Remember your final on finals day is an essay. The topic will not be on your book, it will be on an issue/event that we have talked about as we discussed the issues in our texts-- "As I Grew Older," Greek Mythology, Comics, and Of Mice and Men. Please use your class books and notes as examples if you choose, in addition to the news articles that I give you. Please be prepared to layout your essay in MLA format and cite your quotes. You do not have to finish your essay, but it should look like you know how to finish and would if you had more time. There will be no right or wrong- just your opinion and evidence to support it. Relax and show me what you can do. :)
Turn in Of Mice and Men notes and books. :)
