I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
We started with time for reading, specifically in the Lit Circle text. After 10 minutes of reading, I gave students about 15 minutes to write their first journal response to the text. They must write three of these journal responses for the first 100 pages of so of the book by next Monday. Next, students took the 10-point quiz on the rules for Parallel Structure: Coordinating conjunctions, Series, Linking Verbs, Comparisons, and Correlative Conjunctions. After grading the quiz, we discussed the parallelism practice they did for homework last night. We only had 10 minutes or so of time left at the end of class, so I checked groups poetry analysis from yesterday, but we did not start analyzing any new poems in class today.
Homework: Spend time working on Lit Circle First Third assignments: reading, writing a journal entry, identifying vocabulary, or marking passages and taking notes for discussion topics.
