English 10 Honors--10/31/2016

Jump Off (flex time)
--Turn in your short story by placing it in the black basket on the front table.
--Pick up the "'The Masque of the Red Death' Assessment" from the front table.  Complete the assessment quietly and independently back at your desk.  I'll be honest--I have no idea how long it will take you to finish.  I'll give you as much time as you need, though.  Good luck!
--When you finish taking the assessment, come up to the front table and...
  • place your assessment in the black basket
  • pick up a copy of a short story written by one of your peers
  • pick up a copy of the "Short Story Writing Assignment #1--Partner Feedback for Moving Forward" document
    S. the C. (share with approximately 10 mins. remaining)

    Writing Workshop -- Short Story Writing Assignment #1--Partner Feedback for Moving Forward (flex time)

    --carefully read and follow the directions on the feedback document while interacting with your partner's story
    --When you finish, engage in one of the following activities quietly and independently:
    • free reading
    • Membean training
    --partner share (time permitting)

    HW (Practice/Take-Home Assessment)
    --Complete a total of 45 minutes of Membean training as directed before 11:59 PM on Thursday, 11/3.  If you fail to appropriately train between now and the administration of Vocabulary Quiz #3, you will not be permitted to take the quiz until you catch up (see the "Membean Routine" document).
    --If you were unable to do so today, considering touching base with your partner about your short story.  I will collect any short stories next class so that you have an opportunity to make improvements (unless you are completely satisfied with your story already in which case, I'll take it!).
    --Read your free reading book for at least 15 minutes between now and next class.  ALWAYS BRING YOUR FREE READING BOOK TO CLASS!  You have up until the first week of December to finish your book.
