Today we are talking about the article that you read yesterday and analyzed for the author’s use of language. We’re also answering some AP-style multiple choice questions about the other article that you read (if you’re not done with your annotations, you can turn those in to me on Monday). No homework for tonight!
On Wednesday, we went through the practice grammar exam and talked about questions that you still had ahead of the real test.
Students also started reading an article and answering some questions on the author’s use of language to make his argument (Bats Harbor Hundreds of Coronaviruses).
Today in class, we talked about the podcast, and I gave you 1) a parts of speech one-page review (Parts of Speech One Sheeter), 2) a phrases one-page review (Phrases Review v2), and 3) a practice grammar exam (Phrases Practice Exam) that is identical in form and content to the test that you will take on Monday.
We’ll be going over the answers to the practice test tomorrow, so try to answer all of the questions so that you have an accurate read on what you know and what you need to study!
Today students will be taking their Hot Zone List 1 vocabulary quiz.
Homework due on Wednesday is to read an annotate the article that you picked up in class today (see me for a paper copy).
On Friday we continued watching performances; students had a reflective sheet to fill out. If you weren’t here, please get one of those and turn it in to me ASAP.
Today was the first day of our play performances! We’ll continue tomorrow; homework is to continue working on your individual project (due on Monday!).
Today we went over your first Hot Zone vocabulary list — you will have a quiz over those words (and only those words) on Monday. I also asked you to try to get a copy of The Hot Zone by Monday, March 2 — here is the Amazon link.
Today students had the entire period to prepare for their play performances on Thursday. Even though you don’t have a homework assignment, you should be working on your creative response to Dracula, which is due on Monday of next week.
Today students took a STAAR-style test connected to Dracula. If you were absent, please come make this up on Thursday during lunch. Homework is to make some progress on your group play scenes and individual Dracula project.
Today students read a short poem and answered some multiple choice questions about it — if you were absent, please come make this up. We continued to read the play version of Dracula; although you don’t have homework, you should be working on your project at home.
