CardinalCon: Common Writing Errors

WELCOME TO CARDINALCON!!!!!!

Hello everyone! You’re here in my room because your English teacher thought you could use some extra help with errors in your writing. Today we will be learning about common errors in writing and how to fix them!

Standard: 

ELAGSE9-10L1 Demonstrate command of the conventions of Standard English grammar and usage when writing or speaking.

  1. Use parallel structure.*
  2. Use various types of phrases (noun, verb, adjectival, adverbial, participial, prepositional, absolute) and clauses (independent, dependent; noun, relative, adverbial) to convey specific meanings and add variety and interest to writing or presentations.

Learning Target: Students will examine common writing errors and work together to fix them.

Activator: 

Ok, everyone! So, let’s get things started with a little quiz….no not that kind of quiz! A fun one! This is called the Grammar Income Test. Based on how good you are at writing and at catching errors, you can predict what your income will be when you’re grown! Pretty cool, right? Let’s see how well you score!

(Ok, it’s not 100% accurate. I didn’t get any wrong, and I sure don’t make that much money, LOL!)

After we’ve done the Grammar Income Test, I’m going to pass out two things to you – one, a sheet of twelve common writing errors and two, an essay with a whole lot of mistakes! Let’s start out by trying on our own – take a few minutes to work on the front page and see how many errors you can catch and correct. Then, when you get to the back, find a partner and work with them to find all the errors on the back half!

After everyone has had a chance to go through the bad essay example, we’re going to go over it together while I make corrections on the document camera 🙂

Once that’s done, if we have time, everyone will get a chance to trick their neighbors – I want you to write a sentence with an error or two in it, and then trade with your neighbor. Neighbors, you have to correct your partner’s sentence!

Stick your corrected sentence sticky notes up on the board when you’re done 🙂

And that’s today, everyone! I hope you had a fabulous CardinalCon session!!

Correction: It’s Friday!

Hey y’all, I don’t know if you remember, but WE ARE OFF NEXT WEEK!!!! WINTER BREAK WHAT WHAT!!!!

Standard:

  • RL.9-10.2. Determine a theme or central idea of a text and analyze in detail its development over the course of the text, including how it emerges and is shaped and refined by specific details; provide an objective summary of the text.
  • RL.9-10.3. Analyze how complex characters (e.g., those with multiple or conflicting motivations) develop over the course of a text, interact with other characters, and advance the plot or develop the theme.

Learning Target: Students will remediate their knowledge of Animal Farm by correcting their tests, and reflect on why they missed the questions they did. They will also read the second half of part II of The Metamorphosis.

Activator: Franz Kafka Rock Opera!

Welcome to class everyone! Today we will be reading the second half of part II of The Metamorphosis, using the same strategy we did yesterday where I read a paragraph, then you, then me, and so on. Part II of the story is really the meat of it, and we can see Gregor become more and more isolated as the story progresses. I hope you all are enjoying it!!!

Next up…. TEST CORRECTIONS! Yes, you’ve been asking for it, you’ve been begging for it, I finished grading them, it’s time to earn some points back!!! Here’s the skinny!

  • You must write the correct answer in different color pen/pencil than your original answer. Do NOT erase/scribble out your original answer!
  • In order to earn ANY points back, you must complete the reflection/goal setting form! If you do not fill out this form, I don’t care how awesome your corrected answers are, YOU WILL NOT GET POINTS BACK!!!!
  • You can earn full points back – that means you can go from a 6 to a 100 if you correct everything.
  • You must work individually on the corrections. This isn’t a group activity!

When you finish test corrections, turn them in and finish up your baby book from yesterday 🙂

Closing: Turn in your corrections and HAVE A GOOD BREAK!!!

Assessment: Points can be earned back for the Animal Farm unit test.

Differentiation: Varied reading strategies (audio, individual, group, etc.)

Crash Course!

Learning Target

Scholars will remediate the standards in which they have shown weaknesses and do an enrichment activity if they do not need remediation.
 

Work Session

Welcome to Remediation Wednesday! You know the drill – if I give you a remediation packet, you need to complete that. Otherwise, you can do the class enrichment activity!

We’re going to split into teams and play Online Boggle. You guys will play versus each other and versus me! Winner will earn themselves some extra credit, or maybe maybe a piece of candy 🙂

Good luck and good boggling everyone!
