I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Independent Reading Time this week and through the end of the month should be spent reading the literature circle book! Students who don't yet have a copy of the book should read the free samples available in iBooks or Kindle for tomorrow's class. The first third of the book must be read and corresponding assignments completed by next Monday, 5/22. After our reading time in class today, I went over those assignments with students as they are outlined in our "First Third" packet (available on Canvas). Next, we practiced parallel structure with 5 sentences (on a Google slide here). I reminded students to memorize the 5 rules of parallel structure with their mnemonic device for a 10-point quiz tomorrow. Finally, students worked in their groups to analyze a new poem from our Holocaust poetry packet.
Homework: 1. Memorize parallel structure rules and complete practice on homework handout. 2. Finish Observe/Analyze sections of notes for poem you worked on in class today if necessary. 3. Read in literature circle book and work on this week's assignments (vocabulary, character chart, notes for discussion group).
