Wed Sub Notes – Mrs. Herrem
Here are some links/supports shared with students through Teams for their classes.
Period 1: ELA B10
- A Socrative Comprehension Check from yesterday’s play reading/viewing. Room 252858. A check in of your understanding.
- Watch a 15 minute Instructional Video introducing you to the Obituary writing assignment. You could have someone log-in to the teacher computer and watch it as a group on the Smartboard. The assignment pages are in the back of your Macbeth section.
- Then, I’d like you to read 2 obituary samples:
- One is a comical one of a guy who lived an “interesting” life. If you read this together as a class, it could be comical.
- The second is a more serious, and more similar to the tone/difficulty of the obituary you’ll write – written about someone who died of drug use. Hard to write a celebration of someone’s life when they struggled so much, or like in Macbeth’s case when they hurt so many other people.
- After the instruction and two sample obituaries read, you can begin DRAFTING your ideas in the handout guide. Remember, an obituary is written by a loved one. A family member. You’ll want others to remember the better parts of that person’s life, maybe understand the unique struggles they faced, and their outlook on life.
- You’ll have more writing time coming, but this gives you an idea of what the last assignment involves and some time to start generating ideas. Spoiler – Macbeth is going to die soon!
- Reminder: Some of you need to complete another AR or 2 (or 3). I’ve given you 2 options in the post just before this. There are copies you can grab on the back Bulletin board or ask me for a copy printed for you. These are all due this Friday!
They’ve got their new/last section of the course to work on. It includes 2 listening activities.
All work is due (except the current section) by this Friday.
Play the game as many as 2 times and then, either as a group of 3-4 OR divided into groups of 2, write out that narrative storyline plot, including characters, dialogue, point of view, conflict, tone, etc. See what they can complete with the rest of the class period.
