Students checked the Chapter 8 guided reading questions. The remainder of the hour, students read Chapter 9 and the Wiesel’s 1986 Nobel Prize Acceptance Speech orally as a class.
Students turned in Chapter 4 questions and then reviewed the concepts of dynamic vs. static characters and mood vs. tone. Students were given the hour to read Chapter 5 in their groups. For homework, Chapter 5 questions are due on Monday. Students should also be prepared to take a quiz over Chapters 4-5.
Students checked Chapter 7 questions, which were collected for a grade. Students then took a pop quiz over Chapters 6-7. For homework, students need to read Chapter 8 and complete the guided reading questions with the exception of the final question. We will answer the final question together in class on Monday.
Students finished checking the Chapter 1 quiz and the Chapter 3 guided reading questions, which were both collected. Students took a quiz over Chapters 2-3 for the remainder of the hour. Students received a symbolism worksheet, which is due tomorrow. They also received the guided reading questions for Chapter 4, which are due Friday. Students are encouraged to start this assignment tonight because Chapter 4 is rather long and the questions are more extensive.
Students checked vocabulary exercises #31-32, which was collected for a grade. Students also checked the Chapters 4-5 quiz that was given yesterday. Due to a lack of cooperation and an excess of disruption, students need to respond to question #8 from the Chapter 5 worksheet for homework. There simply was not enough time to complete the response in class after Mrs. Fisher repeatedly requested the class to listen. Remember the response must be written in paragraph format with two direct quotes for support. This response is due tomorrow for an essay grade. Students also need to read Chapter 6 and complete all the corresponding guided reading questions, due tomorrow.
Students were given the hour to take the Chapters 4-5 open book quiz and complete vocabulary exercises #31-32, which is due tomorrow.
Students were given time to read Chapter 3 and answer the guided reading questions with the guest teacher.
Students checked Chapter 2 questions in class, which were collected for a grade. Students also took an open book quiz over Chapter 1. This was not checked in class due to a lack of time. No additional homework was assigned.
Students checked Chapter 5 questions in class. Students were given the remainder of the hour to review the close and critical reading sections for Chapters 4-5 in their groups. There will be an open book quiz over Chapters 4-5 tomorrow.
Students checked Chapter 4 questions in class and began reading Chapter 5 orally. Students were given time in their groups to discuss the close and critical reading section. For homework, students need to finish reading Chapter 5 and complete the questions. Students should come to class on Monday prepared to discuss what they highlighted for the close and critical reading section. As a result of today’s great group discussions, the quiz over Chapters 4-5 will be postponed until Tuesday–provided that productive discussions continue on Monday so make sure you come prepared!
