4 November: Term Work Day

Objective:

I can analyze how the writer's use of stylistic elements contributes to a work of literature's effects and meaning and how complex characters (e.g., those with multiple or conflicting motivations) develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the theme (RL 3 & L 3).


Entry Task:

As you come in, clear your desks of everything except your laptops. We will start the day by completing Vocabulary Quiz 2 using the form posted in Google Classroom.


What’s Going On:

Once you complete your quiz, come see me, and I will immediately enter your score into Skyward and tell you your current grade. If you are not happy with your current grade as your final term grade, the rest of the day is yours to use as you need to complete work for our class. All work you would like represented on your term grade is due at the end of the period. Check Skyward for work you would like to submit or update for an improved grade.


The expectation for today is to consistently and independently be working. If you are happy with your grade, you may:


  • Work on work for other classes

  • Read independently

  • Complete comprehension minutes in Lexia (login to lexiapowerup.com)

  • Complete an extension writing assignment using Nobody: In a well-developed paragraph, analyze how Marc Lamont Hill uses rhetorical devices to define a nobody. (Google Classroom: Week 9)

  • Complete an extension assessment of the poem from our previous CommonLit (Google Classroom: Week 10)

  • Complete an extension reading assignment (Google Classroom: Week 10)


I am available for conferencing on any of your work or to discuss your overall progress in this class.
