Ms. Peifer- Will there be any additional time in class to gather textual evidence for the Antigone paper, even if it is just ten minutes? (The internet source is hard to site by paragraph.)

No, I don't think there will be anymore time in class to work in this. You might want to try using the second link for Antigone because it includes line numbers (use the small ones).

Are you going to provide the work cited for the secong site for the Antigone play?

Ms. Peifer do you think it would be possible for an extension on one of the two assignments? Because there is no way that I can get the LRJ and the paper done by Wednesday if the musical practice keeps going until 7:30-8:00

Enzo, the play is an extra curricular activity. Maybe you can ask them for an hour break one night so you can finish your homework. Also, I assigned these assignments last week so technically you had the weekend to finish the assignments. If you want to discuss this further, email me.

Va, Check out the sample works cited I posted. It has all three works cited entries on it.

I tried yesterday night. So are we supposed to save it? That's what popped out when I clicked on it.

Va, I did write it on the board. I'm not sure why you are having troubles exactly. If you don't have it, you can look it up using the Purdue cite that is linked on the 10 IB blog. Additionally, it is NOT a bibiliography--it is a works cited!

If we post the paper on the blog, does the whole post have to be in MLA? Because it won't let me put my name in the upper right hand corner, or double space

Ms. Peifer, I was wonder, are the paragraphs for the web story of Antigone the lines that they are talking about? Like for example, one of them just have one line to say, but for some, there are like in paragraph forms. So what I'm asking is are the one lines that are spoken by a character consider a paragraphy?

Opps. I meant paragraph.
