Today we started by going to the library and renewing our SSR books. If you missed today it is your responsibility to find time to get to the library and renew your book.

After that I handed back your journals and we went over some common problems I noted as I graded them on Sunday:

  • Entries were not dated- this makes it difficult for me to know which journal prompt that you’re responding to.
  • Several journals had no name. No name= missing/no credit in the grade book. Make sure your name is clearly written on the front page, front cover, or inside cover of your notebook.
  • There were many incomplete entries (not answering the why part of the question,) there were also some incomplete sentences as well.
  • Journal entries not being in order is very confusing for me. Next time I will not hunt around for your journal entries and you will lose points if they are not all in the same place.
  • Some people lost points for having no notes or incomplete notes. Remember that if something is underlined in the PowerPoint presentation you should write it down.

After going over those common errors we got into small groups and came up with topics that you may want to write around for your persuasion papers. I’ll upload the topics on here after school today.
