Today we completed session 9 in the vocabulary books and then proceeded to finish the rest of the fairy tale presentations. We discussed the book as a class and then reviewed some of the information for the test on Wednesday. Students also worked on reading 5 of Anne Sexton's fairy tales and comparing them to the Brothers Grimm versions. Students should write down how the tales are changed and analyze them. Also, students should look up critical analysis of these tales online.
Today begins our news week. Students should bring headphones and an iPad cable with them this week. Monday and Tuesday are devoted to writing and creating stories. Wednesday will be devoted to editing in the computer lab and Thursday will be devoted to putting the final stories together.
Started with a survivor challenge. We then took a quiz on Chapter 1 of LOTF and discussed the book afterwards. We also reviewed the information from the Freud and Leadership style worksheet. See the iCal for reading assignments.
