We'll be going over the quiz in class this week. Your grades are posted online.

What's next? Two things for the week you return to school.

Please email and yourself

  • The title of the book you have chosen to review.
    Start working independently on writing this review for a favorite book you would recommend that others read. Consider this a
    sales pitch; convincing, positive, and intriguing for any potential reader. Include the title, author, number of pages, and your
    insights and opinions.
    We will also include a thumbnail of the book's cover with this review. You may be able to find the thumbnail at or scan a copy from the library or your personal collection.

  • The quote, lyric, line of poetry, or personal credo that you plan to use on your opening splash screen.
    These are words you live by or find inspiring. If they are someone else's words, you must credit them, of course.

I look forward to receiving your email with these two items enclosed.
This email assignment is due before next week's class meets.
Welcome back !

P.S. Start thinking about the classwork you are most proud of and the best way to display it on a web page...

All this assignment information is accessible online. Check it weekly to stay on top of your Techno.09 classwork.
