I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Day 61, Sem. 1
We started class with a review game for vocabulary (quiz is tomorrow). After that, students worked on reading and taking guided notes on the trickster archetype for the third (and final) day. Students who were able to finish today's notes with time remaining in class had me check off their work on all three and note corrections to MLA citations, then began looking through the options for tricksters from various world cultures to use as the literary source for the paper. Tomorrow we will form research paper groups (3 students per paper) and organize the information they have learned into an outline for the paper. Once they have a working outline, we will return to the media center on Friday to fill in the gaps in our informational notes, esp. direct quotes, and find a trickster's story for each member of the group.
Homework: Study for the vocabulary quiz tomorrow; remember to write some practice sentences so that you know how to use the words for the writing section of the quiz. Continue working on Night analysis packet (due Friday). Make plans NOW to get a copy of the book you've been assigned to read for the Holocaust book circles coming soon! Begin reading as soon as possible, esp. if you've chosen one of our longer texts like Unbroken and All the Light We Cannot See.
