Thursday November 7 is a "B" or "White" Day.

Block 1 - Grade 8 French - 7:45-9:27

Please take attendance using the seating chart provided.

We all need to hear the announcements so -- No talking during announcements. I have made kind of a big deal about this, so please at least remind them. They know it is my pet peeve. Please leave me names of any students who are talking during announcements.

You can have students get computers as soon as they come into the room.

Let them know that they will have until 8:15 to study/review in preparation for their quiz OR to put their Escargot paragraph into a Google Doc and share it with me at helliott@ccs.k12.in.us Activities other than reviewing or studying French are not allowed.

If they choose to study rather than do the paragraph, the paragraph in a google doc is due on Monday.

The 2B Culture questions are also DUE today at the start of class. Please remind students of this and they should turn this in to the tray with the green sign on it in the front left corner of the room. (This is where ALL student work, notes to me, etc. is to be turned in for ALL classes)

At 8:15, instruct students to close out all tabs except for the one they will use for the quiz. They can get to the quiz by logging in to their account at www.quia.com or they can click the link to quia from their class CANVAS page.

I will leave you a list of student usernames and passwords in case someone forgets.

Instruct students to put ALL of their phones, books and other materials on the floor up against the front wall of the room. The only thing they are allowed to have on their desks during the quiz is the computer, a blank sheet of paper and a writing utensil. They are familiar with this procedure.

When all students have clicked on the quiz (last thing on the quia class web page) and logged in, there will be a "Secret Word" page. Don't give out the secret word until you have checked that all students are ready. You can then write the secret word novembre on the board, and that begins the quiz - no talking, etc. Please walk around during the quiz to make sure students are not opening up any other web pages or tabs other than their quiz. If they run into some problem that they are upset about, they can send me a message in canvas after the quiz.

When students finish the quiz, please give them the "Escargot activity 2" paper. They are to add a table to their Escargot activity 1 google doc and complete activity 2 in the google doc.

When they finish this, or at the end of class, please hand out the Unit 2 Review packet and instruct students to begin working on it. It will be due on Wednesday November 14.

Block 2- Grade 7 Newspaper 9:32-11:06

1. Please take attendance using the seating chart that I have provided.

2. See if anyone can name the 5 freedoms guaranteed in the first amendment: Assembly, speech, religion, press and petition the government to address a grievance. If somebody can do it right off, give them a piece of candy. Then Show the 5 first amendment rights song video. Link below.

2. Show the video (link below) Crash course: Freedom of Speech. Students need to understand that free speech means American citizens are free from being imprisoned or persecuted by the government because of their speech, including criticism of the government. Students should also understand that free speech does not mean that there are no limitations on speech that could be dangerous, or that there are no consequences from other citizens (including your employer, if it's not the government) who don't like what you say.

3. Distribute the 2 papers for the sorting activity and have students share the scissors and tape and glue that are on the floor at the front of the room under the clock. There is an answer key if there are any questions. They should keep their completed sort paper in their binder. I may check or collect it later.

4. Distribute the worksheet that goes with Crash Course episode 26 and have students complete this while watching the video. You may need to slow down the speed of the video, pause it, or play it several times to help students answer the questions. It goes pretty fast. Let students tell you which ones are giving them issues and see if you can assist. COLLECT THESE.

5. Distribute the readings about Zenger and have students complete the accompanying activities. There is a differentiated reading for Taylor and Peter - it is just slightly easier. Both Taylor and Peter can adapt this activity by highlighting words they know in the reading in one color and words they don't know in a different color, or circle ones they don't know, underline ones they do. Peter can use a computer to look up the meaning of English words in Arabic and take notes over that. If he has trouble understanding what you are telling him, type it into google translate and let him read the Arabic.

Students should complete the Zenger reading activities as homework due Monday.

If there is any time left you can watch the CNN 10 student news for today and yesterday. Do not require students to take notes if they watch quietly and attentively.

LUNCH - 11:11- 11:39
Period 5 - Grade 6 Exploratory French culture- 11:44-12:28
Distribute Packet that says "France in Pictures" on the front page. Instruct students to complete the readings and questions that go with Activity 2, 9, and 17. If they finish those three, they can select any of the other activities to do. Eventually, they will be required to complete 2/3 of the entire packet.

Period 6 - Grade 6 AVID - 12:33-1:18
1. Students are to have their Clay Connections open on their desks, their homework (Industrial Revolution notes and left-side column questions) out (because the h.s. students will be looking at it when they get there) and immediately begin doing Cornell Notes steps 1 and 2 (completing header and taking notes) over the article "The Life of a U.S. Industrial Worker." They do not have to fill in the "Essential Question" yet. I have left extra copies of this article as well as extra sheets of Cornell notepaper.

2. Check students' Clay Connections for completion. There is a frog stamp to use to show that they filled out their agenda from yesterday afternoon and so far today. Homework should be noted and checked off if completed and academic classes should have a keyword telling the topic that was studied that day.

3. High School Avid students will be coming to work with the students today. The first thing they are planning to do is collect the students notes and left-column questions over the Industrial Revolution video and look them over while students are doing the notes over the Industrial worker article. At about 1:00, the high school students will return the notes to the students and give them feedback in small groups. If time allows, the high school students will also give the students feedback on their agendas. Ms. Wegner, our school AVID coordinator, will be with them and will probably lead the activities.

Block 7-8 1:18-3:05 This is my usual prep time. Please see the office for your instructions.
