E-Learning Days are Always on Website. Scroll Down to the Date We Have an E-Learning Day.
E-Learning Day: 1-5-18
1. Type up a Taming of the Shrew Potfolio. The directions are attached. Although you can copy-paste much information such as the character list, make sure the last section is in your own words. This is due the first day we get back.
2. Your next novel will come from the National Book Award website (below). Choose either fiction or young adult (any year). You will need two choices picked out by the time we finish presentations (next week). Investigate the books on the internet and also on Amazon or other such venues to see if you will like it. Everyone has to do a different selection. Bring two printouts (from Amazon or wherever) by the time we finish presentations. Use your e-learning day to hunt around for a good book!
Week 1: Jan. 8-12
FRIDAY: E-Learning Day: Go to "renaissance place" and take the STAR READER test. If you were going to present on Friday, you will now present on our next day back.
Week 2: Jan. 16-19
M Students who have not given their presentation yet may work on it, and even print copies for everyone (in the library). Other students may quietly work on other homework.
Don’t forget to pick out your National Book Award book. If no one else wants your book, you can start looking for it in libraries or purchase it on-line. (Amazon often has cheap used books.)

T Listen to the Ancient Mariner (Senior Book and below)
W E-Learning Day Go to the Senior Book Website and now reread The Ancient Mariner with the benefit of the backround mateial and footnotes. You will know you have opened the correct one because it will look like a textbook. You will see Coleridge's life and some poems; after that the Ancient Mariner begins. Now write a paragraph about your understanding of the plot of the Ancient Mariner and a paragraph about what you think it means. A reminder that a paragraph has a topic sentence with supporting details. I am requiring a half a page for each paragraph. You may write more. On the back of the page jot down some of your favorite lines. Take a picture of this assignment and load to e-backpack before midnight.
