Homework for Friday, January 29th

If you have my Standard WISE class (MWF 9, 12):

Read Frederick Douglass, “Learning How to Read and Write,” Chapter 7 from The Life of Frederick Douglass: An American Slave-http://docsouth.unc.edu/neh/douglass/douglass.html.

If you have my High TechWISE class (MWF 10):

You must turn in the final draft of your first paper by 5 p.m. Friday to:


You must also select three possible pre-Civil War items from the Second Life Museum of the African American Experience, take a snapshot of those three items, save them, and do a bit of research on them before class on Friday.

Guidelines for Turning in your paper:

  1. Papers must be submitted as a Word 2007 attachment in your e-mail. If the papers are not in Word, I will not grade them and you will not receive credit!
  2. Papers must include a written section (including at least two CITED sources), and a google map containing at least ten areas mentioned by Olaudah Equiano.  You do not need to have pathways, but if you do, I will award extra points.
  3. Papers must be in standard MLA style and format.  Please see page 432 in Blakesley’s book for an example of a properly formatted MLA paper.  Do not double-double space between paragraphs, indent the first line of every paragraph .5 inches, use 12 point font in the body of the paper, use in-text citation style, and include a Works Cited page at the end.
  4. Do not forget to include your name, the time you have my class, the name of the class (English 106WS), and the date the paper is due.
  5. If you have any questions about turning in your paper, please Skype me (dryaelkassorla), e-mail me (mkassorla@cau.edu), or send me a Second Life IM (Yael Myrtle).
