This week, we’ll focus on:
Summative Assessment # 1
If you are writing a reflection paper, creating a kiosk presentation or a podcast, we will edit and create the “final version” on Monday 10/16. Your submission deadline: 11:59 pm on Monday, 10/16.
If you are writing a thesis-based research paper or multi-genre paper, your full rough draft is due on Thursday. We will then edit and create the “final version” for Friday, 10/20. Your submission deadline: 11:59 pm on Friday, 10/20.
Sign-up for in-class conferences for summative assessment #1.
We’ve got some new rubrics for the portfolio and your developing Reader’s and Writer’s Digital Notebook. We’ll explore them and discuss how they will support our work.
Reader’s & Writer’s Notebook
Continue reading and responding to your current book in your Reader’s & Writer’s Digital Notebook.
We’ll explore the Neoclassical period and the literary side of Benjamin Franklin. Look in Google-Classroom for a prompt related to literature from this period. Copy/paste this prompt and add it (and your response) to your Reader’s and Writer’s Digital Notebook.
So, wait a minute...do I have homework?
Yes – always. Within each term, you need to work towards developing and successfully demonstrating competency. Use this syllabus, the calendar below and the conference trackers to manage your time successfully.
