Upcoming Tests

On Monday, January 25, you will have a final multiple choice and matching exam on A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Then on your final exam day (January 27-29), you will take a comprehensive vocabulary exam. That means that you need to study all of the words for the year so far since you don't know which 50 will appear on the test. The vocab list for A Midsummer Night's Dream will be tested as part of this final vocab exam.

On final exam day you will also write a group essay where you will receive an individual grade based on your group dynamics during the prewriting activities (idea generation and organization plan) and your final written product. Each person in the group will write a different section of the essay, and you will be graded on your own final product. One person is assigned to write the introduction (with attention-getter and thesis) and the conclusion with a modern, universal connection. The other three group members each write a body paragraph. The essay prompt will give you the opportunity to discuss a number of books read this semester.
