While I was out for some training, students worked on a reflection piece that asks students to reflect on what they learned during the Titanic unit. Students also answered in short answer form how they felt they did on their scrapbook. Students handed in their reflections and their scrapbooks. No Homework today except HRL.
Today students worked on either their word roots from yesterday, their book report which is due February 1, or on the Titanic Scrap Book which is due early next week. Students had the opportunity to get as much done in class as possible to avoid excess homework going into the weekend.
students are to create a book with one page dedicated to each word. Each page must include the word root. Its meaning. Five examples of the word root being used in a word correctly. It should be clear and easy to read. Students will take a test on these word roots next Friday. The Book is due next Friday as well.
Students were given a chance to use their crafted arguments as to who is most to blame for the sinking of the RMS Titanic. Students were split into small groups and assigned a person of blame, and asked to present out loud the reasons they feel that person should stand trial or be held responsible. Students showed respect and didn't interrupt when presenting evidence. They took notes and rated the person being blamed. At the end of the presentations, the class by raise of hands voted for the person most to blame.
Students worked on the packet both Wednesday and Thursday that allows students to articulate their arguments for why different people would be to blame for the Titanic sinking. These packets are due Tuesday of next week
Students also got a packet dealing with how to properly cite using MLA format and how not to plagerize. This is also due Tuesday
Today students read through and watched a video segment on Captain Smith They used this information to create their own narrative of how Captain Smith may have completed his final Captain's Log.
