What a successful week! LOTS of good ideas floating around your English 10 classes. Ideas about Good & Evil, The Beast, and Humanity as the Enemy...I'm going to call that a win. Lots of reading this week and getting the exposition, conflict, and complication.
Here's what our week looked like:
Monday, 10.19: LOTF ch. 1 reading
Wednesday, 10.21: LOTF ch. 1 quiz
Thursday, 10.22: LOTF ch. 2 reading & reciprocal teaching
Friday, 10.23: LOTF ch. 3 reader's theatre
A quick update:
Overall, it was a solid week. You've grown in your thinking and participation. Big thumbs up to those folks getting after the Big Ideas with maturity and an open mind.
Crazy week; short post!
Before we get too far down the rabbit hole of last week, let me assure you that you will have ONE FINAL CLASS DAY of work time to get caught up -- to cross your Ts, dot your Is, and circle your wagons.
It was a wacky week with my senior field trip, AP conference, and kid field trip chaperone day (AKA -- 3 subs for some of you), but here's a quick rundown. Links are included, so make sure you're clicking if you've been absent.
Monday: All Summer in a Day & Dystopia passage analysis
Tuesday: Mentor Text, Disco Papa
Wednesday: Mentor Text writing assignment One Night Essay
Thursday: Essay work day
Friday: The Lottery reading & comic assignment complete with comic strip for your work
As mentioned above, tomorrow is for WORK. Come in swinging!
