English 1: Discussion and Reading

Today, students responded to OGT 37:

Which is the best way to edit the sentence below?

Before class, Lisa recopied notes, reviewed notes, definitions, and facts, and practiced the open response questions.

  • A. Before class, Lisa recopied notes reviewed notes definitions and facts and practiced the open response questions.
  • B. Before class, Lisa recopied notes, reviewed notes definitions and facts, and practiced the open response questions.
  • C. Before class, Lisa recopied notes; reviewed notes, definitions, and facts; and practiced the open response questions.
  • D. Before class, Lisa recopied notes; reviewed notes; definitions; and facts; and practiced open response questions.

Then, we discussed yesterday’s worksheet as a class and began reading chapter 2 of Fahrenheit 451 and I passed out the worksheet for book 2: The Sieve and the Sand Themes and Symbols.  Students should work on this worksheet as we read chapter 2.  The due date is Friday.

Also due on Friday:

  • A three-paragraph summary of the events in book 2
  • Definitions of 15 words in the book that you didn’t understand or were most difficult for you to understand when you read them

There will be a quiz on Friday over book 2.  Expect short answer questions and no book or notes to be used in helping on the test.
