DAILY CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES: 

Monday, Feb. 1: Today we wrote our letters to 21st century authors. Then we did the rotational peer editing in class. If you were gone today, you must do all of the following to get caught up:

  • Write a first draft of an email-style letter to your 21st century author.
  • Include at least 5 literary vocabulary terms in your first draft of the letter. These must match the vocabulary you’ve been turning in on Thursdays.
  • Self-edit your first draft or have someone edit for you. Make sure you have at least 5 proofreading symbols when complete.

Tuesday, Feb. 2: Today we went to the computer lab to type and send our letters to our 21st century authors. Some students also started typing their junior board proposals. The letter to a 21st century author needs to have all of the following requirements fulfilled:

  • Include a greeting and closing.
  • Follow all rules of email, as mentioned in the “Email” section of the English Handbook Pages.
  • Include at least 5 literary vocabulary terms in your first draft of the letter. These must match the vocabulary you’ve been turning in on Thursdays.
  • Really and truly email (or snail mail) your letter to the author.
  • Send a blind carbon copy (BCC) of an email to your teacher as well.

Wednesday, Feb. 3: Today we reviewed the junior board proposal form. Please take a look at the paperwork your teacher sent you via school mail. Your proposal form is in your email. Make sure you ask any questions you still have, regarding this form, before we go to the computer lab on Monday. You need to begin seeking out a mentor for your senior project, so that when we type our proposal forms on Monday, you’ll know how to fill out the mentor portion of the proposal form.

Thursday, Feb. 4: Today we took another look at our timelines, adding notes to the 20th century portion. Please ask a friend to show you his/her additions to the notes you already have. Just add what you need to, onto the timeline that’s already in your journal. Then we read “Days of Obligation” on pages 1431 and 1432 in the literature book. You may need to come in at lunch, after school (by appointment), or for Friday school to make up the reading of this essay.
