I post here daily about what we accomplished in class each day, including handouts and links available to students on my CANVAS site.
Semester 2, Day 11
After our 10 minutes of reading (40+ minutes this week -- no reading tomorrow), I gave students a few minutes to discuss their peer editing with the recipients of their feedback. Next, I introduced the ACES portfolio assignment (big picture -- major assessment at the end of the quarter) and showed everyone how to access the Google template for the portfolio. We then reviewed the three prompts students can choose from in writing their first portfolio ACES about the Epic of Gilgamesh. With the remaining 45 minutes, students worked on the draft of their paragraph, set up the portfolio, and used the textbooks to find an correctly cite textual evidence. The draft of the paragraph is due tomorrow; students should submit either a handwritten draft OR a printed copy of one typed into the portfolio. Either type of submission should be double spaced to provide room for feedback.
Homework: Finish Gilgamesh ACES draft to turn in to for a homework grade.
