Week of October 10, 2016
FSA testing will impact our instructional time this week, but we are going to do our best to continue our work with Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales. Students have received a flipbook which contains questions to each section of the story we will be reading. Students are expected to keep up with the day-to-day note taking as they will be using these notes on their quizzes. Our main standards of focus for this unit will be on citing evidence to support inferences and analyzing a case in which grasping point of view requires distinguishing what is directly stated in a text from what is really meant (i.e. satire, sarcasm, irony, understatement, etc.).
Now that students have finished their college and career research, this week students will begin writing their college entrance essays. I encourage students to write essays they will actually use for college they plan to attend. The first draft of the first essay choice will be due next Wednesday at the beginning of class.
*Please note, if a student would like to attend the FSU tour on Tuesday, October 25th he/she should forward me the thank you email sent by FSU for their application submission no later than Monday, October 17th at 11:00am.
