It took a few more days than I expected, but I’m finally getting the time to post the first announcement dedicated to parents instead of the students. I am hoping this turns out well for all of us following my utter disappointment that we couldn’t use Google Classroom.
Here are some highlights for this week:
English 9H – students are continuing their chapter presentations for their classmates. They should be working independently to accomplish their share of the group project.
How you can help: remind them to use the resources I posted for them on Google classroom (the grading rubric, the full text of the Odyssey, presentation schedules). When in doubt, you may remind them to email me at: http://email@example.com
English 9 – Students should be following the reading assignments that were given out on GREEN bookmarks. They may read alone, read aloud or access the audio-book that is attached to Google Classroom. I’ve been supplementing with film scenes during classes, but we will NOT watching the entire movie.
How you can help:It might be fun if you stream or order the movie from Netflix, make some popcorn and watch the whole film together. We are watching the 1968 Franco Zefferelli version, NOT the newer, yucky, Leonardo DiCaprio version – which was not very good at all. There was a quiz today in class and there will be more to follow.
