Mrs. J. Underhill
We discussed the final projects for the Literature Circles today. Students are aware that we only have 13 classes until the due date (December 10), so it is getting down to "crunch time". Most groups met and increased their work loads for the readings and role work.
We talked about the importance of staying focused and on task for the next couple weeks and students agreed that they would probably have to do some extra work at home in order to get all of the requirements finished.
I have uploaded the project guidelines below.
Reminder: this assignment is due Monday, November 3.
To finish off the French Revolution and Napoleon sections, students researched and prepared some food from this historical era and shared their food with the class. Everyone did a fabulous job! I'm so proud of all of you. (We may have some future chefs in our midst)
On Tuesday, all grade 9 students were told about "Take your kid to work day" which takes place November 5. We sent them home with forms to be filled out by the students and their parents or guardians stating where they will be going to work.
The deadline for these forms is TOMORROW, please fill out the forms and return them to me or Mrs. Moody in Engish class.
They received an open-book assignment for these sections. I have uploaded the assignment below.
The due date for this work is Monday, November 3.
I have also uploaded the partners list for the assignment. If you were on the OP trip, please let me know ASAP who your chosen partner is and I will add you to the list.
Students read the story and will work on the comprehension questions and the setting assignment today and tomorrow.
**All of the questions/assignment must be finished for Monday.
ALL demand writing assignments (Three School Changes) are due at the beginnng of class tomorrow. Most students were working on their good copies at the end of class.
* The guidelines and notes for this assignment were posted in one of last weeks' postings.
