I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Day 18, Sem. 1
So, I skipped Thursday since it was a teacher workday. And then somehow I didn't remember to update Friday's class activities until today (Sunday). My apologies to anyone looking!
We started class on Friday with some technical stuff: Students had to register and/or login to Turnitin.com and join my class there. The login information is available on my Canvas page as an Announcement. Once logged in, each student opened the Gilgamesh ACES assignment (click the blue Submit button), selected Cut/Paste Upload and copied their Gilgamesh ACES draft from the portfolio Google doc into the text box in Turnitin. This process allows us to anonymously share ACES for peer editing. Each student now needs to open the PeerMark assignment to review Gilgamesh ACES paragraphs by two other students. Those two reviews must be submitted by Wednesday, 9/27 (before class).
After getting everyone through the Turnitin process, students had approximately 40-45 minutes to work together at their tables to create the "textbook pages" on Greek drama and Tragedy using the sources provided. The handout explaining this assignment is available on Canvas. Each group must finish the textbook pages and each member must print his/her own copy for class on Monday to prove completion. The printed notes are essential for each student for study/testing purposes.
In the final 15 minutes of class, I gave instructions for completing the Subject/Verb agreement rules handout. In essence, students are to use context clues to figure out the missing words in the rules and supply an appropriate verb for each example sentence in #1-5. They are to complete this handout for homework.
Last, we reviewed definitions, synonyms, and antonyms for vocabulary words 6-10 on the new list from Oedipus Rex.
Homework: 1. Finalize revision of Hero ACES in Portfolio (due Friday night)
2. Complete Subject/Verb Agreement rules 1-5
3. Peer Review of 2 Gilgamesh ACES due on Wednesday, 9/27.
