DAILY CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES: 

Monday, Oct. 5: If you were gone today, while we typed our Native American Literature essays, try to have yours completed and turned in by Thursday, October 8th. If you don’t turn your essay in on time, it will be deducted one point per day that it’s late, until you reach half credit. So please try to turn your work in on time!

Tuesday, Oct. 6: If you were gone today, while we typed our Native American Literature essays, try to have yours completed and turned in by Thursday, October 8th. If you don’t turn your essay in on time, it will be deducted one point per day that it’s late, until you reach half credit. So please try to turn your work in on time!

Wednesday, Oct. 7: Today we worked together, with the teacher, to create a “Works Cited” page for our Native American literature essays. If you need help creating your “Works Cited” page, please visit this page on English Emporium. It’s designed to help you. We also highlighed the vocabulary words that we used in our essays. Make sure you do this before you turn in your essay. If the words haven’t been highlighted, they won’t count toward your grade. Also note that all vocabulary words used in this essay must also be included at the back of the first draft. You’re not allowed to staple new vocabulary words to the back. This Native American Literature essay will count as a mid-term TEST grade, so it should reflect the vocabulary you’ve faithfully collected over the first half of the semester only.

Thursday, Oct. 8: We turned in our Native American literature essays yesterday. If you were absent yesterday, look back at the “Wednesday” entry above. Your teacher also gave back our spiral notebook journals. Make sure you get yours from her. We got our District Writing Assessment tests back today. (These were on blue paper.) We recorded our scores in the writing log that we keep in our file folders. Please ask for yours back, record your scores, and set your goal for the next test.
