All classes will begin with 5 minutes to work on their vocabulary boxes followed by 10 minutes of DEAR time.
English I - 1st and 3rd
After DEAR time, students will work in small groups to finish reading "The Seventh Man." Students will then go on to work with a partner and create a $5.00 summary. For their summary, each word costs $0.10. Once they have come up with their summary, they will get into their Hogwarts Houses. As a house, they will read through all of the summaries and either pick one or create a new one. This summary will then be written on a sheet of post-it poster paper and presented the class. The House with the best summary will receive 25 points.
English I Honors - 2nd
After DEAR time, students will complete their assigned readings of "The Odyssey." They will then get into their first set of Jigsaw Groups. The members of these groups will be those students who read the same assigned sections. They will discuss 4-6 major events that take place in each section as well as identify 2-3 details that are learned about Odysseus in those sections.
