Preparing for Wednesday?

What shall we accomplish during class on Wednesday (January 21)?

By the way, did you know that to be proper, one should use "shall" with first-person pronouns and "will" with second and third-person pronouns? Tis true!

Now to the agenda:
  1. Grammar Time: Introductory elements ~ participials.
  2. Test over Antigone. Remember, you must write a paragraph on the test convincing me...ah, yes...persuading me who the most tragic figure is within this drama. QUESTION: why is "who" correct in #2? Why would "whom" be incorrect?
  3. Return papers. Confirm grades.
  4. Type essay (due Friday) and blog (due this weekend).
  5. Assign speech to read...guess whose? Yes, going to analyze this speech for persuasive techniques. Please refer to previous blog.

Planning ahead? Vocabulary test on Friday!
