Another short week

For all you thespians, Tech Week has arrived. Muster all the patience you can for this arduous process. In class we will be pushing the "play" button on our essay process. Remember I said I would be introducing the essay, then pushing "PAUSE" for the puppet show.

Purim was an astounding success, as I knew it would be. You all were totally focused on the process and the product. You made adorable puppets, which are waiting for you to claim them in the classroom. The students at the Lower School were mesmerized! Kol haKavod to each and every one of you. Thank you for demonstrating kehillah, ruach, kavod and FUN!

See my Twitter feed for photographs of the shows and the days leading up to and including Friday.


Monday is a regular schedule. Tuesday and Wednesday are "A" schedule days.
You may take your Vocabulary & Roots Unit 10 test on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday (no later than 5pm on Wednesday) via Socrative. Same class code: 7901110.

On Monday I will provide information about how your essay should be structured, as well as suggest tips for keeping track of your research using Google Slides.

On Tuesday I will explain parenthetical annotation and how to use EasyBib as a Chrome add-on.

On all three days, use your remaining class time to work on researching and pre-writing. You may use Webspiration, Google, hand-writing, or any other program you choose for your pre-writing. No matter which method you choose, you  MUST turn in your pre-writing with your final essay.
I don't have a due date yet. I will know the due date next week.

Homework: Complete pp. 150-157 in Easy Grammar by Wednesday, and be reading A Wrinkle in Time.  The pacing chart is under Important Links.
