2. Manuscript form
3. AOW #1- "Periods."
4. Vocabulary analysis (@nd period finish rhetoric activity)
As usual, we started class with the DLP. Next I covered the expectations for manuscript format. Each student received a green paper with highlights, and I reviewed slides that have more detailed information. I will post the slides under the writing tab.
After discussing the format for essays, I answered questions regarding the project due next week. Then we moved on to our first AOW. I explained the approach students are to take when answering questions that models a strong answer format, A.C.E.S. I will post the slide under the literature tab. Students then read a fairly recent article regarding end punctuation and responded to several higher level questions regarding tone, word meanings, and opinion.
The final activity for the day was a continuation of our word analysis activities. I had hoped to finish the packet, but we ran out of time. Students submitted the work that they have completed thus far, and we will complete the activity on Monday. The only exception is 2nd period who has fallen slightly behind the other classes. We'll get there :)
I hope everyone has a happy and safe weekend.
