I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Day 58, Sem. 1
We had a short class today due to the Early Release bell schedule, which meant that we changed things around from our normal routine. First, we reviewed vocabulary words 6-10 on the list from Night. Next, I showed everyone how to access the resources on Canvas to complete 2 grammar related assignments over the break: Khan Academy practice for semi-colon and colon use and an refresher course on capitalization rules.
For the next 30+ minutes, students had time to read in Night, chapter 3 (if needed -- at least up to p34) and work on the analysis of the passage included in the analysis packet. I wanted them to have time to work on the analysis while they could ask me questions if the questions posed any difficulty. I reminded them to keep in mind that the packet counted as a minor assessment grade and to read/follow the directions carefully.
Homework: Continue reading in Night, through chapter 6. Complete analysis pages for chapters 4 and 5. Use the Khan Academy link on Canvas to review semi-colon and colon rules and practice exercises (do at least 2x). Answer the capitalization questions and use the Google Slides presentation on Canvas to review unfamiliar or unknown rules and check answers for the questions.
