Welcome back, Sophomores!

We will meet here each day this week to practice for the SBA.

We have three small assignments for today:

Assignment #1 (about 15 minutes needed):

In the blank space on the back of the green handout, answer these questions (3 points possible, first grade for 4th quarter):

1. Go to Turnitin.com. Based on the feedback you received on your 3rd quarter essay, what will you do the same or differently on the Performance Task (essay) portion of the SBA?

2. If your prompt asks you to write an argumentative essay instead of an explanatory essay, explain at least two things you would need to do differently from the essay you just turned in.  

3. Go to Skyward. What is your third quarter grade? What will you do the same or differently during 4th quarter to maintain or increase this grade?

Assignment #2 (about 20 minutes needed):

Complete the last page of the purple grammar handout (7 questions).

Also, review your score on the first page of the purple grammar handout. There were 5 points possible - mostly graded on effort, but I checked numbers 5 and 6. Half point off each if incorrect. You can finish and/or correct and turn in for more credit, and if you do, make sure to write a note to me at the top of the back page of the purple handout.

Assignment #3: (about 15 minutes needed):

Complete the task on the green handout (homework if not finished). You do not have enough room to write your response in the rectangle on the front page. Instead, use the remainder of the blank space on the back of the page (or lined paper).

 

Agenda for the remainder of the week: 

You will be completing the online practice test for the SBA.

Tues: Answer Questions 1-7. Question 4 is a typed response and will be graded.

Wed: Answer Questions 8-17.  Question 12 is a typed response and will be graded.

Thurs: Answer questions 18-30. Question 18 is a typed response and will be graded. You will need headphones for questions 22-27.
