Nov 24 – 27 ELA A10 and Psych 20 missed
There are two of you who were away to Agribition in Regina all this week. Here’s what you missed and what you should have completed for this coming Tuesday when we’re back to school:
- We finished reading the novel. It was a tense ending and not everyone was satisfied with it.
- Reflect on what you thought of this novel, including the following prompts. When you’ve reflected, use your Fotobabble app to record your audio response now that you’ve finished it.
- What was your impression / response to this novel. If you did / didn’t like it, explain why.
- What about the novel (reading) will stand out to you? Any particular messages or elements of the writing?
- Adding comments to share your Active Thinking while reading didn’t really pan out with our class, but when I handed out the little slips of paper with an Active Reading Prompt on it everyone did great. How did these prompts affect the way you read the book?
- You’ve had experience with Venn Diagrams – they’re used to show how two things have similarities and differences. Make up a Venn Diagram and identify what of this novel and the movie we watched The Village are similar and different.
- Students were given a class to continue working on their plan for their visual representation of their podcast experiment. This is to be done in two parts: record the audio explanation of your experiment and then video tape your visual representation of it using tactile movement of objects.
- The other classes for this week were used by students planning for carrying out one of three experiments we learned about recently. They were sorted into groups, got to pick between the experiment options, and had to make a plan for how to carry out the experiment, including a list of steps, the differences between experimental groups, thwarting possible confounds etc. They got to do the experiments on Thursday in one of our three ELA / Psych classes that day. They then used Friday’s class to review the data they collected, make conclusions on their control vs experimental group(s) and then record a brief explanation of their experiment’s purpose for the staff who are still curious about what it all really meant.
- For you, it worked out to be a good time to be away, since there’ll be no homework for you on this.
Hope you enjoyed a great week!
