February 10

IRT: ~20 minutes
WNB: "The Huge Misconception about Reading" - Before watching the video, students talked in their groups about what they thought the misconception might be. After viewing, they responded in their notebooks to these questions: Did you predict correctly? Do you agree with the video?

We learned about gerunds and infinitives and how they're used in writing. There will be a few questions on Thursday's test about gerunds and infinitives.

Students used the remaining time to work on the humanity project. I visited with each group to check on their progress. Students should be working on their individual parts of the project outside of class. I have posted a template for the essay on Classroom. All parts of the project are due Tuesday, 2/21, by the end of the class period. We will have class time next week.

I apologize for not posting to the blog for the 3 days I was gone. Students received an agenda in class each day, so I'm linking those here.
