Persuasive Techniques (for our final Embedded Assessment!)
Completed poetry books with six original poems are due at the end of class on Wednesday. Remember that Tuesday is the Main Event field trip, so you won’t have that class time to work on your project. Work on it at home as needed.
The absolute last day that late or missing assignments will be accepted is Wednesday, May 9. Class will still continue after that point, but no past-due assignments will be accepted.
Floyd’s first ever Poetry Night will take place on Wednesday, May 2 at 6:30pm in our Media Center. We will also host a STEAM exhibition the same evening, so come for both events! Students are invited to share their own original poems or recite the work of a favorite poet. See your Language Arts teacher (me!) or Dr. Jones for more information. Students will earn extra credit for attending and even more for presenting! Bring your friends!
Do you need a little inspiration? Visit this list of poetry for teens or peruse the collection of poetry books I have in the classroom.
May 22nd – Mandatory Practice
May 23rd – Rite of Passage Ceremony @10 am
Reminder: The Milestones review packet that was passed out today is homework and is due on Tuesday, March 27 at the beginning of class. Use the last sheet to write down any questions you have as you work on it.
If you did not present a panel discussion for Unit 3 Embedded Assessment #1, you may complete the alternative assignment which is attached to this post. See Ms. Kinder with any questions. If you did not present in class, you have already received a copy of this assignment.
If you’re curious about verb tenses, see this Grammarly post. There is a link for each individual tense if you scroll down below the chart.
All classes: Your homework over the weekend is to read your assigned text a second time. When you come in on Monday, be prepared to discuss the text with your group, focusing on how the theme of “finding light in the darkness” is developed throughout the text. You will plan your panel discussion on Monday and Tuesday, with presentations beginning on Wednesday. Happy reading!
