The Week Ahead: March 11 to 15, 2019

And that’s a wrap! This week closes out quarter three!

All late work (for freshmen and seniors) is due to me by 3pm on March 13th, 2019. I WILL NOT accept anything after that point. It will be a zero. This is a non-negotiable.

Freshmen, if you have a grammar quiz that you would like to make up, sign up using this link. Please understand that if you want to take a quiz, you must sign up in advance, and if you don’t show up at the designated time, then you DO NOT get to take the quiz. Also recognize that if you did not complete the practice on time for any of the sets of commonly confused words, then you forfeited your right to take a makeup quiz.


Day 1:

  • Read Chapters 20 & 21 together of A Long Way Gone in class.For homework, you will complete a reflection on Google Classroom.

Day 2:

  • You will be learning about our summative assessment for A Long Way Gone and we will start brainstorming your topics. For homework, you will choose a prompt that you will respond to through your summative assessment.

Day 3:

  • We will continue to discuss the summative assessment and how to research for evidence. For homework, you will brainstorm how to connect your topic to the book.

Day 4:

  • You will be researching and outline your summative assessment in class.


Note: Specifics for the project will be posted on Google Classroom on Monday. 



On Monday, we will be looking at how to brainstorm sounds and then how to incorporate them. You will also continue to outline and story map your podcast. Your goal will be to start writing out a script by Tuesday or Thursday. I would love if we can start recording by Friday, but we will take it day-by-day and see how the week goes!
