ORDER TO TURN IN THE PAPER:

  • everything goes in folder (if partners, put both folders inside each other)
  • grading sheet filled out
  • paper
  • works cited
  • source from class used (no need to highlight)
  • all other sources (no need to highlight)
  • the folk/fairy tale (no need to highlight)
  • SECURITY copy--not in folder email to Wally by midnight lwallenberg@edenpr.org
  • SOME LIT THEORY PAPER REMINDERS (rev. 11.11.10):

    1.  NOTE ABOUT THE SOURCES WALLY PROVIDED: the Bressler, Appleman, and Dobie TITLED articles are from books on literary theory.  The TITLED articles by Smith and Murfin appear in the back of either Frankenstein by Mary Shelley or Hamlet by William Shakespeare.  Follow the format in the Survival Manual pp. WC 17-18 for "When you use only a titled chapter or titled article in a book or pamphlet." 

    Mary Shelley's name and William Shakespeare's name will appear on your works-cited page but NOT in any parenthetical references.  By the way, her name is spelled SHELLEY.

    2.  Stories in anthologies are in quotation marks.   ex. "Cinderella"    Stories that are published as books are italicized.   ex.  Cinderella

    3.  For a copy of how the paper should be organized, click HERE.

    4.  If you do the paper with a partner, turn in one copy of the paper, with both names listed in the heading.  For the pagination, type both last names with an "and" in between them.  Turn in one grading sheet, but make sure both of you have put your comments in the comment box.  The paper should be slipped into both folders.

    5.  Here's how you write the following:  PhD or  master's degree or MA.

    6.  Be consistent with capitalization.  Either use "Reader Response" or "reader response."  Pay attention to how your sources capitalize the theories.  Pick a style and be consistent.

    7.  ABOUT HIGHLIGHTING ON PAPER AND SOURCES!  Do not highlight anything in the actual paper.  Photocopy the pages from the sources you have used.  Only highlight what you used in the sources you have borrowed from the bins AND those YOU have located on your own so that I may easily locate the place on the source for the doc. checks.  You do not have to highlight anything from the folk/fairy tales.  If the folk/fair tales are not paginated, please do so in pencil on the pages OR using post-its.

    8.  Make sure you punctuate dialogue and any stage directions correctly.  Make sure you use the Survival Manual pages GRS 11-13 to help you do this.

    9.  Be sure you document the storyline frequently in the section where you are retelling the story.  Unless you have a direct quote, it is best to do it episodically.

    10.  Read the GRADING SHEET carefully,  so you don't miss anything required.  Be sure to establish credibility--both for your narrator as well as the REAL sources you use.

    11.  E-mail or voice mail Wally (952 975-4303) if you have any questions.

    12. The paper must be turned in by 3:00 on the due date or it's late (-10% per day late)!

    13.  Including THOUGHTS can be tricky. The thoughts are indicated in BLUE.

    Example writing the paper in 1st person:

    I walk into the classroom really excited about the hour I am about to spend with the students in Ms. Anderson's Literary Theory 101 class.  I hope they will enjoy hearing about Thumbelina through feminist perspective and maybe will want to take my own online course as a result. 

    I clear my throat and say, "Good morning, class." I wonder if anyone is listening.  I yell, "Hello!  My name is Sara Madison."  They are still talking!  Is there no discipline in the college classrooms today?  I'll try again.  "Quiet!" I screamed. Finally, I get their attention.

    Example writing the paper in 3rd person:

    The professor thought, "I wonder if he is actually going to ask that question."   
     
    Then Professor Madison asked, "How many of you have read the story?"  She speculated that no one had.  Then she added, "Let me phrase it another way, then." She wondered if the hour would ever end and whether teaching was really her calling after all.

    14. NOTE:  Be careful with tense!  Are you going to write the paper as the hour enfolds?  If so, you will be writing primarily in the present tense when it comes to the classroom events.  You can also choose to write the paper as if the event has already transpired; you would be reflecting back on how the events unfolded.  In that case, you would write primarily in the past tense.

    15.  Pay special attention to stories that are "compiled by" or "retold by" or "adapted by."  They require special treatment for works cited and parenthetical documentation. See page WC 12 for how to do a translator, editor, compiler, or adapter.

    Notes: 1.  Record your results on the yellow and pink sheets in your folder.   By the way, Mr. Olson doesn't like to use the boxes at the end of the grading sheet.  He prefers that you read his comments in the margins to find the positives and suggestions.  You must summarize these in the pink boxes and write a goal for the next paper.  Then, record your number of errors in Lit. Analysis Paper column on the yellow technical sheet.) 2.   Be sure to follow directions! There will be a lot less "mercy" for not doing correcting the error correctly this time.   3.  YOU ARE REQUIRED TO WRITE OUT THE WHOLE SENTENCE THAT HAS THE ERROR(S).  DO NOT USE ELLIPSES!  4.  Make sure you do not make ANY NEW ERRORS.  If two or more errors occur in the same sentence, follow the specific directions on how to correct them all together.  5.   TURN BUYBACKS IN ON TIME!  If buybacks are not turned in on your deadline, they are 1/2 credit the next day and no credit the day after!  5.  Read the blue BUYBACK hand-out CAREFULLY so you can ask any questions/clear up anything you don't understand about the buyback procedure.

