Period 3 Reading /  Sentence completion

 

This class requires that students spend time preparing for their exams and that teachers document this time spent

We are spending this week preparing for LISTENING, WRITING, and READING tests next Monday.

 

As with flight or any kind of training, time must be spent efficiently

 

Your assignments will normally appear here for any given day.

Today you must follow these instructions

 

1. Bring this page up on your iPad as quickly as possible.

 

2. Raise your hand when you have it. Your teacher will note the time elapsed in the class next to your name.

(This is necessary because many students in this class are not making the effort to find class information each day,

and I need to know who is willing and capable of bookmarking this page in his browser for quick and easy access next time)

 

3. When you have reached this page your teacher will give you a reading practice for the sentence completion kind of exercise that will be on your Progress Test next Monday.

Why? Because it is important that each student has time in class to understand and practice the kinds of questions that will be asked.

Students who do not do well on tests sometimes complain that they were not given similar work in class.

If you do well on the test, this will not be an issue <-- one of your new vocabulary words)

Underline the part of the reading where the answer is

 

4. When finished, put your name on your paper and turn it in to the teacher

Again, I'll note the time. Thank you

 

5. Download this app and show it to your teacher installed on your iPad

 

 

Period 7 Reading practice review and guided formal letter writing

Your teacher returned your sentence completion reading exercise and went over the frequently missed questions
