Hi kids, this weekends you will need to continue your research to finish the research worksheet given to you today. Please click on the "TENTH GRADE" link and continue to "Research from home".
There is a brief tutorial reviewing what we learned toda
I am not sure what happened but one of my students experienced an error with the download for the study guide.
So, here is another version for you all. Click here for the Google Doc
If you are logged into your Google you can also make a copy of this document into your library.
For the 9th Grade, you will have a vocabulary test on part one of Fahrenheit 451. Although the test will not be until March, I wanted to use a new tool, Quizlet. This tool will help you learn and also test you.
On the bottom right of the widget you can select flash cards, and have the "Speak It" option pronounce the words for you.
Pretty simple stuff.
Forget the worksheet here are some questions:pages 3-24There is a limited preview of the book here, but all these can be answered from what was read in class.
Your study guide for the To Kill a Mockingbird test, remember it is Monday 2/27.
And Tuesday you must have your topic ready to research!
The T-Shirt Project template- Decorate a t-Shirt that would be worn by a character from To Kill a Mockingbird.
Hey kids, completely non-work related post.
The cupcakes to raise money for the rest of the Fahrenheit 451 collection are done. Here are the pictures to prove it.
Hi Students, there is something for both grade levels in this post.
First, my 9th Graders, we began Fahrenheit today and already began to see that fire plays a key roll in the movie. Extra credit: How is fire first described in the book, and how does it compare with the description below? Post your answer in the comments section.
10th Graders, a slight change to the HW:
The statement "Our courts are great levelers, in our courts, all men are created equal?" Do you believe this to be true? How do you believe this situation would be handled in the current time period?
Re-read pages 193-194, according to Tom's testimony who is really responsible for the crimes against Mayella? This part is left out of the court scene.
Read the book burning packet and answer the questions on the back for homework.
Super simple, read the first 5 pages of chapter 19 in To Kill a Mockingbird. Be sure to pay attention to Scout's perceptions as Tom Robinson is questioned.
Answer the following questions regarding Antigone. Period H, you will not be able to answer question 6, as we have not yet finished the play.
Here is a video of Antigone's final speech for anyone who would like to watch.
Active and Passive voices. Please finish the worksheet that I assigned you for homework. The file is below if you misplaced yours. Also, remember there will be reading questions on chapter 18 of To Kill a Mockingbird tomorrow as a "Do Now"
I also thought it would be useful to have a video reviewing what we learned in class. Remember, it is easier to decipher the active versus the passive voice if you locate the "agent" first.
While reading Antigone we are going to focus on developing our vocabulary. The homework tonight is straight from your text on page 542. If you forgot your text I embedded a picture of it below.
