We began the day with grade reports (all late/incomplete work is due Monday) and then students had the period to work on their essays. Students with complete drafts worked through a guided peer response activity. Most others spent the period typing.
Today we spent the day working on the essay. Most students finished the introduction boxes on the handout and started the body paragraphs. The goal should be to have the whole handout complete for class tomorrow. Students also handed in Act Recap #5 which they will get back tomorrow.
Today we finished the play and students had 25 minutes or so to work on their Act 5 Recap. Near the period's end, we talked about the final paper and students were given the essay assignment and planning handouts. They should have the Act 5 Recap and page 1 of the essay handouts complete at the beginning of class tomorrow.
