Friday, September 30

After our lesson on interjections (in the Grammar section of the website), we performed the play version of the Penelopiad! There’s no homework for this weekend, but I went ahead and gave you the homework for Monday night (so, due on Tuesday): (jlc-rg-1-the-joy-luck-club).

Please remember to study for your quiz on Monday! It will cover only the Joy Luck Club Vocabulary List 1, but all of the different parts of speech.

Thursday, September 29

We had a nice discussion today over the second part of the Penelopiad! After that, we went over the lesson on prepositions, which is available under the Grammar section of the website. Please remember that we will have a quiz on Monday – it will cover the Joy Luck Club Vocabulary List 1 words and ALL of the parts of speech (with a focus on conjunctions, prepositions, and interjections).

No homework for tonight! 🙂

Thursday, September 22

We continued working on our group essays today – please be sure that someone in your group can print that BEFORE class tomorrow to turn it in.

I also gave out the readings for the PIE paragraphs tomorrow (worth a major grade – the-odyssey-short-answer-response-assessment) and the study guide for the multiple choice exam tomorrow (also worth a major grade – the-odyssey-exam-study-guide).

Please remember to bring $10 if you would like to order a copy of The Joy Luck Club. And as a reminder, there’s no extra credit film tomorrow.

Happy Early Release Day! 🙂

Students continued to work on their group essays over themes in the Odyssey. There was no homework tonight, but I hope that you’ll continue working on your essays so that you have them ready to turn in on Friday.

A few things to remember:

  1. If you would like to purchase a copy of The Joy Luck Club, you can bring $10 on Thursday, Friday, or Monday.
  2. I will not be in my room for lunch tomorrow. If you need something, talk to me in class or come see me Friday.
