Thursday Feb 23

 

These students did the alternative assignment outlined below

 

Wednesday Feb 22

 

Tuesday, these students were at IDEX

 

I gave grades out to the students showing the majority failed the writing portion.

I tried to show the students how they could improve that by using what they have learned about relative pronouns to include at least one complex sentence in their compositions.

 

Gave out this worksheet

IDEX recollections.docx

 

I showed them public websites and newspaper reports of the show they had visited.

Some students said that what they had seen was secret and they an alternative assignment.

 

So I produced an altered version for later classes (not all my students had visited IDEX)

So for later classes I collected these documents

  • HCT Writing Band Descriptors 2 to 5
  • Exercises students had been given in for Unit 3 to practice relative pronouns
  • An altered assignment,  learning recollections.docx including sample paragraphs, one produced by a student

 

And I produced a video to explain in 10 min what I was trying to do

relativepronouns_iPad_part2.mp4
