Today we took Quiz #3 for our class novel and wrote our creative summaries on our laptops. Make sure that you and your partner write your summaries on the same sheet of paper and print it out and staple it to the writer's notebook from last time.
Day 13: TFIOS Quiz #2 and An imperial Affliction/The Price of dawn creative summary assignment (APril 23)
Today we took our second quiz and turned in our anticipation guide for our novel. The second half of class, we analyzed the plot summaries for An Imperial Affliction and The Price of Dawn for the writing assignment next class. We will be creating fictional summaries for either of those fictional books.
Today we read and took our first The Fault in our Stars quiz. We responded to a video about a girl who had osteosarcoma, and we prepped for the rest of the book by doing the anticipation guide in groups.
Today we wrote our book reports. Make sure that you get the assignment from me and respond on Google Classroom before Thursday at midnight.
Today we finished Sage testing. After students finished their Sage, we read for the rest of class in preparation for the book reports next class on Tuesday, April 17th. I gave students points for reading at the end of class.
Today we took the Sage reading test and I reminded the class to be ready with your books read by next Tuesday. Friday, after people finish the test, we'll have a pseudo-readathon so you can read a good chunk of your books in preparation for the book report next week.
Today we finished prepping for the SAGE test. Make sure that you are in class this week to take the test. Also, we talked about your bucket list assignment and watched a TED Talk called "Living beyond Limits" by Amy Purdie. We discussed the TED Talk and how it applies to our essential question, "What is the difference between living and exisiting?" in preparation to read our last novel of the year.
