English 10 Honors--5/15/2017

Jump Off
--Write your name on the back of the picture that you printed out for the south wall of the classroom.  Place your picture in the black basket on the front table.
--Pick up the following from the front table: 
  • a lined 3 X 5 card
  • your "Mrs. Donohue" sheet from last class block
  • the "English 10 Honors End-of-Course Assignment" document
--Brainstorm some goals for today's library block to add to the list below:
  • Use varied search terms to find potential sources, skimming for both relevance and credibility.
    • Each time you find a relevant and credible source, print/copy the source so that you have easy access to it when it comes time to purposefully read.
  • After finding a source that you have little to no doubt you will use, input the source in NoodleTools so as to build your Works Cited page.
  • Leave with at least one credible piece of literary criticism and two pieces of nonfiction.
S. the C.
--set some rough goals
--create a "Compact for Work Time"

--journey on over to the library


HW (Class Preparation)
--Find and print out another picture for the south wall of our classroom.  (Perhaps you can find something in the library today related to one of your sources?)  Bring the picture for collection at the beginning of class next time (Wednesday, 5/17).
--Complete a "UB Discussion Card" while/after reading up to the end of page 71 of An Ordinary Man.  The expectation is that your card consists of at least two potential contributions for discussion.  Discussions about An Ordinary Man will be driven by all of you via a drawing of name cards.  This assignment is to be completed by next class (Wednesday, 5/17).  
--Following each section of reading of An Ordinary Man, I reserve the right to administer a "Did You Read?" assessment similar to those we have taken in the past.  If you have completed a successful reading, said assessment should not be challenging at all! :)

--Aim to read at least 5-10 pages of your free reading book between now and next class.  ALWAYS BRING YOUR FREE READING BOOK TO CLASS!
HW (Class Preparation)/Writing
--Continue moving forward with regard to the End-of-Course Assignment.  We will head to the library again next class (Wednesday, 5/17).

On the backburner:
  • Paraphrasing AoW as preparation for culminating assignment
  • Counterargument lesson/AoW as preparation for culminating assignment
  • ACT nonfiction passages and multiple choice questions
