Six Weeks Strong: September 25, 2015

Focus: What do we need to accomplish to stay on top of the game?

1. Warming up with setting your goal: What are you going to accomplish in the next 40 minutes?

Start your sentence with "I will..."

2. Taking time to get your English 10 self into shape:

Is your summary-response done?

      Have you included a title?

      Have you removed all editing comments (including mine)?

      Have you successfully submitted it to the "Final Draft" folder in

      Remember these are due by 3 pm today.

Do you need to retake any grammar quizzes?

Do you need to revise any of your old reading journals?

Are any of your grades in IC incorrect? Come talk to me right now.

Are you on schedule for your independent reading book?

Are you caught up with your Kite Runner reading and journals/annotations?

Do you aspire to be ahead of the game? Chapters 9 and 10 are due Tuesday.
