Eight more weeks. That is all we have left to the 2019-2020 school year. And what a year it has been - cyber security attack against the school district, presidential impeachment, threats of World War III, now a global pandemic. This will definitely be a year we won't forget. As we move on to these last 8 weeks of school, I wanted to let you all know that I miss seeing your faces, hearing your one liners (even though they drove me crazy because they interrupted the flow), as well as your questions, jokes and yes, even your fits. You are all in my thoughts and prayers daily as we navigate through the waves and the unknowns of the Corona Virus.

My goal for the reminder of the school year is to provide some lessons and activities to challenge and stretch your mind, keep it active. Below is the tentative plan for the remaining weeks as of Sunday, April 5th:

Week of April 6th:  

Lesson:  Critical Thinking in the Age of Covid-19

Monday: Critical Thinking Skills explanation and activities - Go to Nearpod.com and enter code JAXKE to join the lesson. If you don’t finish it in one setting, make a note of where you ended because it won’t show you your previous work, but I’ll have access to it, so just go ahead and pick up where you left off.

Tuesday: Fact VS. Opinion - Check Google Classroom daily for additional notes, assignment clarifications and Nearpod codes.

Wednesday: Rhetoric and Fake News - Check Google Classroom daily for additional notes, assignment clarifications and Nearpod codes.

Thursday and Friday: Application - Check Google Classroom daily for additional notes, assignment clarifications and Nearpod codes.

Extension & Enrichment: Continue Independent work:

  • Quarantine Time Capsule: instructions given on Google Classroom last week
  • Read Theory: (ReadTheory.org) - 30 minutes weekly
  • Parts of Speech: review nouns, verbs, and adjectives (notes should be in binder, or see Google Classroom)
  • Punctuation: review end marks and uses of periods (notes should be in binder, or see Google Classroom)

Week of April 13th: Grammar - commas, colons, and semi-colons. It will include identifying when to use each one as well as how to fix comma slices.

Week of April 20th:  Research the background of author, Elie Wiesel, and his book, Night. This will include guided research of the Holocaust as well.

Week of April 27th: Begin reading Night. I have found several online versions or you could purchase it fairly cheap on Amazon. I have seen some for as low as $4.95

Week of May 4th: Continue reading and analyzing Night.

Week of May 11th: Finish reading and analyzing Night. Assign end of unit project. (to be determined). All LATE work due, Friday, May 15th.

Week of May 18th: Overview, review and assessment of all parts of speech, punctuation and capitalization.

Week of May: Last week of school. To be determined.
