- You have printed out, annotated, and taken notes on three articles from the Gale database.
- You have written at least a Reception and a Major themes paragraph based on your articles.
- You have created a Sandbox in Wikipedia with the parts of your plot summary, reception, themes, etc. paragraphs that need to be added to the real Wikipedia page for your novel.
- You have created citations for each quote you took from an article.

Today we went straight to work on our scripts.
HW: Read Act IV by tomorrow. Finish paraphrasing your script if you’re not done.
1. Focused freewrite: What’s the most important plot point in your scene? Why?
