Looking for the Quote Identification Test study guide? It's not up!
Due to the fact that I've already collected dialectical journals assessing the same skill, and because many of you are choosing to take advantage of the grade replacement opportunity of the Act 4/5 journals, I've decided to cancel the Hamlet Quote Identification Test next week in order to give you more time to work on your final projects.
Enjoy your weekend, and get those Act 2/3 dialectical journals done!
Absent for a viewing day of Hamlet? Here's what to do:
1.) Follow the link under calendar to the PBS website where you can watch the Gregory Doran adaptation. If you need help finding the scenes, there are timestamps in the "Hamlet Viewing Notes," also linked in the calendar.
2.) Arrange a time with me to watch the Branagh versions of those scenes before school, after school, or during lunch.
3.) Ask about an extension for your dialectical journals if necessary.
Summer Reading Essays have been assigned grades! They will be returned at the end of week 5 for students to review and reflect on the comments and feedback. Then, in week 6, we will have a week-long writing camp designed to workshop these essays. Students' current grades will roll over to formative, and the new, revised essays' grades will be summative.
Please note: essays are currently summative (and will remain summative during progress reports) because they are the best estimation at this time of students' current academic progress in argument writing and grammar. This will change after they receive further instruction on writing.
