7th period language arts – Today students worked on background information for Shakespeare.  They are answering questions on four aspects of Shakespeare’s life:  Life and Family, The Globe Theater, The Elizabethan Period, and Special Effects used in performances at the Globe.  This information will be on Friday’s learning check.  Students may use their completed note sheet for Friday’s assessment, but they will not be able to use the articles.

Tomorrow we will have a quiz on Shakespeare vocabulary part 1.  Students should study their note cards and study guide sheet.  I have also attached a Quizizz game for review.

On Wednesday, students will receive the second vocabulary list for Sheakespeare’s “Taming of the Shrew.”  The quiz on these words will be Tuesday, May 1.

7th period LA – Today we began our study of pronouns.  Yesterday students analyzed their pronoun pretest to identify the three type of pronouns they missed most often.  They completed an analysis chart for their errors.

This week’s homework will be based on each student’s individual error analysis.  Since most students missed multiple questions on the pronoun/antecedent section, they will do page 61 in the pronoun packet tonight.  We reviewed antecedents today in class.  I am also attaching the Power Point guide and practice pages.  Tonight’s homework is p. 61 in the practice packet.
