Looking Ahead: September 23, 2015

Focus: How can we set ourselves up for a successful week and a successful year?

1. Warming up with expectations for our field trip to the Forum to meet with the counselors

2. Returning to the classroom for an overview of
  • Setting up your accounts
  • Submitting your draft
  • Using "Grademark" to find and fix grammatical and stylistic issues
3. If time allows, signing up for for The Kite Runner fishbowl discussions

1. Please read and annotate/complete a reading journal entry for Chapters 7 and 8 by tomorrow; I will be checking annotations throughout the week, so make sure they are up to date and with you each day in class.

2. Complete your vocabulary cards for Chapters 1-6 by tomorrow.

3. This Friday, September 25, marks two important deadlines for this class:
  • Final drafts of the summary-response are due in (we will set up your accounts tomorrow) by 3:00 pm. Remember that final drafts are, in fact, final and cannot be revised.
  • Any revised work/retaken quizzes are due by the end of this day. You may use class time on Friday to revise journals or retake quizzes. If you requested to retake a quiz in the letter you wrote on Friday, your quiz is waiting for you in
