1. Homework. Students turned in their Poe stories/questions and their One-Pager.
2. Passbacks. Students received their results from the Cumulative Assessment we took last week. They each got an enumerated printout of their answers and the correct answer. Some classes also received their memoirs back.
3. Reviewing the CA. Looking at the test booklets and our results, we reviewed some frequently-missed questions and found evidence for the right answers in the text. Some classes heard a story about my former professor Cathy Davidson, told in her new book Now You See It, and her creative answers to the ACT.
4. Field Trip. On Thursday, we are planning to go on a half-day field trip to see a documentary film about the Loving v. Virginia Supreme Court case ending anti-miscegenation laws in the US. Seeing this film will provide students with the background knowledge necessary to enter into the shoes of Harper Lee’s 1960 to understand the events surrounding the publication of To Kill a Mockingbird, which we will be reading in the coming weeks.
