Big Updates for the Week

Hello beautiful young people!

A glorious Tuesday to you!  I'm so excited to embark on our theatre and drama unit this year, and I know that many of you students are going to really love it!

I wanted to provide you with online links to the group-taught lesson assignment that you recently learned about in class.  A list of the group assignments is available here, and the assignment sheet is available here.  Remember to read the assignment sheet very carefully to be sure that you're including all of the requirements in your lesson.  Also in the assignment document is a lesson planning template that you and your group members can use to break down your 20 minutes into smaller sections to manage your time.

You'll have a sizable chunk of time to work on your lessons during class--Days 3, 4, 5, and 6 of this week--but you should also utilize opportunities to connect outside of class to make your lesson extra creative and interesting!. You'll have one more preparation day on Monday or next week and then we'll start actually doing the presentations/lessons on Tuesday.  Here are some topic-specific research links that I recommend.

Can't wait to see the finished products!

Your argumentative essays should be submitted in final draft form via Google docs by tomorrow (Wednesday) night.  You do NOT need to print a hard copy for me at this time.  PLEASE check for MUG issues before submitting.  It's not worth losing points because you didn't proofread.  If you want me to look over your paper BEFORE the official due date, please let me know by the end of the day TODAY and I'll happily do so.

The third SRC of the marking period is due on FRIDAY, May 15th.  Early submissions will receive extra credit points, and late submissions will lose ten points per day of lateness.

That's all for now, folks!

Much love and wishes for a splendiferous Tuesday!
Miss Whitman
