Period 2, This One's for You!
We started the day off with an extremely enthusiastic hello from Smith (which, by the way, only took period 2 ONE try to respond to correctly). Since today was a short day (due to ACTs for juniors) we got right down to business. We first went over our question for the 1984 take home essay test due tomorrow. The question is:
1984 is a warning that Orwell wrote in the 1940s. What was he warning us about? (2 specifics with explanations)
How has it come true in our society today? (2 specifics with explanations)
This must be typed, double spaced, and in formal essay format.
You must answer both questions!
Smith also said it doesn't matter how many paragraphs your essay is. You can pick your own format for your essay. However, she did say she was looking for that you actually answered the questions, and that you typed it in proper format.
After we wrote down the question, we took a survey set up by Smith. To access this survey, go to Smith's webpage from the school website. There will be a link that says survey. Once you click on the link you must enter in a class code (period 2's is 220). If you were not able to finish in class, you were to submit what you had already completed and do the rest at home. Smith asked us to please do our best and answer in complete sentences because this is feedback to her that she would like to take seriously.
So, our homework:
- 1984 take home test due tomorrow (MUST BE PRINTED OUT PRIOR TO CLASS!)
- Complete all exercises, worksheets, and reviews in the grammar packet
- Prepare for the grammar test tomorrow as needed
- Finish the survey if you have not already done so
Alright guys. That's my scribe for tonight. Have an amazing Wednesday night and I will see you all, bright and early, tomorrow morning! And remember, period 2 will always be better!
