English 1, 2, Honors: Regular Wednesday

Today, students copied the OGT skills notes for 2/9:

Use a comma:

  • To set off unimportant adjective clauses and phrases: My brother, who lives in New York, is an accountant.
  • To set off an appositive: Mr. Furst, my science teacher, was the club’s advisor.
  • To set off nouns of direct address: Heather, we all proud of you.

Then, students responded to journal 38:

“Excellence is not a singular act, but a habit. You are what you repeatedly do.” –Shaquille O’Neal; Write two questions on your own for this quote.  Answer them in extended response format.

Finally, students read independently.  If you were absent, be sure to read for 20 minutes and submit a half-page summary of your reading for credit.

Honors 2 Announcement: We do not have a lab tomorrow; therefore, I will push back Friday’s due date to Wednesday at 4pm.  HOWEVER.  HOWEVER, HOWEVER, HOWEVER!: Unless you’ve already spoken to me about a special case, no work will be accepted after Wednesday at 4pm.  I want to be sure there aren’t too many projects hanging over my head as we take the test next Friday.  Be sure to have all five projects turned in by Wednesday, February 16, 2011 at 4:00 pm EST.

Happy learning,
