I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Day 7_, Sem. 1
Short classes today due to the early release schedule. We started with grammar/sentence variety, revising a paragraph by first identifying sentences that could be combined and then applying different sentence beginnings to the combined and remaining sentences. Next, we reviewed the poem "Moonrise" by looking at the mutiple choice options given for the questions the students answered as open-ended questions in yesterday's class. For the final 25-30 minutes, groups conducted their discussions about the lit circle books and wrote a reflection on notable aspects of this section of the book and insights gained from the discussion.
Homework: Continue reading in lit circle book as needed over the break. Our next group discussion is on Jan. 4 (Thursday), so read as much as needed to be prepared.
