I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Day 33, Sem. 1
Today was a miscellaneous kind of day ...We read for 20 minutes (making up lost independent reading time from yesterday and seminar days) and then students had 30 minutes to work on either drafting the ACES paragraph (#3 -- modern tragic hero prompt) or peer reviewing the completed draft with a partner. After that, we took a look back at the first benchmark exam and examined commonly missed questions to find the textual evidence needed to choose the correct answer.
Homework: Revisions to the ACES #3 are due in the Google portfolio by Wednesday, 10/18. Students who did not have a chance to peer review in class today must have evidence of a review of the paragraph by another student, a peer tutor in the writing center, or another third party.
