DAILY CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES: 

Monday, Nov. 17: Today we were given assigned seats. Please ask the teacher where you should sit. We also went over the classroom rules and syllabus. Just like first trimester, you’ll have to have your parent sign this document and return it by Thursday. It’s an assignment. We also were given another assignment; we have to create a “vision board” which shows which actors we would cast in our version of Othello (images we draw or print off the Internet), if we were going to produce it as a movie. Your teacher has an example of one such vision board; ask her to show it to you. The vision board is also due Thursday.

Tuesday, Nov. 18: Today we continued reading Shakespeare’s Othello. Plan to catch up on your reading on Thursday, when our class is at the library.
