    >Substitute in today

    1. Read the short story, "The Devil and Tom Walker," by Washington Irving, then write an in-class essay (due today!) on the following topic:

    Explain how plot, setting, and character contribute to understanding the theme of the story.  (Think about writing a paragraph each for plot, setting, and character, and connect it to the theme.)

    Essays should be one approximately one full page. Papers of only a few sentences or of a single paragraph will receive a score of ZERO. You need to put forth honest effort.

    2. Handout: Poem -- "Eldorado," by Edgar Allan Poe. Handout has the questions on it. This is due tomorrow.


    >Google Classroom -- Poetry Terms

    Find the assignment. The form has several terms to define and give examples of (NOT "use in a sentence"). Make sure you look for the literary definition (for example, for the term "apostrophe" DO NOT put down "a punctuation mark" -- "apostrophe" as a literary term has a completely different definition).
