RsOn Monday we will briefly use the lab to answer eight additional Milestones questions using the iRespond app. Careful attention to this will allow me to further plan review activities this week to prepare you for the American literature EOC. As your grade on this assessment constitutes 20% of your final grade in this class, I am sure you will give me your best focus.
This activity will take the place of our normal AP exam preparation, and will count as part of our scheduled common assessment. Later this week we will complete two extended responses from the Milestones study guide that will complete this grade.
After further consideration and in order to keep us on schedule this week, I have decided to extend the House for Sale PBL deadline to Tuesday. We will be spending the rest of class Monday working on this project, completing readings of “The Fall of the House of Usher,” assigned chapters (finish part one, ch. 1-5), or your parallel reading book. I will meet with anyone that wants help, live feedback, or advice on their pamphlets.
As this will be a week of accelerated instruction, with a focus on the EOC, I wanted to be sure to provide you with the necessary resources you can use to prepare for this important assessment. Below is the list of study guides you can use. Specific readings and activities will be assigned after I assess the latest common assessment data.
-Turn in your signed AP contract as soon as possible. I need to turn these in by the end of the week so an EXACT number of tests can be ordered.
-I am trying to schedule a time in which Mrs. Pothel can come in this week and help you all with your AP exam questions. We will also take advantage of her expertise in using Total Registration to get you registered for the exams you will be taking in May.
-Assessments for the Poe story and assigned chapters of Destiny of the Republic will be given Tuesday. Be sure to use this Quizlet study set to aid with any vocabulary issues you may have with the Poe story.
-I am designing and planning a creative response project for your parallel reading novel. Keep reading it.
-Tutoring continues this week. See me any morning, or Ms. Antonaucci in room 238 on Tuesday or Thursday afternoon. She will specifically help you with the rhetorical analysis free response questions this week. Transportation is provided after these sessions.
-Still don’t have your copy of the book? Here you go.
-The Quizlet for Destiny of the Republic can be found here.
