DAILY CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES: 

Monday, Nov. 24: Today your teacher handed out a document entitled “Thesis Graphic Organizer for Pre-Columbian Literature.” Extra copies can be found in Box 3 in the Make-up Work Center at the back of our classroom. You can also download one from the Assignments page on this website. To help us fill this out, we also watched a YouTube video, which you can find at this link.

Tuesday, Nov. 25: Today, with the teacher’s help and guidance, we created an outline on Native American literature, using our Thesis Graphic Organizer as a guide. Here’s a sample outline that you can look at, to see what the finished product looks like. It’s also helpful to use this outlining guide (which is found in Box 4, in the Make-up Work Center, in our classroom).

Wednesday, Nov. 26: Based on the outlines we created yesterday, we started writing an essay on Native American (pre-Columbian) literature. This first draft should be double-spaced, and it’s super helpful if it’s written in blue or black ink pen (one side of the page only). The first draft will be due Monday.

Thursday, Nov. 27: Today was Thanksgiving in the United States. There was no school.
