I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Day 69, Sem. 1
We started off with 15 minutes of independent reading. We will be increasing our in-class reading time over the course of the week to provide time in class for students to read the novel/biography selected for the Literature Circles. In addition to reading, we also discussed the requirements for the research paper's conclusion paragraph and did some planning for our Literature Circle reading/discussion schedule. Each group selected a goal of total pages read (50 is the minimum) for the first discussion meeting on Thursday (12/14) and assigned group roles for that first meeting as well. Finally, with time we had remaining, we held a short discussion of Night and Life is Beautiful, especially with regard to common motifs in both texts.
Homework: Complete peer review (if not done over the weekend). Write assigned section of conclusion. Read/work on assigned role for Thursday's literature circle discussion.
