Step 2. SONNET NUMBER 65, please see example of how it should look.
Step 3. Put the number of your sonnet in the subject line of your post. Then type out the entire sonnet at the top of your post. Begin annotating, following the sequence below.

Form: describe the overall form of the sonnet including rhyme scheme and component parts. See my annotation on #1 for an example.
Quatrain 1, Quatrain 2, Couplet, etc. : highlight or type out the first few words of each quatrain and the couplet to create an annotation for each of them separately. Describe what is going on in the quatrain at the level of ideas and figurative language. What is the main thought here and how is it expressed? Is there a volta? Where? How does it work?
Gloss: for unusual words or words that need to be defined or explained in context, use Gloss as the first word in your annotation and then give a quick definition.

Do you feel that The Tempest has a happy ending? Why or why not? In your respons

Do you feel that The Tempest has a happy ending? Why or why not? In your response, you may want to focus on such elements as the meaning of Prospero’s decision to return to Milan and his key speeches in Act V, the attitude of Antonio, the future of Ferdinand and Miranda, and the freedom granted to Ariel and Caliban. Write a one to one-and-a-half (1 – 1.5) page paper with a clear thesis, body paragraphs, and conclusion in which you explain your response. Use one or two direct quotes from the play, properly formatted and cited, to support your paper.
USE STANDARD MLA STYLE (see “MLA Style Sheet for Essays and Assignments” and “MLA Style Sheet for Quoting Shakespeare” under Class Information).
Always create your own title for your assignment (do not call it Assignment 3 or Henry V) and double-space all writing.
DRAW SPECIFICALLY FROM THE TEXT FOR YOUR QUOTES. DO NOT REFERENCE OUTSIDE SOURCES (Google, Wikipedia, student guides, encyclopedias, dictionaries, etc.). DO NOT PLAGIARIZE. Plagiarism results in an “F” on the paper, and the paper and it cannot be re-done. A second instance of plagiarism results in automatic failure of the course.
When you have completed the assignment, save a copy for yourself in an easily accessible place and submit a copy through Moodle.
