January 18, 2018 (no slide show due to my absence)

Today I had to be out of school because Benno had another case of strep throat. Thankfully, he's okay and sorry for being out.

Hopefully you guys were able to finish the TDQs from Ch. 1 and 2. The crossword puzzle was just a review, but if anyone turned them in completed, I'll give some bonus points.

Regarding the bonus points, I have been trying to put them into Aeries but because there are so few assignments, it turns scores into 230%. So I'm dealing with that right now. I might have to wait until a few assignments are in before I put those into Aeries, but I am definitely giving bonus points for those assignments. 

Have a nice weekend and if you weren't here on Friday, please finish reading chapter 2. Here are the TDQs

Today we looked at an article on zoos and tried to organize the Concrete Details into a graphic organizer. Homework is to write a thesis statement. We also read up to the the Walter Cunningham part of Ch. 2 (it was different in different classes, but if you get to the part where the farm kids pull out their lunch buckets, you should be ready for tomorrows reading.

Today we went to the library, learned about the main genre and subgenre of To Kill a Mockingbird (Southern Gothic Bildungsroman) and finished chapter 1. The book and book on tape are linked on this website if you need to read or reread. I'd ask you not read ahead and if you do, don't reveal the plot points. 

We also looked at the houses on the block that some of you turned in. I'll try to get both those and the stock info into Aeries today. We also started planning our To Kill a Mockingbird party which is not a real party. But there's a lot of food involved and knowing about the food helps you understand to plot a bit better.

Today we wrote about weird houses in our neighborhood and started To Kill a Mockingbird. Please have stock assignment on google classroom. The picture of a house is a bonus, but the write up is due tomorrow for a stamp or stamps.

Today we were talked about the new late work policy and reviewed the rules. 

We also went over the causes of the Great Depression and took some basic notes on the timeline of To Kill a Mockingbird which we will start tomorrow (hopefully).
