The Arrow And The Song

by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.

I shot an arrow into the air,  [This is the name of the Twilight Zone episode we watched!]

It fell to earth, I knew not where;

For, so swiftly it flew, the sight

Could not follow it in its flight.


I breathed a song into the air,

It fell to earth, I knew not where;

For who has sight so keen and strong,

That it can follow the flight of song?


Long, long afterward, in an oak

I found the arrow, still unbroke;

And the song, from beginning to end,

I found again in the heart of a friend.


Friday, September 12 and Monday 15:


1. BLOG about The Twilight Zone. Follow the instructions on the BLOG page.

  • What are your thoughts on setting, theme, plot, characterization, symbolism, irony, etc.?  
  • Similarities to Lord of the Flies?

2. BLOG with ideas for our wiki. Vote on colors!

3. Go to CREATE PAGES, on the right.

  • Make a page for yourself to experiment on, store things, etc.
  • Store it in the STUDENT PAGES folder.

4. Put your biopoem on the wiki--with decorations, if you choose!

  • There is already a page created for this. Go to See All Pages, on the top right.
  • Be aware that since only one person at a time can edit a page, you can work on your poem on your own page, then transfer it.

5. Go to the "Copyright and Fair Use Page" and answer the following questions:

  • What is copyright?
  • What is copyleft?
  • What is fair use?
  • What is plagiarism?

***You MUST write out the answers by hand and turn them in to me.
