Checking In: September 18, 2015

Focus: How's it going? What do you need?

1. Warming up with Dear Ms. Leclaire...

The Personal
  • So, what do you do when you're not at school? What's the rest of your day like?
  • What's going well?
  • What's not going well?
  • Anything happening at home that might be affecting your school self?

The Academic
  • How do you feel about your classes right now?
  • What's going well?
  • What's not going well?
  • What can I do to help you?
  • What can you do to help yourself?

Optional: Make-Up Work
  • Are there any assignments/quizzes you plan on redoing/retaking by next Friday? Please list them specifically (particularly if you're retaking a grammar quiz).
  • Are there any incorrect grades in IC? Take a moment to e-mail me anything that needs to be fixed.

2. Relaxing into your independent reading books or The Kite Runner

3. Offering you a little gift from the 90s

1. By Monday, finish reading and annotating Chapters 1, 2  and 3 of The Kite Runner; annotate by asking questions, drawing inferences, finding patterns, etc. using sticky notes or a reading journal; when you can, try to answer some of your questions. What reading strategies can you use to understand these opening chapters?

2. Continue working on your summary-response draft; final draft due September 25.

3. By next Wednesday, finish your Kite Runner vocab cards (using Quizlet, a different vocab app, or good old-fashioned index cards) for the first 15 words of the following list: Chapters 1-6 .
