Today we covered a few things for Second Semester.
1. Book projects changed! They are not at all what they were before. Now, students can read ANYTHING, articles included instead of books, and must reflect/respond to what they read in their composition books. This response can be a paragraph, the whole page, whatever. It will be collected twice a quarter. Each collection should have eight entries for 80 points, total. Please see the picture for my information.
Any student unsure of what to do can look at my example in class.
2. Students received bathroom/locker vouchers for the semester.
3. January calendars were distributed.
4. We cleaned out our binders in preparation for Semester 2!
Then we spent some time catching up, so we are ready to go tomorrow!
This is the seventh year Mrs. DeWitz has taught Freshman. It is her eighth year at Thornton.
