I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Honors Classes: We started class with set #3 of practice exercises for active voice/passive voice. Then, students took a practice quiz on active voice/passive voice (link on Canvas in Grammar Unit 4). Next, we returned to our analysis of the poetry by writing a response poem to the poem we studied yesterday, "Could Have." We discussed the definition of a poem, looked at a poem about poetry, "Introduction to Poetry," and then looked at a model response to this same poem titled, "What Could Have Happened." Everyone had a little more than 30 minutes to write/begin a response poem. Homework: Complete final revision to research paper and submit final draft to Turnitin.com by 12/23 (Friday). Read all of Part I in your WWII book by Jan. 3.
Academic Class: We also practiced active voice/passive voice with sentences in set #3 (on Presentation document -- posted to Canvas). I showed students a series of graphics that depict awareness of the Holocaust and we discussed the importance of including Holocaust literature in our world literature study. Then, we resumed watching the video of Oprah's interview with Elie Wiesel. After the video, students who needed time to complete their outline could do so, while other students completed the last assignment of the unit by reading/annotating "The Story of Night" and conducting the mock interview of Elie Wiesel. Homework: Share Google Doc of outline with me by the end of the day today.
