Bell Ringer Journal
Students will receive 5-7 minutes at the beginning of class to complete their bell ringer journal. It is imperative that students are in class on time to be able to utilize the entire 5-7 minutes for this assignment. The journal will be due every Monday.
Paragraph of the Week
We will discuss this week's paragraph of the week "Something Special" on Monday. The paragraph will be due the following Monday (10/23). Students will receive some time in class to work on their paragraphs. Please refer to the 8th Writing home page to see a guideline on how students can remain on track so as not to fall behind.
Students will complete a test online to determine which side of their brain they use more often. Students will then indicate their results on the Open Hemispheric Brain Dominance Scale. They will then journal about whether they agree or disagree with the results.
