After that, students worked on a Peardeck activity where they answered questions about some of the concepts we will be facing in our upcoming reading. We will be reading “Young Goodman Brown” followed by The Crucible.
Students began with reviewing colon rules with some Khan Academy videos, then practiced with some sentences.
They spent the remainder of the period reading their novels.
We began with thesis statement practice and finished with another vocabulary review Kahoot game.
We started with an activator focusing on thesis statements, then discussed the exam format. We wrapped up with some Kahoot games on the use of the colon to introduce that unit.
We focused on reviewing MLA format for our exam. We played some Quizizz games that were very helpful. We also reviewed the exam format (posted on Google Classroom).
Students began by ranking the stories we did this trimester and justifying their choices.
Following that, students broke into groups to create Kahoot games for each story.
Students began an Actively Learn activity focused on the story “Federigo’s Falcon”.
