Wednesday, November 20

Please take these two surveys:

  1. a reflection on your vocabulary quiz from Monday (scores are now in Gradespeed)
  2. a survey about what kinds of study abroad opportunities you would be interested in

We spent all of the rest of class today discussing The Count of Monte Cristo. Homework — due Friday — is the next reading guide (CMC Reading Guide 4).

Friday, November 15

My baby and I have both caught whatever is going around, so we’re shuffling a few things. The movie is postponed until next week, and we’ll finish the stations next week. You’ll turn in RG 1 along with RG 2 to me on Monday. Today with the substitute you should only be reading.

Wednesday, November 13

A few announcements:

  1. We will have an extra credit movie Friday after school — it’s Marie Antoinette, and it should give you some good background for The Count of Monte Cristo. You should be finished by 6:00 PM.
  2. The books were delayed, but they should be getting in tomorrow. Consequently, there is no homework for tonight, but you will have a big chunk of reading tomorrow. To help with that, all of tomorrow in class will be dedicated to reading — you can bring a blanket and a snack if you would like.
  3. You can also earn some extra credit by attending Bellaire Theatre’s performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream on Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. Please bring your ticket stub and take a picture of yourself there.

In class today, we went over the first CMC vocabulary list — your quiz on Monday will only be over those words (no grammar!). With the remaining time, students continued to work on the stations from yesterday.