ADVICE SCENE

ACT 2 BEGINS!

       

"You are a fishmonger!"

"Though this be madness, yet there is method in it!"

Today's Quote of the Day:

from Macbeth, Act 5, scene 5:

MACBETH

She should have died hereafter;
There would have been a time for such a word.
To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day
To the last syllable of recorded time,
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!
Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage
And then is heard no more: it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of
sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

TUESDAY, day 35

"the play's the thing . . .

. . . wherein I'll catch the conscience of the king!"

Today's Quote of the Day:

"I wanted you to see what courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a  man with a gun in his hand.  It's when you know you're licked before you  begin but you begin anyway and see it through no matter what."

from To Kill A Mockingbird  by Harper Lee

Today's Allusion:

non sequiter

Today's Words of the Day:

hiatus (Oles)

histrionics (Oles)

rancor (Wallies)

debonair (Wallies)

pyrrhic victory

HAMLET WORD OF THE DAY: Pyrrhic victory (PIR-ik VIK-tuh-ree) See  Hamlet Act 2 pp. 35-53

noun A victory won at too great a cost. [After Pyrrhus, king of Epirus, who suffered staggering losses in defeating the Romans.]

"With lawsuits multiplying like crazy and mutual accusations of stealing the election spiralling out of control, almost any result now looks as if it will be a Pyrrhic victory."United States: Whatever Will They Think of Next?; The Economist (London, UK); Nov 25, 2000.

"One more such victory and we are lost," exclaimed Pyrrhus, king of Epirus, as he described his costly success in the battle of Asculum in Apulia. With those words he gave us a metaphor to refer to a victory so costly that it's barely better than defeat. If we talk to those who lost their sons, daughters, mothers, fathers, husbands, wives and other loved ones in war, every victory is a Pyrrhic victory. A war is perhaps the only occasion when killing a person is not just accepted but rewarded. If only we could learn to fight wars only with words.

    ORDER TO TURN IN THE PAPER:

    • everything goes in folder (if partners, put both folders inside each other)
    • grading sheet filled out
    • paper
    • works cited
    • source from class used (no need to highlight)
    • all other sources (no need to highlight)
    • the folk/fairy tale (no need to highlight)
    • SECURITY copy--not in folder (or email to Wally by midnight the night the paper is due)  lwallenberg@edenpr.org
    • SOME LIT THEORY PAPER REMINDERS (rev. 11.11.10):

      1.  NOTE ABOUT THE SOURCES WALLY PROVIDED: the Bressler, Appleman, and Dobie TITLED articles are from books on literary theory.  The TITLED articles by Smith and Murfin appear in the back of either Frankenstein by Mary Shelley or Hamlet by William Shakespeare.  Follow the format in the Survival Manual pp. WC 17-18 for "When you use only a titled chapter or titled article in a book or pamphlet." 

      Mary Shelley's name and William Shakespeare's name will appear on your works-cited page but NOT in any parenthetical references.  By the way, her name is spelled SHELLEY.

      2.  Stories in anthologies are in quotation marks.   ex. "Cinderella"    Stories that are published as books are italicized.   ex.  Cinderella

      3.  For a copy of how the paper should be organized, click HERE.

      4.  If you do the paper with a partner, turn in one copy of the paper, with both names listed in the heading.  For the pagination, type both last names with an "and" in between them.  Turn in one grading sheet, but make sure both of you have put your comments in the comment box.  The paper should be slipped into both folders.

      5.  Here's how you write the following:  PhD or  master's degree or MA.

      6.  Be consistent with capitalization.  Either use "Reader Response" or "reader response."  Pay attention to how your sources capitalize the theories.  Pick a style and be consistent.

      7.  ABOUT HIGHLIGHTING ON PAPER AND SOURCES!  Do not highlight anything in the actual paper.  Photocopy the pages from the sources you have used.  Only highlight what you used in the sources you have borrowed from the bins AND those YOU have located on your own so that I may easily locate the place on the source for the doc. checks.  You do not have to highlight anything from the folk/fairy tales.  If the folk/fair tales are not paginated, please do so in pencil on the pages OR using post-its.

      8.  Make sure you punctuate dialogue and any stage directions correctly.  Make sure you use the Survival Manual pages GRS 11-13 to help you do this.

      9.  Be sure you document the storyline frequently in the section where you are retelling the story.  Unless you have a direct quote, it is best to do it episodically.

      10.  Read the GRADING SHEET carefully,  so you don't miss anything required.  Be sure to establish credibility--both for your narrator as well as the REAL sources you use.

