I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Day 25, Sem. 1
We started class with our grammar quiz on agreement. I hope to have those graded and posted to Power School within a couple of days. I could tell those who had studied; they had great questions before the quiz and finished quickly and confidently! Next, we moved on to our Day 3 activities for Oedipus Live! Groups rehearsed their scenes today. We took advantage of the great weather and moved out to the courtyard so groups could spread out, stand up, and use as much volume as needed to practice their scenes! I'm really looking forward to these presentations tomorrow because I've been impressed with how well the last two days of preparation have gone. In the final 15 minutes of class, groups returned to the classroom and worked out a theme statement for their scene. That was due in the group folder by the end of class.
Tomorrow we begin the presentations of our scenes! Homework tonight is to rehearse lines with emotion and tone, practicing movement as well. In addition, all students should be working on the revision to the Gilgamesh ACES paragraph. Revised paragraphs are due IN THE PORTFOLIO (Google Doc) before Friday.
