English – Week of October 3rd

Sorry for the late post – I have been trying to get all late/missing/absent/ReDos graded and in the online gradebook. As of 9p on Monday, October 3rd, all late/missing/absent/ReDos are updated in the gradebook EXCEPT for test corrections. Test corrections will be updated tomorrow. Also, I can’t seem to email progress reports from home, so they will be emailed tomorrow as well.

This is a new grading cycle, which means a fresh start. Students will receive a new cycle overview and grade sheet Wednesday/Thursday in class: cycle-two-grade-sheet     cycle-two-overview . This cycle is VERY short, so students need to keep up with assignments and turn them in ON TIME!

Monday/Tuesday – Students will learn about types of expository writing and begin to think about book club topics. HW: Read your IRB (IRR #1 is 10/10 or 10/13) AND send me an email from your Gmail account to jjerniga@pinoak.us by the end of the day, Thursday, 10/06. This is NOT a monitored account. It is used for Google Drive purposes only.

Wednesday/Thursday – Students will continue exploring expository texts, visit the library, and begin diagramming compound sentences. HW: Read your IRB (IRR #1 is 10/10 or 10/13) AND send me an email from your Gmail account to jjerniga@pinoak.us by the end of the day, Thursday, 10/06.
