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 Student Choice Award nominations, and then moved quickly into grammar review of sentence variety. Our quiz on Grammar Unit 4 on Style (parallel structure, active sentences, and sentence variety) is tomorrow. Next, we completed our final EOC poetry practice with the poem "The Market-Place." Students submitted answers via PollEverywhere.com (text messaging). After the poetry Q&A, the entire class watched the NC Test video tutorial which shows students the computer-based format of the online test and how to use the various tools. As time permitted, I went over the requirements of this week's final project on the Comparative Literature unit. Students will complete writing in the form of a journal entry and one paragraph in a letter to the author of their lit circle book and publish the writing in an Ebook created in Google Slides. We will begin working on the project in class starting tomorrow.
Homework: Prepare for tomorrow's grammar quiz: Review rules for Parallel structure and creating active sentences, practice parallel structure on Grammar Bytes website, complete exercise on handout from class for active voice and sentence variety. As time permits, write or begin journal entry for Part 3 of lit circle book.
