We finished our notes from Friday and then read chapter one of To Kill a Mockingbird. After reading, we used the description of the Radley house on page 10 to draw a picture of the house in our booklets.
Finish drawing. Quiz tomorrow so be sure to go back and reread if you missed something!
Warm up: Respond to the quote: "Life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it." - Charles Swindoll
We went to the library today to check out To Kill a Mockingbird. When we came back we took notes on the characters of our story. We will finish our notes on Monday and I will post the link to the presentation on that day.
Today we made booklets that will serve as journals while we read To Kill a Mockingbird. We then did a lesson dealing with the significance of the n-word. The point of this exercise is to understand that the word can have different meanings in different contexts and to pay attention to how it will be used in the book. We ended with a silent write about how you think we should address the word when we see it in the text.
Warm up: Define the terms below:
Vocab #3 - Root: ann, enn - yearly
annals, anniversary, annual, annuity, biannual, biennial

Today we took some notes on the unreliable narrator. At the end of the Prezi presentation, you were asked to write a diary entry from the perspective of a villain. You can write the journal entry on the same piece of paper as your notes. Instructions are on the last slide of the Prezi.

Today we started with finishing the presentations. Thank you to all my brave students who showed up and did an awesome presentation.
After the presentation was the vocab quiz followed by a peer evaluation on the group project.
Everything we've done up till today will be on your quarterly grade report. Remember to turn in your essay if you didn't already!
Well, today feels like Friday! One more day!

Today we listed to half of the group presentations for their short story projects. Thank you all for your awesome presentations!
Afterwards we played a new game working with our vocab. We figured it out as we went along but it was a lot of fun.
STUDY FOR YOUR VOCAB TEST TOMORROW!
Since today was a minimum day, we didn't have a warm up. Instead I gave groups the entire period to finish their presentations.
The presentations will be Thursday and Friday.
No warm up today.
Since tomorrow will be a shortened day for the parade, I skipped the warm up activity to give students time to work on their projects.
Students worked on creating a Google Slides presentation of their short story projects. Students were encouraged to divide the project up so each person in the group was working on a different slide for their presentation. Most students worked well and got a lot done today. If you were absent, check your shared folder on your Google Drive and complete a couple of slides for your group.
Keep working on those projects!
There was a substitute today so here is what should have happened in class.
Warm up: Vocab #2 4/4 TEST FRIDAY!!! (Quizlet -->)
Today was a day to work on projects. Students should have focused on creating their poster for their story. This is a representation of your short story as if it was going to be released as a movie. Anyone not working on the poster should be working on finishing the story board for their presentation.
Work on your projects!
