Week Eleven (3.23-3.27):

IIP Reflection Link

Monday:

Some test prep as you prepare for the Iowa Assessment Reading test this week. We will discuss proven test strategies, work a sample passage, and make sure each of you knows where and when your test is. I will also discuss the extra credit offered for those who meet the growth goal on the reading test.

Then we will continue with Hamlet.

Make sure you have shared your first draft of “The Things I Carry” with me by class time today.

Tuesday:

I will be proctoring Iowa Assessment Reading tests all day, so you will report to the media center where a substitute will take attendance.

You are to share your “The Things I Carry” draft with at least two of your classmates. Then you should be responding to your classmates using our response protocol. Once you have received comments from your classmates, start revising for the final draft, which is due tomorrow. You need to post your final draft in the forum by class time tomorrow.

You should also respond to at least two SFIS students on that forum. Ideally, you should respond to students with whom you have already built a relationship online.

Wednesday (shortened classes): We will continue our work with Hamlet, both the play and film versions.

Breaking News!

Thursday:

I will be proctoring Iowa Assessment Reading tests all day, so you will report to the media center where a substitute will take attendance.

Because of this, we will be switching our usual Thursday and Friday routines. Although your IIP reflection is still due by the end of the class Friday, your class time to work on it will be today. Use it well.

Friday: We will continue our work with Hamlet, both the play and film versions.
