2015-16 Week 16 – Nov 30

We’re on the final stretch to the end of the semester! It’s just this week and next week and then exams. Let’s finish STRONG–that means you’re going to study and do well on the Huck Finn tests and you’re going to do a great job on your Multigenre Projects, right? 🙂 I have faith in you–don’t let me down! 🙂

Let’s take a look at this week so that you can be prepared:

  • Monday, Nov 30
    • Reading Quiz–last half of novel
    • Work on Huck Finn MG project pieces
    • Work on Study Guides
    • Homework:  Huck Finn Quote activity
  • Tuesday, Dec 1
    • Work on Huck Finn MG project pieces
    • Work on Study Guides
  • Wednesday, Dec 2
    • Archbishop’s Visit–see schedule below *
    • Huck Finn Final Test
    • Vocab Project due in class (Google Classroom)
    • Study Guide Project due in class (Google Classroom)
  • Thursday, Dec 3
    • Advent Penance Service *probably altered schedule
    • A period–finish Huck Finn tests, if necessary
    • Finish up HF MG project pieces, final touches
  • Friday, Dec 4
    • Article of the Week response due (Google Classroom)
    • Huck Finn Multigenre Projects due
    • Begin discussing Romanticism and Transcendentalism
    • Homework: Read “Devil and Tom Walker”

Note that the Archbishop will be visiting on Wed, Dec 2 when you’re having your final Huck Finn test. Most of the classes will be normal length that day, so we’ll go ahead with the test. I’ll run it the way that I did last time–you get page 1 and as much time as you need with that, and when you turn it in, you can have page 2 (and so on–I haven’t written the test yet, so I don’t know how many pages it will be). I’m not sure what the schedule will be for the Penance Service the next day, but I’ll adjust as we need to. Honors, your class will be shorter, so just plan to take the second half of the Huck Finn test on Thursday.

*We’re running a different schedule for Wed, Dec 2. Here’s a look at that:

  • 7:30-8:17 1st Period (47 min.)
  • 8:21-9:08 2nd Period (47 min.)
  • 9:12-9:59 “C” Period (47 min.)
