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 class with some housekeeping information about the EOC: I gave all students a permission form to take home regarding leaving campus after our EOC on June 7. Students may leave campus after the EOC concludes at 11:48 with parental permission and private transportation. The permission form should be signed and returned by ALL students with an indication whether the student will leave campus early or will wait for bus transportation at 2:18.
Today was discussion day one for our literature circle books. All students had to verify preparation for our three discussion topics with written notes in the Part I packet and then they spent approximately 25 minutes in discussion. At the end of the discussion time, students wrote out an outline/plan for an ACES response to one of the discussion questions. This written response is due on Wednesday, 5/24. Afterwards, each student added his/her vocabulary words to a Quizlet set and shared the set with me and all group members. They will need to study these words and take a Quizlet test on them this Thursday in class.
I handed out the assignment packet for Part II of the literature circle packet today. All written work for the packet plus the reading of the ~125 pages for the second third of the book are due this Friday, 5/26.
Homework: Read ~25 pages in Part II of lit circle book. Work on ACES response from Part I. Begin marking passages for discussion questions or vocabulary.
