I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Short classes today on our early release schedule!
Honors Classes: Students focused today on the central conflict in Chapter 21 of Things Fall Apart, the clash of religions in colonial Nigeria. Working with a partner, they chose one character's point of view and worked to create a blackout poem from a copy of the text that expresses that character's argument/point of view. Final, illustrated poems are due in class on Thursday, but we will not have more class time to work on the project. Homework: Read/annotate Chapters 23-25 and continue to work on blackout poem.
Academic Classes: Students worked in teams at the beginning of class to play a Quizlet live vocabulary review game. They have a vocabulary quiz tomorrow on those words. Then, they worked on reading Chapter 11 and completing the required notes on the Part I graphic organizer. Homework Finish Chapter 11 notes and study for the vocabulary quiz.
