the section to which you have been assigned. We will be recording on Tuesday. Enjoy your long weekend!
