Let’s jump right in this week….
We will start class on Monday with a quiz on your second list of commonly confused words. I emailed many of you because you had not started your practice yet on NoRedInk. Make sure you are working on it! After you finish, you will take a diagnostic for your final list of commonly confused words.
The rest of the class will be spent working on your independent reading project. This is due on Wednesday by 11:59pm to Google Classroom. Late assignments will not be accepted!
We will move into conclusion paragraphs on day two! We are almost ready to put together a WHOLE essay.
We will finally get to talk about your PSAT scores and I am going to give you some tools for what you can do to prepare for your next PSAT in the fall.
Your homework will be to read chapters 18 & 19 in ALWG. No roles this time. Just read and be prepared to talk about it!
Since you will have read 18 & 19, you will be ready to read 20 & 21 together in class. We will read and discuss the end of the book together!
Your homework will be to PRACTICE for your independent reading PRESENTATIONS!
We will wrap up the week by listening to everyone’s book presentations! I cannot wait to add some new books to my list of books to be read one day!
Monday & Tuesday: Work days for your annotated bibliography. It is DUE on Friday, March 8th by 11:59pm to Google Classroom & TurnItIn.com!
Thursday: We will start planning out your podcast structure. I will give you strategies and ideas on how to plan and structure your podcast.
