Today student are to turn in their reflection on an item that they may have fixated on while trying to acheive a goal. Verbally it may or may not have been announced in class to elaborate up to 200 words or 300 words. Going forward, any assignment will have a 300 word minimum as a standard unless otherwise indicated.
The following graphic organizer was used to develop literal sentences:
Students were asked to develop sentences such as
1. I ate a sandwich.
2. I fell in love.
3. I ran to the store.
Protocol to get your work back in the books?
1. Make an appointment during an Extra Help session from 3-4:00 on Thursdays.
2. Make an appointment during a different time we are both available. DO NOT STAND ME UP. This is a privilege given to students who have already once come to an Extra Help session because you have demonstrated already that you can keep appointments.
**getting your book "reconciled" is YOUR responsibility. Not mine. Additionally, if you stand me up three times or more, you have revoked your right to seek extra help for the quarter and a letter will go home to your parents notifying them.
**Pay attention to the section differences for homework 2**
1. Rewrite your item memoir you wrote for homework, this time including sentences that include literal, figurative and symbolic language. Minimum: 500 words. If you need a hard copy of your original and I have it, please see me.
2. (Section 1 and 2) Finish reading and annotating My Greatest Ambition. If you need a copy of the text or need to pick up your book, please see me. (Section 3) Read and annotate Fly in the Ointment by Pritchard.
3. Post a sentence that you developed in class that you think you did the best job on. An example would be:
IGCSE English Y2 - (1, 2 or 3)
Literal Sentence: I ate a sandwich.
Edit 1: I inhaled the turkey, bacon sandwich on bread speckled with grain my mom made for me.
Edit 2: The cold cut gave in to the grinder-like rotation of my teeth and the bacon unearthed its flavor. The bread was speckled with grain and I looked up at her just in time so my forehead met the weight of her hand.
Edit 3: The bread speckled with grain jacketed the cold cuts and bacon that gave in to the grinder-like rotation of my teeth. The suction and slapping of eating filled my head so much so that I failed to hear my mother's beckoning to take a bite of her apple. I looked up at her just in time so my forehead met the weight of her hand.
