I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Day 54, Sem. 1
As usual, on a test day, we start with the test to ensure that everyone has plenty of time to finish. Today's test was on the novel Things Fall Apart plus a new reading comprehension skills assessment (reading a short story with similar setting, characters, and themes from the novel). Most students finished in about 45 minutes and then had time to read independently. Once everyone finished (usually within an hour), we reviewed the comma exercise handout that was yesterday's homework.
Homework: Complete 2nd comma exercise practice on the back of Tuesday's handout. Finish adding self-selected robust vocabulary words to the back of the Things Fall Apart vocabulary notes sheet to turn in on Thursday. Bring the next book, Night, with you to class tomorrow also.
Coming up: A school counselor, Mr. James Gross, will meet with our classes on Friday for a group academic counseling session. He will discuss transcripts, GPAs, planning for course registration in February, and what sophomores should be doing about college planning.
