I’m back, everyone!!
Sorry I was gone so long! In apology, here’s a picture of a baby 🙂
So now that I’m back, let’s start by finding out what you guys did while I was gone! Then I suppose we should do some review for your FINAL EXAM because it’s…dun dun DUUUUN!!! TOMORROW!!!
Man, time flies when you’re not here, seems like just yesterday we were only 10 weeks into the semester…
Standard: RL.9-10.9. Analyze how an author draws on and transforms source material in a specific work (e.g., how Shakespeare treats a theme or topic from Ovid or the Bible or how a later author draws on a play by Shakespeare).
Learning Target: Students will demonstrate their knowledge of Julius Caesar on a test after a gallery walk of their posters.
Activator: 5 minutes of study time
Today we’re going to start with a gallery walk of the posters you made earlier this week. Remember, the winning poster team gets 5 points extra credit added onto today’s test grade!!!
And speaking of tests, that’s our plan for today after the gallery walk! We will have the remainder of class to finish your test. After that, you guys can have some time to hang out, because I don’t want to start the next unit quite yet. As a sidenote, I may not be back on Monday *cross your fingers for me* but if I am, when I get here we’re starting MONSTERS!!!
Learning Target: Students will work on their study guide and Julius Caesar essay.
Activator: The Animated Julius Caesar
Welcome back to THURSDAY! Today we’re going to take some time in class to (by hand) finish your Julius Caesar essays. Hardly anyone finished while we were in the lab on Monday, so we are going to finish them today! I’ll give you guys to the skinny bell where all you’re allowed to do is work on the essay unless it’s finished and turned in.
After that, if you would like to work on your study guide for tomorrow’s test (dun dun DUN!!!!) then you may do so. That’ll be all we get done today, and remember, tomorrow is test day!!!!! Also, enjoy the animated Caesar while you work on your study guide 🙂
