October 13

We started class with a practice PSAT writing test. Students scored the test, then calculated their scale score to see how they did for the verbal section of the PSAT. Links to resources are available on the PSAT Verbal Scoring doc on Classroom. College Board is a great resource!

We are tabling our discussion of reviews--we'll come back to it next 9 weeks.

We returned to Antigone and considered the 5 main conflicts as well as one man's opinion that Antigone is the most perfect example of drama. Students worked in groups to come up with modern-day scenarios of the 5 conflicts. We will use these ideas as support for a timed writing assignment tomorrow. The prompt for that assignment has been posted on Classroom under "Antigone is the best ever?!"

Coming Up:
  • Wednesday, October 19 - All sophomores and registered juniors will take the PSAT in the morning. 3rd and 4th period classes will review for exams.
