Students will use this day to finish any/all booklet work. This will be the last day for working on the booklet in class. Afterwards, students will have to complete the activities at home or during SMART Lunch.
Once they have finished their warmups, students in each class will continue to work on their individual booklets.
For their warmups today, students will be asked to respond to a Google Form survey that gets their opinion for how the class is going thus far in the school. Once they have completed the survey, they will continue working on their booklets.
After completing warmups, students will move on to finish their booklets individually in each class.
Once they've completed their warm-up for the day, students in all classes will be given a booklet with instructions. This booklet will walk students through a variety of individual activities. They will take notes on various topics as well as read 2 selections and ultimately construct an essay in response to a final prompt. They will have the week to complete their work.
