Perkins: We corrected the pronoun homework from last night and then spent the rest of the period doing our first day of research for our ancient Egyptian papers. Students made an ancient Egyptian folder in their Google Drive and are able to store any online work they do in that folder so they can find previous work and have a place to store it where they can't lose it. Students have written 3 research questions and put them into a digital outline, graphic organizer, or a paper copy. Students with paper copies need to find a dedicated space in their binder for their papers to keep them from being lost.
Homework: page 4 of the pronoun packet (both sides).

Students have several options but need to be diligent in recording where they are getting their information, because we will not only be doing a Works Cited page, but students will also be responsible for in-text citations throughout the body of their research paper.
Homework: Read 20 minutes or more.
Costello: Same as above except my period 6 class had an introduction to EASYBIB (a works cited program) today in the library.
