1. DLP #2
2. Vocabulary- word analysis
3. Who am I?- project details
4. Complete rhetoric activity
I handed out the link for student and parent surveys in all classes. The informal questionnaire is located in a Google form. You can go to the survey tab above in order to locate it.
We started with the DLP. Next we read information regarding strategies to make meaning from unfamiliar words and learn vocabulary. We discussed context clues (5 types) & signal words, multiple choice strategies, and structural clues. We completed one activity and will continue with the packet tomorrow.
I reviewed the requirements for the Who Am I? project and provided students the opportunity to complete their prewriting in class. Those who did not will need to do it on their own time. The slides discussing the project in detail can be found under the independent projects tab above as well as here. The prewriting questions, visual, and essay will all be due at the beginning of class on 2/2. Students will NOT have class time to work on these, and this is a major assessment.
2nd period did not have time to work on their Rhetoric activity, so I will provide 20 minutes tomorrow.
Finally, the class had the last 20 minutes to complete the rhetoric activity. The product and paragraph will be due at the beginning of class tomorrow.
