Remember that you need to create a blog before I can link your eventual journal to the navigation area on the right side of this page. If you scan it, you will see "English 11 Blogs" and a list of students beneath that heading. Those students have created a blog so that I could link mine to theirs. See me before or after class if you need additional assistance. ALSO, remember that you need to read the "Lady Macbeth" article on my wiki page! For your convenience, here's the link: http://ayersamazingwiki.wikispaces.com/Macbeth. Remember, both the journal and wiki response are due by the end of the holiday break, and you need to take a few moments to read and respond to at least three other blog entries by your peers. HAPPY HOLIDAYS (HAPPY BLOGGING)!

Lastly, copy and paste your response into the WordPress window on your blog, and hit “post.” Then be sure to go to at least three other staff members’ blogs, read, and comment. Here is the link to that article (for your convenience): http://www.nytimes.com/2008/12/04/nyregion/04towns.html?partner=permalink&exprod=permalink

English 11: First Task

Macbeth says, “There’s daggers in men’s smiles.” In about 500 words (WordPress counts as you type), write about times in your life when you experienced this. Be sure to explain the situation, give your reader a sense of setting, and then share how you felt/how you dealt with that. Once you have published (be sure to revise in Word or some sort of word processing software), read at least three other postings and write a brief comment (a sentence or two). You can efficiently locate other students' blogs on the right side of this page under "English 11 Blogs". This must be completed by the end of the holiday break. Of course, all of this is dependent on your having started an account…
