Don’t forget about Tuesday Night’s Student Led Conferences.
You have an opportunity to say “Look Ma, I did this….”
Here is a copy of the work introduction that I prepared for you
Thank you for coming to the student led conferences with me. I am going to tell you about my English class. Ms. Burton is my teacher.
So far this semester we have studied: Short stories, Nonfiction, Poetry and Drama. I have:
- created an ePortfolio that houses my work
- worked on wikipages displaying responses to literature read in class
- created blog posts about literature read in class
- created blog posts about 10 self discovery questions about myself and my beliefs
Here is some of the work that I have done in this class:
Short Stories – We completed a digital story about the story of our choice. Here is mine (show parent your PhotoPeach video)
Nonfiction – We have completed blog posts about some of the articles/books we have read and pictures that we have analyzed. (Show parent the posts written in response to gun control article, editorial pictures analyzed or work done for The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens Project. )
Poetry – I have written several poems and analyzed a poem that we read in class. (Show parent your poems)
Drama – As part of our study of Shakespeare and Romeo and Juliet, I have researched about Shakespearean times and written insults and compliments in Shakespearean language. (Show parents blog posts and handouts from these activities.)
