Things to consider on testing days:
- wear comfortable clothing with a light jacket
- good rest the night before
- something to eat that will fuel you until lunch
- water bottle and a snack (clean-not sticky or will leave a residue on your fingers)
- arrive on time
- minimize stress that morning
- Smile. You've got this.
Mid Year Reminders
We have also had a chance to establish a relationship so we feel more comfortable making mistakes and learning from them.
So I feel that it is time to hold the kids more accountable for themselves. I should have all along been assessing late points. I haven't. At this point, I feel that I am not helping them (teaching them) if I don't have expectations for them that other teachers will. I do not intend to let any of my students fall, but there are lessons to be learned in a stumble. I encourage the kids to look at HAC to know their grades and missing assignments in every class. Also please help me urge them to use their Flight time and before/after school tutorial times to improve on any skill that they may need extra help with. I will do everything I can to be here for what they need. Thank you for sharing your kids with me.
What Are We Doing?
We are also beginning a unit on persuasion. It will include evaluating media messages including advertising (print and digital), political campaigns and speeches. The students will be able to analyze the messages that are bombarding them for logos, ethos and pathos.
