Today during periods 4 and 5 you be given a little time to reflect on how the year has been going thus far in all your classes. Feel free to also talk about life outside of school, on an extra curricular level and socially. I am putting some of the ownership/responsibility on you to really think about what successes you are having this year. Let’s keep this positive. It never hurts to stop, breath and ponder what you really do in a day. You will be writing a well thought out, engaging post to your parents on how things have been going. You can write it using the literary devices we have learned about, in the form of a song, poem, Prezi, pod cast, drawing, concept map or really anything. Take your parents through your WordPress’s.
Your post will be graded according to this Basic Representing Rubric credit.
