Today we reviewed the poem "David." We used the study guide questions as the basis for our discussion. On Wednesday, we will write our first poetry test - it will be on "David." I strongly suggest you go to the the SlideShare link on this blog and review the PPT on "David" because the first 7 multiple choice questions on the test are vocabulary-type questions and some of the words are in that PPT. The next 8 questions are linked to understanding the poem's meaning and the study guide would be the best review for that. Next, I have some quotations that have literary devices in them: you must match the example to the device (this is a matching exercise). In general, don't think because the fist part of the test is multiple choice/matching that it will be easy - it won't, so please study. The last section of the test is a written section. You will be given lots of choice. First, you will choice to write a 300-word essay, OR three 100-word paragraphs. The essay will be on one element of fiction. If you choice the paragraphs, you will have to write three from a list of six - again, more choice.
Enjoy your break. If you have questions, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org ; I usually check my e-mail daily. You may also post questions as comments to this post; or, you can text one another - good luck. This test will be a key part of your third term mark.
