I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Day 59, Sem. 1
We started class by taking notes on the last 5 words on the current vocabulary list (from Night). Vocab. quiz will be Thursday this week. Next, we review the 2 rules for title punctuation (italicize titles for long texts; use quotation marks for short texts). I provided students a website (on Canvas) with a table for examples of long and short texts. Then, we reviewed the research process and located resources on Canvas for students to use during class (links to articles and the document for guided note taking). The students then used the remainder of the class period to read one article about the trickster archetype and take notes. We will repeat this process for the next 2 days; they will read a total of three articles and create three separate note documents by Wednesday. Students who are absent any of these three days (Mon-Wed. this week) should work on these notes at home in addition to the homework in Night/studying for quizzes. All three notes documents are due by Friday (I will start checking notes on Thursday for those who are finished).
Homework: Study comma rules, semi-colon/colon rules, and review capitalization and title punctuation rules for quiz tomorrow. Read chapters 7-9 in Night by Wed. (Analysis packet is due Friday.)
