A completed first draft of your "Where I'm From" poem is due at the beginning of class on Tuesday, September 2.  This draft doesn't need to be typed but should be complete and reflect all parts of your life as indicated in your notebook. 


In addition, it's a good idea to begin gathering some pictures or other mementos for your poster.





Read at least twenty minutes per night in your choice book.  


Your first lit journal is due Wednesday, September 3.  In this journal:

--- Identify one of the author's "deliberate decisions;"

-- Explain how the author implements this decision, using at least two quotes/examples for support;

-- Explain what you think about this decision.  Feel free to judge its effectiveness.


If you get stuck, you could complete this form instead.


As always, be sure to have your choice book with you for each and every lit class!
