Homework
Reader's Response Overview
A basic idea of what should be in each paragraph...

I will post PDF copies of the homework here. I will also post copies of my root notes. Homework is assigned every Monday and is due the following Monday. I have put each week's documents under a separate heading. If you click on the large, underlined words, it will take you to a section where you can click on the document title and get a PDF of what was handed out or examined in class.

PDF SPICY Response Entries Q3   --   Students who chose this packet need to pick a different one of the entries to do each week. MAKE SURE YOU CLEARLY LABEL WHICH ENTRY YOU CHOSE! This is considered "spicy" because there is a minimum amount of direction for what needs to go in each paragraph. ALL entries need to be THREE paragraphs, but YOU need to decide how you structure it.
PDF MEDIUM Response Entries Q3   --  Students who chose this packet need to pick a different one of the entries to do each week. MAKE SURE YOU CLEARLY LABEL WHICH ENTRY YOU CHOSE! This is considered "medium" because there is a moderate amount of direction about what should go in each of the THREE paragraphs.
PDF MILD Response Entries Q3 AND Q4   --  Students who chose this packet need to pick a different one of the entries to do each week. YOU WILL NEED TO REPEAT ENTRIES! Students are NOT filling in the blank- they need to re-write the entry including their own information from the book they are reading. MAKE SURE YOU CLEARLY LABEL WHICH ENTRY YOU CHOSE! This is considered "mild" because it gives you a lot of guidance about how you should be structuring your THREE paragraphs. You might need to change or add things to make it work with the story you read.
PDF Explanations for what should be on the Blue Weekly Handout   --  This is notes to help you make good answers and sentences on your homework. It also answers some questions you might have. This is the Medium / Spicy version, but the same thing is true of the Mild version- include details and make sure you have periods!

We did not go over these words in class- I handed out notes, but make sure you ask me if you don't understand!

DO NOT forget that you need to choose a Reader's Response for each week! Try and do different ones. LABEL THEM! What level and which task...

HW Due 2/19

This homework was assigned 2/11 and is due TUESDAY 2/19 (no school Monday 2/18). 

There is NO root / vocabulary.

ALL you need to do is a Reader's Response based on the book you are reading independently. (you should be doing one of these every week anyway!)

Make sure you LABEL which response you did!

Copies of the packets are in this section of my website.

-sub/-super

These are prefixes- a prefix is a root that is almost always found at the beginning of the word.

"sub-" means under or below

"super-" means over or above

-grad/-gress Weekly Homework

This will go on your Third Quarter grade.

Don't forget to hand in a Reader's Response. I am not going to accept a whol pile of them at the end of the quarter! This is something you should be doing every week. Make sure you label it with which root word it goes with AND which Response Entry you are doing- topic AND level!

The words all connect somehow with the idea of "steps."

NOTE!- "gradient" means "little steps, but NOT little steps a person takes. It is little steps between one thing and another so that it looks like a smooth transition. For example, a gradient between dark and light, red and yellow, loud and soft, a high note and a low note, or sad to happy...
