In addition to having a quiz on this material, you are also required to complete a SIFT worksheet for the tale. If you don't already have a SIFT worksheet printout, you may download it from the website here. However, when you turn it in, it must be printed out and turned in to me at the beginning of class. No late SIFTs will be accepted.
