Monday: Honest Chat
Today was likely a bit of a shock for many of you in terms of how prepared you are for the IB World Exams in English. I hope that you all are able to digest this information and create a mindset that will allow you to game plan with me on Wednesday to best resolve this situation we find ourselves in together.
Assignment: Print out every assessment that you did last year and bring me a hard copy on Wednesday, August 17, 2016.
Assignment: Find a copy of “The Stranger” and bring it with you to class for Friday. Hint: Read some of it before Friday as well. I’d go with the first part if I were you.
Wednesday: Class Norming
Today I introduced the clip board to you as well as EIC (English in the classroom) points.
We covered plagiarism and academic honesty. You can find a link to the PP here. You will have a quiz on this in near future, so keep this in mind for review.
Assignment: Get parent signature on plagiarism contract and return it on Friday, August 19, 2016.
Assignment: Start reading “The Stranger” in preparation for class on Friday and so that this weekend is not all about reading this text.
Friday: Introduction Presentations and “The Stranger”
Great presentations today, people. I have a good idea of where our collective spoken competency is, and I can start planning from here.
We started working with “The Stranger” today.
Assignment: SG 1-4 completed before class on Tuesday, August 23. SG 5-6 + Section 1 Chapter 1-2 will be due completed before class on Thursday, August 25.
