I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Honors Classes: Unusual schedule today because of PSAT testing at the school. 3rd period was long and 1st period was short, so the 2 classes were somewhat different. Also, I had an appointment this afternoon and had a substitute in my 1st period class (which met after lunch b/c of weird schedule). Everyone did the grammar review activity, which focused on fragments and run-on sentences. Our quiz tomorrow covers all of Unit 2, which includes sentence types, fragments, and run-ons. Retaking the pretest on Canvas is a good way to practice for this quiz. All students worked on reading and annotating in Things Fall Apart, although I was able to give more introduction to the annotation and the novel in general to my 3rd period class. I will get 1st period caught up by the end of this week. Homework: Study for grammar Unit 2 quiz. Read/annotate chapters 5-6 in TFA.
Academic Class: Long class today per the PSAT testing schedule. Students completed the test for our Tragic Hero unit and worked on their paragraph for the group essay. Some were able to start typing the paragraph into the group Google Document. Everyone must type the paragraph in by the end of class tomorrow! Homework: Grammar quiz on Unit 2 (sentence types, fragments, and run-on sentences) tomorrow. Finish handwritten plan for paragraph if necessary.
