3.  Complete the assignment.
Work time = twenty minutes.  

How We’re Going to Use Them:
  • We will talk about these breaks TOMORROW.

  2. Grab an Earthbook off the front table, and complete page 39.

Self-Assessment for Death of Language
  1. Open your doc in google.
  2. At the top of your doc, type the following:  “I have completed _____/20 required words and reasons.”  Type the number of completes in this blank, obviously.
  3. Type me several sentences that argue what grade you deserve overall for this assignment:  
    1. 4 = detailed, thoughtful, thorough; used examples to clarify my thinking
    2. 3 = some detail and throught; lacked an example, or lacked a sentence to pull it all together
    3. 2 = I gave a basic reason for each of my words, but my responses lack detail and examples
    4. 1 = I gave a skimpy reason for each word--no detail.
  4. Take a look at the revision history.  Did you work on this after the deadline--1:55 Tuesday, February 3rd--or did you complete all work prior to that time?  Answer in a sentence.
  5. Highlight your BEST answer in yellow.  
  6. Highlight your WEAKEST answer in green.
