AGENDA 11/23

COMPUTER LAB: Work on research proposals and pass out source guidelines
Research proposal directions
Sample research proposal

Introduce two good websites to begin your research:
The New York Times Topics page - look here for your topic--you'll find a wealth of resources!
Link to the Samohi Library page to access the SIRS and ProQuest databases - you'll need your login and password

Search for independent reading book:
Santa Monica Public Library
Los Angeles Public Library
Barnes & Noble

HW: Read ahead in The Scarlet Letter and check Turnitin.com's calendar page for your assigned discussion day. For your assigned discussion day, prepare questions, comments, quotations to discuss, connections to other texts or current events--anything to spark an interesting discussion. Research proposal and independent reading book are due tomorrow! Vocabulary quiz on Monday.
