It’s possible that Mrs. Sparhawk took grades on the D.O.L. (grammar assignment) today. Please ask her if she did. If so, you need to go to a box in the make-up work center that says “extra D.O.L.” and get a worksheet from this box. You can take this home and do it as homework, but don’t forget to turn it in when you return to school tomorrow.
We wrote our assignments in our agendas today, too. The agenda guide is on the right-hand side of the whiteboard in Mrs. Sparhawk’s classroom. Copy the assignments into your agenda (planner), please.
Mrs. Sparhawk also showed us a Powerpoint presentation on thesis statements. You can view this Powerpoint by clicking on the following link: Powerpoint on Thesis Statements.
If you’d like to see it at school, just set an official appointment to come in at lunch. It’s no problem to use one of the student computers for this purpose.
After we watched the Powerpoint presentation on thesis statements, we started making a list of ten possible thesis statements. Later this week, we’ll choose just one of these for our actual essay topic. Mrs. Sparhawk will be giving a grade for finishing your list of ten thesis statements on Tuesday, November 15. If you’re going to be absent on Tuesday, remember to turn your ten thesis statements in for a grade when you return.
Thanks for checking in!
