Your final study guide for Antony and Cleopatra will be due on Wednesday before we take our exam over the play. To prepare, please review your study guides from the previous Acts, paying especially close attention to the paragraph (level three) questions.

The test will include five paragraph responses, one quotation “translation,” and a series of short answer questions from the play. It will also cover the notes on Shakespeare’s tragedies, but not the background material on ancient Rome. All of the study guides and notes are available here.

We’ll review some of the material in class on Tuesday, but you should definitely spend some time studying tonight and tomorrow night.

Good luck!

The Antony and Cleopatra Act IV quiz will be on Friday, when your study guide is due. If you’re missing your study guide, you can find it here.

Remember to complete the quotation analysis section, as it will be really helpful for the exam.

Your college essay will be due next Wednesday in class. Information about the essay is located here.

The second significant write for English II is posted online and you should begin your research and drafting now. We will have some time to work on the piece in class, but you should plan to do some work at home to complete it.

The assignment will be due on Thursday, March 3 in class. Please bring a printed copy to class that day.

This Friday, we’ll have our quiz over Act 2 of Antony and Cleopatra. To review, you can definitely check out the No Fear Shakespeare version of the play and rely on your study guide. The study guides are also due on Friday.
