This week in 9th grade English we all got to take a look at the new Chromebooks that have been made available to us by the generosity of the trustees. Each class got enrolled in one of my tunritin.com sections, and checked into their NoodleTools account to make sure they knew their way around, and knew their passwords. We do all this work in anticipation of continuing with our multi-genre research papers. These large projects will be broken into chunks, and we will do a good deal of work in class. eventually though there will be work that comes home.
We are finishing up our study of Sandra Cisneros’ House on Mango Street. This week in class the students worked in groups to create an annotated map of Mango Street. Next week be on the look out for the students’ first take home test.
