Language Arts 2016-17

  • Ms. Amelia Shwartz               ashwartz@stamfordct.gov
  • Thursday, Feb.23
    Good afternoon,

    Today, we completed our "spider" graphic organizer. This sorts out our claim, our reasons to support the claim, and 2 pieces of evidence from 2 sources to support each reason.

    Remember: evidence must be cited. That means page numbers! Direct quotes will be expected for your drafts.

    You need a green smiley face at the top to begin your draft next time we write. If you do not have one, you will need to finish your "spider" before you can write paragraphs.

    You are welcome to research more (sources are below), but that is on your own. Class time for Writing will be spent on our essays.

    Sources are provided in class - d'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths and MythWeb. 

    * Read for 30 min.

    Good afternoon,

    Today, we answered a Reader's Response, just to brush up on the events of chapters 16-17. You are reading chapters 19-21 on your own. :)

    The response was:
    * Why did someone write "fishbelly" on the Beales' house? Why did some people want Maniac to leave the East End?

    Chapters and worksheets (if needed) are posted on the Weebly after we read: http://shwartzla.weebly.com/

    * Read for 30 min.
    * Read MM chapter 19-21

  • Wed. 2/22
    Today we:
      1. Learned what reclaim and precipitate mean (chemically).
      2. Reclaimed the copper in the etching solution with 3 different metals.
      3. Recorded evidence that would indicate which metal works best to "reclaim" the copper (reaction speed, amount of precipitate, remaining copper).

    H/W: None!
    Its great to be back, however I miss skiing in Copper with my family:

  • Wed. 2/15
    Today we:
      1. Learned that we cannot incinerate the copper waste to get rid of it (remains in the ash).
      2. Learned how much garbage we produce and what a landfill is.
      3. Heard Mr. Gleason exhort us to EACH reduce our Carbon Footprint (short showers, lower heat, smaller cars, etc.)
      4. STORY: Mr. Gleason's best ride ever, Windsurfing to Mustique with the flying fish.
    H/W: Enjoy your break!
