Monday, 8/24

At the start of class, we reviewed the cell phone discussion from Thursday and students signed up for (A3, A4), and then we went over the syllabus for the year. We also reviewed the three different essays on the AP Exam. After this, I handed out two articles (Time Magazine and the Daily Times-Call) for students to read and annotate. We briefly discussed the pros and cons of running school all year rather than giving students and teachers a long summer break. Students then began writing an essay taking a position on this topic of year-round school. Homework: Please finish your year-round school essay for Wednesday; also, please show the syllabus to your parents and get the signature slip signed.
