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 JOURNAL ASSIGNMENTS: There were no journal assignments today, but we did get our graded journals back today. If you were absent when they were handed back, please ask for yours. Be aware that we’ll be journaling again when we start reading Shakespeare’s Othello in a couple of weeks’ time. So bring your journal to class at that point.

 

DAILY CLASSROOM ACTIVITIES: 

Monday, Feb. 29: Today we spent most of the class period writing our historical fiction stories. If you’re not in class today, follow the guidelines on the back of the plot diagram, and be sure to add ten of the “Archetypes Vocabulary” words in your story; the vocabulary words have to make sense in context. When you return to class, show your teacher that you’ve been keeping up with our schedule, and tell her, “I still need a grade for Monday’s writing time.” (If you don’t tell her this, she may not know why you’re showing her your story.)

Tuesday, March 1: Today was the last day to write our historical fiction stories. If you’re not in class today, follow the guidelines on the back of the plot diagram, and be sure to add ten of the “Archetypes Vocabulary” words in your story; the vocabulary words have to make sense in context. When you return to class, show your teacher that you’ve been keeping up with our schedule, and tell her, “I still need a grade for Tuesday’s writing time.” (If you don’t tell her this, she may not know why you’re showing her your story.)

Wednesday, March 2: Today we spent time editing our historical fiction stories. We used the PowerPoint called, “Editing Guide for Proofreading Stories” found on English Emporium (follow the link). If you were absent today, please use this Powerpoint to self-edit your story at home or plan to come to Friday school to use the PowerPoint to edit your story.
