I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Day 27, Sem. 1
After reviewing vocabulary words 6-10 on the 2nd Oedipus Vocabulary list, our groups presented scenes from the play. First period was able to present scenes 5-8, but third and fourth period classes only got through scenes 5-7. The remaining scenes (8-9) will present tomorrow to finish up the play! I've been incredibly impressed with the overall quality of readings -- the emotion/tone of the speakers has been exactly what I had hoped. We definitely have some true thespians in the classes -- send them down to Mr. Cox asap! :-) As was the case yesterday, students listening to the presentations were practicing their listening skills to hear and note evidence for specific ideas in Parts I and II. At the end of class, students had time to update those notes with line numbers from the text and to search for an include additional evidence by re-reading the scene in the textbook.
Homework: Complete notes on tracking charts for all scenes covered through class today. Revised Gilgamesh ACES paragraphs are due BEFORE CLASS TOMORROW!
