September 24, 2013: What's Happening in English 10?

Focus: Do I need to make up work for this class? What Level 2 and Level 3 questions do I have regarding The Kite Runner so far?

1. Warm-up: Since this Friday marks the end of the first six weeks, I would like you to take a moment to look carefully at your grades for this class, keeping in mind the following:
  • All make-up work, late work, and redos/retakes must be completed by this Friday for credit.  This includes missed fishbowl blogs, retakes on vocabulary quizzes, Kite Runner annotations, vocabulary flashcards, and any other work collected over the past six weeks.

  • Remember that if you missed an outer circle day on the fishbowl, you must make up the blog by posting an extended response on that blog that includes at least one quotation from the assigned chapters.  This also applies if you took a day to read instead of participating on the outer circle.  Let Mrs. Boldman know if you post an extended response so it can be graded.

  • If you are planning to make up any grades, please speak with Mrs. Boldman right now to develop a plan to ensure it gets taken care of by this Friday.

  • If your grades in this class are fine, then use this time to work on your List 4 SAT flashcards.
