After SSR, you were given the rest of the hour to play catch-up. You had time to work on the Act II Q’s/Choices packet or any work you needed to make up for this unit. I also gave students the ability to check their grades/missing work with me.
THE ACT III QUIZ IS TOMORROW!
After finishing our “Civil Disobedience” conversation, we moved into groups to begin changing the method through which we find meaning in poetry with “Men Say They Know Many Things.” Good job
You shared in your poetry groups a little bit of your timeline before turning it in and beginning to read Emerson’s piece. Read and annotate as needed for Thursday. The PDF is attached in the most recent Honors 11 post.
We have just finished Act III (quiz Thursday). The following quiz-related materials are due Thursday:
Act III Questions
Act III Choices
I also assigned The Crucible Diary Project today. It will have a rolling deadline. You may turn it in next Friday before break on December 20th, 2013 or when we return on January 3rd, 2014.
We also edited and submitted a clean, perfect copy of your letter to your author today.
After a brief discussion, you were given these questions to complete regarding Thoreau’s “Civil Disobedience”. We continued our conversation with Thoreau’s piece. Afterwards you were given the poem “Men Say They Know Many Things” to annotate.
Your “Who Are You?” timeline is due tomorrow. Be ready to share.
Here’s a Quick Transcendentalist Reference Guide.
For Thursday, here’s Emerson’s “On the American Scholar.”
We finished Act III today, and afterwards, we continued working on the quote analysis work from Friday. It is due tomorrow.
There will be an Act III quiz Thursday.
Letters will be returned to you tomorrow (3rd hour already got theirs). Do not lose that–my edits are to be changed tomorrow/Wednesday very carefully. If you didn’t get me your letter yet, please do so by tonight, so I can edit it for tomorrow.
Today, we began by taking some notes on the attached PowerPoint (a brief introduction to Transcendentalism). After you were assigned the “Who Are You?” Timeline Project for Wednesday.
Tonight’s reading is Civil Disobedience by Henry David Thoreau. Come in ready to discuss tomorrow.
Your 300-word stories are almost graded. They are awesome! We will begin Act III tomorrow of The Crucible after we submit the final drafts of our letters to our authors. These will be edited over the weekend and then fixed to be mailed on Monday. Third hour took the Act II quiz re-do which hopefully will better your scores.
