Class for 11-2-05

Welcome back to the Classroom of Love!

Homework: Explain your team's assessment to a parent or guardian.

Today you have 3 tasks to complete.

Task 1: Essential Information No. 48.
Task 2: Review the checklist-rubric.
Task 3: Steps 1-5

Task 1: Please write the following Essential Information in Section 4 of your binders:

No. 48 Though others around you may try to distract you and take you off task, remember you are responsible for your own choices and will be held responsible for you own actions.

Task 2: Please listen and participate as needed as Miss Carrigan reviews the steps to creating your lesson. As you review the checklist, think to yourself, "Am I doing what I need to do to make sure I am ready to teach the class?"

Task 3: We're focusing on Steps 1-5 of the checklist again today. The difference? You individual lists of key concepts as well as your team's Master List are due at the end of the period today. You team's quiz/assessment is also due at the end of the period so I can look over your work tonight and make certain you are all on the right track. You have had three full days of class to work on this, so I am expecting some great stuff.

Once you have finished Steps 1-5, I have left sheets of chart paper on the back tables. Each team gets one piece of paper on which to complete the WEB described in step 6.

Alternative: If, for some reason, you choose not to work with your group or on this project today, you will read silently in class and complete the Reading Inventory sheet I have created for you. This does NOT mean you will not be responsible for the group work you choose not to do. It simply means a choice on your part not to complete the assignment does not give you the right to do no learning or thinking in my class.
