Bellringer -- grammar work
8 -- Hi, everyone. This is a reminder that you need to watch and complete the Interview Questions EDpuzzle video if you haven't already. You can find it here. Be sure you sign in. Also, if you did not turn in your first set of notes at the end of class, get that to me tomorrow. It is late with each day that passes!
7 -- Really great class today, everyone. You all did really well focusing on your notes. Be sure to finish the second source before class Friday.
7 -- Great work in your classes today, everyone. You all did well at identifying the different text features in your articles and sharing with the class. As you read about your 30-Day Challenge topic, think of different text features you can include in your article.
7 -- Hello, everyone. Really good work in your small groups today. Many of you are really doing well working as a team. We will finish the text features activity tomorrow.
If you did not turn in your Initial research for your 30-Day Challenge article, turn it in tomorrow for up to 90%!
8 -- Hi, everyone. Great classes today. Good review on the text structures. On Thursday we will finish the practice we began in class today.
Remember, if you did not turn in your initial research handout today, you should turn it in to the In-coming basket in the classroom as soon as you can.
**Source for your Docu-fest project:
If you are still looking for good sources for your project, try Pro/Con.org. They have a lot of good information and links to credible sources.
8 -- You all have had some awesome classes this week. Good work on your text structures and getting started on your documentary research. We will continue to practice with text structures, and you will have a quiz the week after next (Tuesday, February 21)!
7 -- Nice work over the last couple of classes. You are doing well at identifying text features. We will continue to work with these, as you will be incorporating them into your own 30-Day Challenge article. Remember, you will have a quiz on these the week after next on Wednesday, February 22!
Today you worked really well on your initial research. Be sure to complete the last articles before our next class. Also, look for videos that you think will help your readers understand your topic better. Create a Google Doc to save the links.
8 -- Good afternoon, everyone. Good work on identifying credible sources today. As we continue with creating our documentaries, you will need to check each of your sources with the handout we used today to evaluate websites.
7 -- Get pumped up for your 30-Day Challenge! This weekend you should be thinking about what you want to do for the next 30 days. Pick something that will add something positive to your life, that is challenge, and that you can accomplish (remember, you will be doing this on Saturdays and Sundays, too!)
