Today we started with the final SSR of the week. I checked to make sure people were far enough in their books before green lighting or scrapping the book presentation project.

Next in 4th hour we took a quiz over “The Lottery,” which we read in small groups yesterday.

In other classes we read this article about multi-tasking and I asked you to think of 5 reasons from the article why having your phone out during school is a bad idea. (There will be a similar question from this article on the final, so if you were absent today you’ll need to make sure to read it and take notes.)

Today we took a quiz over persuasion. With any remaining time we looked at some comics that have a persuasive message to them.

Reminder: Tomorrow I will be collecting journals. In the journals I’m looking for:

  • 2 pre-lesson questions
  • 2 sets of notes
  • Your ad analysis exercise, which you can find at the end of the persuasion notes PowerPoint.

Today I handed out a review for the persuasion quiz which you will be taking tomorrow. If you need any of the notes on persuasion you can find links to my PowerPoints here (persuasion) and here (logical fallacies).

Logical fallacies flashcards/study games.

Reminder: I will be collecting journals on Friday (or Thursday if you’ll be leaving early for spring break,) and I expect to see:

  • 2 sets of notes (Persuasion and logical fallacies)
  • 2 pre-lesson questions
  • Your ad analysis exercise. (You can find instructions at the end of the persuasion notes.)

I hope you all enjoyed your snow day yesterday. Today we started with our first unit: journalism history. I started with a quiz that tested what you may already know. That ‘quiz’ will also act as your study guide for the history portion of our first test.

After that quiz we went over the linked to Prezi about journalism history.

Today we took our final quiz over act five of Julius Caesar. Tomorrow we will turn our focus to the final project for the term, your book talk/book report. Make sure you’re finishing those SSR books. All act four and five Caesar quizzes need to be made up by Friday. All act one through three quizzes must be made up by tomorrow.

Tomorrow I will post an example book talk visual, an example book report, and the rubrics I will be using to grade those two assignments.
