On Wednesday, we took an AR test on the chromebooks. This took most of the class period.
We then briefly discussed the novel, Animal Farm. I assigned a Grammar Practice worksheet for homework. It is attached below.
On Friday, we began class with a quickwrite on the following prompt:
-What is a feature of our society that you could see possibly becoming problematic in the future? Why?
-Vacation: What was the highlight of your break?
After the quickwrite, students worked in groups on a worksheet/discussion guide for Animal Farm (it is attached below). Afterward we discussed the novel as a class.
For homework, read the attached article on fake news stories vs. real news stories and complete the attached questions. Also, we will be beginning a character analysis essay soon. For the first step of this assignment, see the starred section of the final attachment below.
Both of these items are due next class.
