I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Students completed the Benchmark skills assessment in the first part of class today. The test consisted of three reading passages (essay, literature, poetry) with five comprehension questions for each passage. Most students completed the test in 30-40 minutes. Those who finished early had time to read in their independently chosen novels. Next, students worked on a vocabulary review activity (depended on the class -- some classes needed to complete paraphrases of context sentences, others were ready to develop a review activity for specific words. While they worked, I returned seminar topic selections to students with their topics assigned (highlighted) and explained what kinds of notes are needed by Friday to ensure participation in the seminar discussion.
Homework: Finish vocabulary review activity as needed.
Coming Up: Vocabulary quiz on Thursday.
Oedipus Rex and Greek drama quiz on Friday
Seminar discussion on Monday
