English 10 Honors--5/19/2017

Jump Off
--Pick up a lined 3 X 5 card from the front table.

S. the C.
--Where are we?  Where should we end up?
  • share out via a drawing of cards
--review our "Compact for Work Time" (with provisions)
  • Computers assigned via a drawing of cards
  • 5 minutes off task

--journey on over to the library


HW (Class Preparation)
--Complete 45 minutes of Membean training as directed before 11:59 PM on Thursday, 5/25.  If you fail to appropriately train between now and the administration of Vocabulary Quiz #6, you will not be permitted to take the quiz until you catch up (see the "Membean Routine" document).
--Complete a "UB Discussion Card" while/after reading up to the end of page 124 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 (Tuesday, 5/23).
--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 (might?!) head to the library again on Thursday,  5/25.  More on this next class block!

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
