Hi everyone! I hope you're enjoying your snow day! This is a reminder to have a SRD for your "Popular Mechanics" essay to be edited during our next class. Either bring in your own hard copy, or send me a revised version (not the one from the computer lab-now that you have extra time, look it over again).
Also, look over the guidelines for your "Cellist of Sarajevo" project (you should be able to download it by clicking on the link). I will be going over the assignment in depth, along with giving you student samples, during our next class. Please feel free to post any questions you may have in the comment section below but you will not be responsible for starting the project until I see you again in class.
FINALLY: if the snow gods decide we need to have a second day off from school (Wednesday) check the "Flipping The Classroom" Discussions tab. I will post a discussion topic about Cellist, with posting instructions, so you don't completely forget all of your supah smaht observations and ideas about the ending, structure, and meaning of the work as a whole.
