This week in H1:
We're still behind on making handbooks. The wrong size covers arrived, so now we have to wait until the correct ones arrive to start assembling.
This week students will be creating open-ended discussion questions over ALL of our texts in preparation for Friday's seminar discussion. 6 total level-2 questions on Zootopia, the excerpt from Internment, the poem "Hanging Fire" and the article/TED Talk over "The Dangers of a Single Story."
This week we're pairing our analysis of Zootopia with other readings intending to draw out some similar concepts and perhaps discover thematic strains in all of them.
We have picture day on Wednesday and our first vocabulary test on Thursday. Seminar day on Friday! I can't wait to hear all the discussion!
This week in H2:
Our Google forms were due on Monday morning. I'm hoping my chickens gave some thought to what they want to study for the entire year. I think that they are really going to love this.
We're continuing through The Kite Runner and will finish our reading and discussion this week. Chickens, I hope you love this book as much as I love it. It is such a rich and beautiful novel; I hope this is one of those stories that stick with you.
Sophomores have their first AoW due this week as well as Vocabulary test #16! As much as I've been harping on it in class, I really hope that y'all have been reviewing your words from last year.
Seminar discussion on Friday! Seriously, there isn't a day that I love my kids more than on seminar days. I love, Love, LOVE hearing everyone's conversations on days like these.
