I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Apologies for the late post; I was out sick this day.
Class started with the grammar quiz on punctuation and capitalization. Students who finished quickly had some time to read in IRT book or Night. Next, students had 25 minutes in class to read and annotate Night using the annotation questions on Canvas for Chapter 1 of Night (those who finished quickly also continued in chapters 2-3). After some time reading Night, the substitute gave each table a set of books containing trickster tales. These tales were in the form of children's stories, folk tales, mythology, and novels. I wanted students to browse the books and get a sense of trickster stories and trickster characters because that is the topic of the research project we'll be working on in class next week. I asked the substitute to give them time to read and share the books at their own table and time to move around to other tables to see other books. Finally, the substitute gave each student a copy of the research project assignment packet. Students were to read the packet and take it home for parents to read and sign this weekend.
Homework: Reading/annotation in Night. Chapter 1-3 annotation check on Tuesday in class. Night vocabulary work. Get research packet signed by parent.
