The semester ends on January 28th. Please make sure that you have all of your work turned in on-time. See me if you have any questions. My grade book is up-to-date.
Open book writing assessment will begin on Thursday of this week and will end on Friday of this week. You will be connecting "The Hero's Journey" to Riordan's text. You must be up to chapter nine in the book to do so. I would advise you to check out the text Monday and Tuesday night to make sure you are successful for the open book test. This will be an 80% summative grade. Good Luck!
After a long hiatus, I have two posts for you in one day. Aren't you lucky?
Remember our discussion in class. You must take notes and keep them in order. Paginate (number) them.
The better you take notes and study every night, the more successful you will be. In class, I will help you focus on what will be on the test. I will pause and discuss different items with you. I will plan engaging activities with you. I will review the material with you. I will slow down if need be. BUT it's up to you to make sure that you have the proper materials to read and to study.
A student that studies for a test fifteen minutes a day for two weeks would study a total of 210 minutes (or 3.5 hours) and be quite successful on the test. A student that studies for 210 minutes the day before the test would be miserable and quite unsuccessful on the test.
Greetings. It's been a while.
We are starting to write about Riordan's text in an academic way. Try to work on your skills in class to hone this skill.
To be quite honest, I am impressed with your progress. Looking at your writing ability at the beginning of the year and comparing it your current writing ability yields a major difference. Yet as with any skill, you must continue to try to improve it.
The next few weeks will be hard. We are really going to attack the text in an academic way. Mrs. Carillo will join our class (as her schedule allows) to help refine this skill with sentence frames and new styles of writing.
Keep with it. Your future self will thank you.
