Burns and Blake

The Rabbie Burns Biography... Done animation style...

This video is a pretty good capsulation of his life. ^ This guy is one of the pre-romantic poets, along with William Blake.

^ This guy was pretty formative, too.

Story Blog #2

This story is to be known as story number two. The writing assignment is due on Wednesday, April 18th, and should, again, include PLOT, CHARACTERS, SETTING, and  a THEME. The Bonus comes with if you can make it relate to a theme or topic of the Romantic Poets (Poetry is not required, though).

By the way, the three blocks on the right are "Actions" that must be part of your story in some way. The six on the left are still "Things" which need to be in your tale.

Good Luck!

Story Blog #1

Story Cubes are Fun!

This is the first blog assignment for the fourth quarter of 2011-12. The nine cubes that you see at the right are the nine elements that you need to use in a story of your own design. Your story should include PLOT, SETTING, CHARACTERS, and a THEME. It should also be better than my third grade daughters can produce, seeing as you have read considerably more stories than they have (I hope).

These stories are due no later than Wednesday, April 11th, 2012. They should only appear on your blog, and nowhere else should they arrive in my classroom.

Each element (each cube) should be pointed out in your blog post via boldface type.

Good Luck, and have fun!
