Thursday- Write!!!

On your OneNote, write your final essay.

Here are the instructions for your Core Competency Reflection that is due tomorrow:

  1. Choose an “artifact” (an assignment you have done this semester) that shows the greatest growth in one of the Core Competencies. It can be an essay, spoken word, reading response, PechaKucha….Riverside CC’s Self Assessment Document (2)
  2. In a well structured paragraph, (a) explain how this artifact showed growth. (b) Be detailed and reference the competencies in the profiles. (c) what would you do better next time? To move up the profile?
  3. TAG: look at the bottom of the document- what hashtag does it want you to use? Use it….
  4. EMAIL me the link to your blog
  5. If you follow the instructions and do all three portions (see #2 above), TAG it properly, show some level of insight, it will be full marks.

 

Wednesday- Snow Day

I hope you all turned over and went back to sleep this morning.

Today we were going to read “Ultimate Safari” as a practice for the reading test on Friday. It is not mandatory but it is a good story and I like how it shows Irony. There is nothing special about the writing style, unlike “Up in Michigan”, or the poetic devices, but the irony, point of view and theme is important. Read if you want.

We were also going to do your “Core Competency Reflection” today. Riverside CC’s Self Assessment Document (2)

The handout below will help you do this reflection well, and I wanted to go over it with you first. I have attached it for your reference anyway. If you would like to do your reflection today because you feel confident you know what you are doing, by all means do. One less thing to complete tomorrow. If you still have questions, I will go over it quickly tomorrow.

Tuesday- Final Exam Prep

The decisions have been made and the outline created. In summary there are three parts to the final exam worth 15% of the mark. They will be written on Thursday and Friday of next week. We will spend the next few days reviewing and practicing by reading another story and practicing writing with insight and sophistication.

Here is the outline:

Here are the sources we examined in class:

Friday- work on poem analysis

Today, do the following:

  • No Red Ink – Conclusions
  • Find all the copies of the sources from this class. Have them available
  • Do the following exercise with a partner (I will choose your partner)

Monday- Welcome Back!!

Notes for the next two weeks:

Today

  • Sophisticate your sentences – Improving Interest
  • NoRedInk– There are quite a few assignments. The first one to finish is “Deadwood“. Today, you are to do “Formal and Informal“. If you want to jump ahead, you may, but you don’t have to.
  • Free Write in OneNote. Write a chunky paragraph keeping the “deadwood” and the “informal” language in check. Sophisticate that vocab and add detail just like we did in the first assignment today. You will have 20 minutes to sweat it out.
  • Expository Paragraph Prompt: Success is a journey, not a destination. 
  • Synthesis essay corrections.
    • corrections
    • reflection on good and bad- goal setting for next essay
    • two-three images that reflect the themes of your sources
    • Due Friday at the latest. TAG: Synthesis12
