Day Seven--Thursday, January 15th, 2014

When You Come In

  1. Please initial next to your name on the clipboard.

  2. Put your phone in the phone hostage station (back circle table by the windows).

Writing Lesson Review
  1. What are clichés?
  2. Why are clichés bad for your writing?

2:05-2:35--Cliché Pair Story Final Work Time and Requirements/Grading (Thirty Minutes)
1.     Review the grading criteria on your story.

1.      We used as many clichés as possible to create a fictional story.
2.     We boldfaced the clichés so they stand out from the story.
3.     We used least four sentences of dialogue in quotation marks.
4.     Type between one and one and a half pages.
5.     We doublespaced our story.
6.     We used paragraphs to indicate shifting ideas.
7.      We used classroom appropriate language.
8.      We avoided bodily functions as our main topic.

2.    Go through each one, and make sure you can answer “YES” to each one!  
3.    Finish writing and revising your story as needed, before I grade it tomorrow.

Reminder:  The only acceptable places to be on your computer today are as follows:
  1. google drive
  3. music today, since you’re working with a partner--conversation and collaboration are the goals!

2:35-2:55--Vocabulary Work--Poetry Terms on Quizlet
  • Why are we doing this?…so we all have a common vocabulary to talk about poetry.  You will use this information to help you revise and conference all term.
  • Also, some of these terms will undoubtedly appear on the ACT, and we want you to do your best on that, so you have lots of options for your future.
  • Be on quizlet only--that’s the only place you can be online.  Please and thank you!

  1. Study the poetry vocab.  

  1. When I call time, I will show you how to “TEST” yourself (no true/false; no multiple choice--written and matching only).
