WARNING! the due dates on the "college essay" document are not correct.  These are the due dates:
1. Brainstornming (on paper) due to ME on class this Thurs, 5/24. You must have this to start on a laptop. Feel free to bring your own if you want to do so. 
2. On Thurs, 5/24, you should have accomplished quite a bit of the draft which I want to see for points on Friday.  
3. On Wednesday, 5/30, you are assigned to work in the media center.  You should print your paper if you are finished with it. Final copy is due either on Thurs (5/31) or on Friday (6/1). If you are going to be out on Friday, it MUST be turned in on Thurs, or it will be 20% off for late points. You can do this! It is all about YOU!

See an example of a class's questions, or comments, or observations...This is a model of the kind of those I want to see in your notes on a daily reading basis.  It is essential that you do this so that you get a notebook grade.  I will use it for the homework assignment.

March 19-23 (3 docs)

We have been reading our Independent Reads since we finished TGG last week.  Now I am reviewing grammar in class with infrequent quizzes to check mastery. I am attaching a doc for the comma rules...assuming you understand sentence types. I had this review on the board all week.  Also, I am adding a list of subordinating conjunctions, so that you recognize them for a quiz.

We will keep reading and reviewing all week with the exception of Thurs when you will be registering for the SAT.  Counselors will assist you in completing this task.

A few students will be presenting on Weds this week. I am open for anyone to present next week. Just make sure that your powerpoint is in Google Classroom prior to class.  I will also attach a rubric for this tri-fold assignment.
