Looking Ahead to Next Week!

OK - 6th Period, I will not see you on Monday to prepare you for the title and reference pages. I am adding a sample of each, along with comments on those pages. Remember, one inch margins, 12 pt Times New Roman for EVERYTHING!

Periods 1 & 3, if you want to do yours this weekend, feel free to take a gander at this post, too!

Remember, this is due on Wednesday for 6th, and Thursday for 1st & 3rd.

ANY QUOTE, EXAMPLE, OR LYRICS YOU PLAN TO USE IN YOUR PAPER THAT IS NOT YOUR IDEA OR YOUR WORDS, MUST BE REFERENCED.

For your "Running head," it can be aligned at the left margin, or the center. Thanks to David (per. 3) for pointing it out and correcting me. Every "great" teacher needs humbling at some point. In this case, a mediocre teacher! haha!

C-Rod said...

OK, David. Unequivocally, you are tuning me out in class. Now it seems you are not reading because on the left of the blog are the dates.

The notes AND the outline are due tomorrow. You can copy the points/ideas/quotes from your notes page and paste them into your outline. Just put them in the order of how you will write your paragraphs. Please tell me you did not wait until tonight to start this?!?!?!

Call if you need to.

Love,
Your favorite teacher

Missssss(my annoying voice)
I can't print the Julius Caesar thing because I don't have black ink and since I have to copy and paste it to turn it DARK BLUE I can't.

Srry :(

Just giving you a heads up so you don't think I wasn't paying attention to you even though I WAS.

More stars!

ugh! Okay i am confused if its all 1 inch margins then ho is it half and inch from the top for the title page 0.o

C-Rod said...

Chris...

You can do it. It's called a header, and header margins are set at 1/2 inch from the top, while the rest of the margins are at 1 inch.

BTW, if you are getting your "briefs in a knot" about this, what are you going to do when life hands you a real challenge? Put it all in perspective, OK :o)

YOU CAN DO THIS! I believe in you~

You will still get a late grade for your work. If you are absent, you need to email it to me before the school day starts on the day it is due. Therefore, I would have needed it by 7:30 this morning.

My email is cnoel14@gmail.com