      11.  E-mail or voice mail Wally (952 975-4303) if you have any questions.

      12. The paper must be turned in by 3:00 on the due date or it's late (-10% per day late)!

      13.  Including THOUGHTS can be tricky. The thoughts are indicated in BLUE.

      Example writing the paper in 1st person:

      I walk into the classroom really excited about the hour I am about to spend with the students in Ms. Anderson's Literary Theory 101 class.  I hope they will enjoy hearing about Thumbelina through feminist perspective and maybe will want to take my own online course as a result. 

      I clear my throat and say, "Good morning, class." I wonder if anyone is listening.  I yell, "Hello!  My name is Sara Madison."  They are still talking!  Is there no discipline in the college classrooms today?  I'll try again.  "Quiet!" I screamed. Finally, I get their attention.

      Example writing the paper in 3rd person:

      The professor thought, "I wonder if he is actually going to ask that question."   
       
      Then Professor Madison asked, "How many of you have read the story?"  She speculated that no one had.  Then she added, "Let me phrase it another way, then." She wondered if the hour would ever end and whether teaching was really her calling after all.

      14. NOTE:  Be careful with tense!  Are you going to write the paper as the hour enfolds?  If so, you will be writing primarily in the present tense when it comes to the classroom events.  You can also choose to write the paper as if the event has already transpired; you would be reflecting back on how the events unfolded.  In that case, you would write primarily in the past tense.

      15.  Pay special attention to stories that are "compiled by" or "retold by" or "adapted by."  They require special treatment for works cited and parenthetical documentation. See page WC 12 for how to do a translator, editor, compiler, or adapter.  

      Click  HERE for the WC (Works Cited) section--pink (rev. 11.22.09)  Also, check out the section WITH EDITOR or TRANSLATOR or COMPILER   in the PDQ section of the Survival Manual.  Click HERE for the PDQ (Parenthetical Documentation and Quotes) section--green  (rev. 11.22.09)

       

    NOTE: SECURITY COPY OF PAPER MUST BE E-MAILED TO WALLY lwallenberg@edenpr.org BY MIDNIGHT on the paper's due date!  If not on time, there will be a -1 point deduction on the paper!

  2. Buybacks 

    Notes: 1.  Record your results on the yellow and pink sheets in your folder.   By the way, Mr. Olson doesn't like to use the boxes at the end of the grading sheet.  He prefers that you read his comments in the margins to find the positives and suggestions.  You must summarize these in the pink boxes and write a goal for the next paper.  Then, record your number of errors in Lit. Analysis Paper column on the yellow technical sheet.) 2.   Be sure to follow directions! There will be a lot less "mercy" for not doing correcting the error correctly this time.   3.  YOU ARE REQUIRED TO WRITE OUT THE WHOLE SENTENCE THAT HAS THE ERROR(S).  DO NOT USE ELLIPSES!  4.  Make sure you do not make ANY NEW ERRORS.  If two or more errors occur in the same sentence, follow the specific directions on how to correct them all together.  5.   TURN BUYBACKS IN ON TIME!  If buybacks are not turned in on your deadline, they are 1/2 credit the next day and no credit the day after!  5.  Read the blue BUYBACK hand-out CAREFULLY so you can ask any questions/clear up anything you don't understand about the buyback procedure. 

     If you want to print out your own copy of the BUYBACK PACKET for highlighting, active reading, etc., click HERE.  If you would like to use a template (rev. 2010) to do your buybacks, click HERE. (You can cut and paste this into a WORD DOCUMENT and make changes--add more rows or delete categories etc. to make it work for you.  Remember to print it out in landscape format!)  For a sample (NOT PERFECT) of what BUYBACKS ARE SUPPOSED TO LOOK LIKE WHEN DONE, CLICK HERE (WORD version) OR  HERE (pdf.verson)! If you would like to use the ACE template, click HERE

Note:  All buybacks are due on March 29th.  Remember to record results in the pink chart Notes: 1.  Record your results on the yellow and pink sheets in your folder. Mr. Olson doesn't like to use the boxes at the end of the grading sheet.  He prefers that you read his comments in the margins to find the positives and suggestions.  You must summarize these in the pink boxes and write a goal for the next paper.  Then, record your number of errors in Lit. Analysis Paper column on the yellow technical sheet.) 2.   Be sure to follow directions! There will be a lot less "mercy" for not doing correcting the error correctly this time.   3.  YOU ARE REQUIRED TO WRITE OUT THE WHOLE SENTENCE THAT HAS THE ERROR(S).  DO NOT USE ELLIPSES!  4.  Make sure you do not make ANY NEW ERRORS.  If two or more errors occur in the same sentence, follow the specific directions on how to correct them all together.  5.   TURN BUYBACKS IN ON TIME!  If buybacks are not turned in on your deadline, they are 1/2 credit the next day and no credit the day after!  5.  Read the blue BUYBACK hand-out CAREFULLY so you can ask any questions/clear up anything you don't understand about the buyback procedure.

    lessons with their students) at age 47 when he found out he had cancer

    and only had a few months to live. Incredible:
