This week students will review coordinating adjectives and will review pronouns and antecedents. (Several useful videos are below for students to review before Tuesday/Wednesday.) Students will also re-sort their unit 1 vocabulary words to prepare for the summative final on Friday. Students will read and make metacognitive notes on a myth, “Phaethon” from the textbook. As the week progresses, they will answer comprehension questions from the myth and complete a chart after analyzing the character traits of the two main characters of the myth. Students who complete the Study Guide given to them on this past Thursday and Friday, will have a chance to review more difficult concepts from the study guide in preparation for Friday’s summative. On Friday, students will take the summative and will read a 2nd myth: “Arachne.” Students will have homework on Monday/Tuesday on coordinating adjectives and pronouns/antecedents. They also have a study guide to complete to prepare for Friday’s assessment. On Wednesday/Thursday—students should be studying their completed study guide and on Wednesday, they will have more practice on pronouns to prepare for a formative.
