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 and Monday, September 12 and 15:


1. Go to the CREATIVE TEST page in the LORD OF THE FLIES folder.

  • Tell me which project you will do.
  • If you change your mind over the weekend, that's okay. You can let me know Monday.

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

    (in the BLOGGING folder, on the right).

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

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

4. . Go to CREATE PAGES, on the right.

  • Make a page for yourself to experiment on, store things, etc.
  • Since only one person at a time can edit a page, your own page can be where you work on your biopoems, blogging, etc. copying and pasting it elsewhere.
  • Store it in the STUDENT PAGES folder.

5. 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.

6. Go to the "Copyright and Fair Use Page" (go to See All Pages, on the top right) 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. Do not post this on the wiki.

7. Work on your CREATIVE TEST. It's due Friday, September 19.

8. If you are working on the banner for our wiki and have time at school, you may work now. Obviously any of this work can be done at home as well.
