    This is the assignment due at the end of this month.
    (Remember we have a rest week the last week of November, so earlier than the last week of the month submissions are welcome, this gives you a real rest week)

    Consider the following:
    Planning—do some brainstorming—consider that this is ONLY The beginning…do NOT WRITE the MIDDLE OR END
    Brainstorm some ideas that cause you to need to use a thesaurus. (find some juicy words)
    Your hook does not have to be very long, several sentences will suffice.
    Make it so the reader is really curious to keep reading.
    Check your spelling, punctuation, and capitalization.
    Before submitting to me, wait a day, re read it aloud EXACTLY as it is written. Listen for anything that needs revising. (eg incomplete or run on sentences, missing punctuation)
    Present your work neatly, handwriting is welcome.

    POEM to MEMORIZE (work toward word perfect memorization):

    After the Party
    By William Wise

    Jonathan Blake
    Ate too much cake,
    He isn’t himself today:
    He’s tucked up in bed
    With a feverish head,
    And he doesn’t much care to play.

    Jonathan Blake
    Ate too much cake,
    And three kinds of ice cream too-
    From his latest reports
    He’s quite out of sorts,
    And I’m sure the reports are true.

    I’m sorry to state
    That he also ate
    Six pickles, a pie, and a pear;
    In fact I confess
    It’s a reasonable guess
    He ate practically everything there.

    Yes, Jonathan Blake
    Ate too much cake,
    So he’s not at his best today;
    But there’s no need for sorrow-
    If you come back tomorrow,
    I’m sure he’ll be out to play.

    THIS MONTH’S WRITING & RHETORIC ASSIGNMENT FOR SUBMISSION:
    Amplification of The Ass and His Driver to be handed in before the end of November.
