Today's activity brought us to examine the depth of how complex our brains are and the importance of understanding how each person's brain is different, so that we can be at our best potential!
Below are the stations from today that you will be graded on.
Please use the worksheet below to track your answers for your work this week.
Today, we shared out our posters that everyone worked on all week, and addressed what each standard required of 9th graders. Hopefully, everyone has a deeper understanding of the common core.
Today we are taking care of some necessary pre-testing items. There are a few we will be using to chart student growth this year, and this test is one of those. It assesses students' knowledge of main idea, QAR, author's purpose, prediction, connections, and supporting details.
We will revisit this assessment in December to see how students have grown this semester.
Today was the final day to work on the common core activity poster in class. They will be presented on Friday.
Students are continuing to work in groups to "unpack" the common core standards that their group is working with.
This week, we are examining the reading standards from the Common Core. It is essential that we understand where we are headed in terms of our long term goals, so that students can adequately push themselves to achieve.
After much practicing and studying, students took their syllabus quiz today.
Monday is the deadline for the parent page of the syllabus to be turned in for 20 points.
Also, Wednesday is when students need to bring a binder to class, which will remain in class.
Today we are going to participate in an activity where the class gets to know how the classroom library is set up, as well as how to utilize other areas of the room.
Today we are writing a letter to me about your reading history. Also, there is a reader survey worksheet to complete, so I can get to know you better!
