Drafts of Macbeth Literary Analysis essays are due in class by Tuesday, 10/29. Follow MLA format (double-space, name info in upper left corner, page numbers, title, etc.).
Final drafts are due in D2L by Thursday, 10/31/19. Save as a PDF and upload by 11:30 pm that evening. If you need an extension, email Borger before the assignment due date for an extension, per our syllabus. Late essays will be docked 10% per each day late – including weekends. Essays are only accepted via D2L.
Friday: Meta-reflection for week 12: Reflect on your Macbeth Literary Analysis paper process & work on Essay 2: Macbeth playlist. Reflection is good to do right after you submit since everything will be fresh in your mind.
Monday, November 4th, bring in a 5 paragraph reflection of your Playlist for Macbeth.
Come up with a 5-song playlist and explain why you chose those 5 songs to represent the play. Write a paragraph for each song and include some of the lyrics / descriptions of the music and connect it to the text. This might parallel / shadow your Macbeth Literary Analysis essay – pull quotes from it and match up to songs. You can also do 1 song per act, 1 song per character, etc. This can be collaborative writing assignment. 2 people per essay = same grade for both. We’ll work on works-cited pages based on your song choices.

On November, 7th, Kim Little will be here from SIU to help us apply for scholarships. Applying to SIU doesn’t mean you have to go there – BUT, it’ll give you backdoor access to scholarship opportunities. You can do this at EVERY college you apply to. Scholarship awards might help you decide which college to attend.
If you don’t apply to SIU, we can use JALC’s scholarship database for an example too.
