Class for 10-4-05

Let’s have a strong Tuesday!

Special Note: Again, today we will be saving files to the server. It is incredibly important that you take care to read the instructions carefully so that you save your files to the correct location with the correct name so that you will get credit for your work. If you have questions, remember to raise your hand and I will be with you as soon as I possibly can.

Homework: Write an introductory paragraph to your “Pledge” essay.

We have four tasks to perform today:
Task 1: Recording Essential Information in Binders
Task 2: Respond to Prompt for 12 Minutes
Task 3: Introductory paragraph notes
Task 4: Body Paragraphs for Pledge Essay

Task 1: Copy the Essential Information from today into Section 4 of your binder.
No. 31 When a guest visits our room, we will be on our best behavior and prepared to answer any questions the guests may have.
No. 32 When I call your home, answer the phone in an appropriate and respectful manner.
No. 33 Keep your hands and feet to yourself.

Task 2:
Respond to this prompt for 12 minutes MS Word.

Prompt: Suppose you have been appointed to a neighborhood improvement committee. You must make recommendations on ways to make your neighborhood a better place to live. Think about some changes you would like to make in your neighborhood. Write an essay to inform your reader of changes you would recommend to improve your neighborhood and why these changes are important.

Save your response as "Last Name" 10-4. My file would be saved as Chase 10-4. Please save your file in this class period's folder in the folder marked "10-4-05 Prompt."Write until time is called. Remember, we write the entire time.

Task 3:
When time is called, please close your computer, take out a blank piece of notebook paper and a writing utensil.
When we have finished writing, click HERE to complete Friday's online quiz. If you do not remember your user name or password, please raise your hand and I will come provide you with that information. Remember to take all three opportunities to improve your quiz score.

Task 4:
If you did not complete it Monday, please take out your body paragraphs from your essay on the "Pledge of Allegiance." Create a new MS Word file or open the file you created yesterday and type in those paragraphs. When you are done, save your essay as "LAST NAME" Pledge. My file would look like this "Chase Pledge." Please save your file in this period's folder in the folder named: Pledge Essay.
