We continued reading our story, "Lamb to the Slaughter."
Students needs to finish the story this weekend, and it will be due on Monday. The questions need to be answered AND they need to be labeled for which QAR question it is.
Today we took the last PLAN Interim Assessment.
Tomorrow, revisions for the "Is America Becoming Unequal" worksheet are due. Otherwise, the current grade will remain.
Another week of Tuesday writing awaits.
Below is the writing prompt.
1. Today the revisions for last week's Tuesday Writing is due. Anything turned in after today is only eligible for late credit.
2. Reading Comp packet from last Friday was due today.
3. The "Is America Unequal" worksheets were given back today. They can be revised for more credit until Thursday.
Today was the 4th root words assessment.
Students were given a reading comprehension assignment for the weekend, due Tuesday after the three day weekend.
Also, revisions to the Tuesday writing is also due Tuesday, when we return from the three day weekend.
We spent today discussing the article "Is America Becoming Unequal?"
The assignment connected to this was due today as well.
The second book project is due tomorrow, and the next roots assessment is tomorrow, too. Study up!
We practice our roots for the assessment this Friday. It was a fun game full of prizes! :)
We began an article that addresses whether or not America is becoming financially unequal.
Students will be given two grades for this assignment: one for highlighting and defining unknown vocab in the article, and the other for the worksheet.
Over the three day weekend, students are expected to read the YES part of the argument. This section will be the source of our Tuesday writing when we return.
After finishing up article presentations, we began practicing our root words for next week's assessment.
We reviewed the root words at length before completing the assignment (and I even checked them all in class and gave them back if there were any errors!).
This is the seventh year Mrs. DeWitz has taught Freshman. It is her eighth year at Thornton.
