The Week Ahead: March 26th to 30th

Three days…that is all we have to work through!

There is NO SCHOOL on Monday and Friday this week!

In class on Tuesday, students will be introduced to the AP Seminar Task 2 Elevator Pitch. They will the work on producing their elevator pitch. They will then give their pitch on Wednesday in class. The pitch must be 2 minutes or less. The directions can be found here. Then, on Thursday, we will review the AP Seminar IWA rubric and students will begin writing their essay. Here is the presentation that we reviewed in class on Thursday to help prepare to begin writing.

If students are absent for the speech then they will be required to make it up next week in the morning or after school. If they do not make it up by next Friday, April 6th, it will go into the gradebook as a zero.

Here are some upcoming due dates that students should keep an eye out for:

IWA 800 Word Check – 80 points – Tuesday April 3 in class

IWA 1500 Word Check – 70 points – Friday April 6 in class

IWA 1800 to 2000 Word Check & Peer Edit – April 9 in class

FSA Reading Test – Morning of April 16th & 17th in the Theater

IWA Presentations – April 18th to April 25th


Next week we will begin to prepare for the General Paper exam. The current event assignments will be replaced with writing assignments that use old General Paper prompts.

We will also continue to work on CommonLit practices until the FSA exam.
