I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
It's good to be back! I had a wonderful workshop and learned lots of great strategies for English II curriculum/standards, and I'm happy to see my students again and show them appreciation for working so hard in my absence.
After our 10 minutes of reading, students worked for about 15 minutes on classwork from Tuesday and Thursday in Oedipus. I checked Greek Drama notes for a classwork grade and collected the Tragic Hero paraphrase exercise for a homework grade. Then, we began reviewing vocabulary from this week's list by creating different jingles for some of the words. Good times, good times. Finally, we reviewed the comprehension questions from Scene I and began to analyze the argument between Oedipus and Teiresius for logos, ethos, and pathos. We will continue that analysis on Monday.
Homework: Finalize hero nomination letter, submit to Turnitin.com, print, and bring to class on Monday with outline and rubric/checklist.
Reading time this week: 50 minutes
