DAILY LANGUAGE REVIEW: Ask your teacher if she took grades on the DLR and find out from a classmate which one(s) you missed. If you were absent when your teacher took grades on the DLR, find a copy of the one you missed in the make-up work center. Take it home and edit and/or revise it as needed. Before you turn it in to the teacher, please draw a box around the one you missed with a highlighter pen, and tell your teacher “I still need a grade for this.” (Otherwise it may get lost in the stacks of other DLR assignments.)
DAILY CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES:
Monday, Nov. 16: Today we went to the library to finish researching library books to gather quotes for our research papers on world leaders. If you were absent today, extra copies of the “Citing a Book” handout can be found in Box 3 in the makeup work center. We completed these handouts today and turned them in for a grade, so once you finish yours, make sure you turn it in. Never put make-up work on your teacher’s desk; instead, put it directly in her HAND.
Tuesday, Nov. 17: Today we played a review game, to help us remember how to make an outline. It is recommended that you review the six-quote outline Guide found on the Assignments page on this website, so you will know what to expect for the research paper’s outline.
Wednesday, Nov. 18: Today we were given an outline guide and thesis statement graphic organizer to work on in class. Extra copies of this are found in Box 7 in the Make-up Work Center. Fill out the thesis graphic organizer side with a three-point thesis, and begin creating an outline on your own piece of notebook paper.
Thursday, Nov. 19: Today our class went to the computer lab, to find quotes from a website on our famous world leaders. The handout we were given to help us with this research is called, “Citing a Website,” and extra copies are found in Box 8. For your website, try to fulfill two of the requirements from our research paper’s checklist:
- quote a primary source — a written speech, page from a diary, or other text that includes the actual words from your world leader or one of his/her contemporaries
- find a diagram, timeline, or chart related to your world leader and copy this into the worksheet’s “Sketch” box
