I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Semester 2, Day 10
We started off class with the quiz on The Epic of Gilgamesh, after which students had time for independent reading. Once everyone finished the quiz, I gave each table an ACES paragraph that had been cut up and scrambled. Their job was to use their understanding of yesterday's notes on the ACES to unscramble and assemble the ACES paragraph in its correct order by carefully reading the sentences and looking for elements such as transition words, quote introductions, explanations, etc. that indicate where each element should go. This activity was harder than it looked! In fact, some students were unable to finish by the end of class. We will return to this activity tomorrow to review the paragraph format and then begin working on the first "official" ACES paragraph for their portfolio.
Homework: Read and provide written feedback on your group member's practice ACES. Instructions are included in the Remind text.
