Today we began everyday like the next, greeting Ms. Smith with great enthusiasm! We were all quite excited to see each other after a really short spring break. None of us wanted to work today but did get a lot accomplished during the period.
Scribing:First Ms. Smith explained how the scribing works. How each day someone posts a blog recapping what we did during class. This is so when you miss, you know exactly what happened during class. One at a time we went up and gave Ms. Smith our e-mail addresses and she sent out an e-mail. Inside the e-mail is a link that invited us to her blog so we are able to make these posts possible. Once you open your e-mail click on the link and you need to sign in with your Google account. [If you do not have a Google account there is a link you can click on, on the sign on page so you can make one.] When signed our names on a calendar stating which day we will be scribing. See Ms. Smith to sign up. On your day, you scribing must be posted by 9 o'clock the same day as you are scribing. If you have further questions you can contact Ms. Smith or me during class and we will be happy to help.
Fishbowl:While we weren't figuring out how to scribe, we were learning about the 1984 fish bowls. Ms. Smith passed out a pink sheet [if you were gone see here to get one] that explained how we are doing fishbowl for 1984. This time each group [again if you were absent you were put in groups. Ask Ms. Smith to see what group your in] will be responsible to make an outline of what was to be discussed and make a quiz for the others to take. For more detail, please see the pink sheet. We signed up on sheets what days we wanted to present. The days of our fishbowls are on the calender available on Ms. Smith's web page. The days we were presenting on, we highlighted our names on the sheet in blue highlighter. On the days we wanted to discuss, we highlighted our names in green highlighter.
Blogger: After all of this was accomplished. We went on to the English 9 Honor's blog. There were two posts that we did. One was about parent expectations for blogger. We were supposed to respond with what we felt our parent's expectations should be. Our parents are also encouraged to post on this blog. The next one had two videos we watched and then responded on how we felt. It is important that you watch the videos in order they appear [youtube video is last].
- Read 1984 pages 1-37 for Wednesday [if you are presenting on Wednesday you need to be prepared]
- Respond on both blogs if you have not already done so
- Semester Project
- Invite your parents to join blogger
Thanks for reading my scribe and if you were absent, I hope this has helped you out.
bye, adiós, au revoir, Tschüs, ciao, Tot ziens, tchau, пока, 再见。, 付け足し〔不戦勝者〕!!!!
See you all tomorrow!
