DEADLINE: (REPOST) LAST/SENIOR PROJECT – info on the Seniors Write! portfolio style project (remote learning style). See the handout here SENIORSWRITEeng8 *or on the SPRING2020 tab above and watch a video talk through with flipcode e8mg20 (check the new topic Seniors Write!). This project is due no later than the end of day Tuesday 5/12. (Basically, you write 4 short papers about yourself – one a day and you’re done in four days – or all at once. Either way, there’s not much left after that). There are tutorials on the Flipgrid about how to make new folder (if you’ve forgotten) and what your SENIORSWRITE2020 folder should look like when it is complete. Check them out.
IMPORTANT! – YOUR Seniors Write! folder has to be INSIDE the Submissions (or Drafts) folder for Mrs. C to see it. IF you create a new, free-standing folder, and don’t put it IN the sub folder, then you have to specifically share it with me. Otherwise I CAN’T see it and it will look as if you did not do this project!! PLEASE name your papers as indicated on the assignment sheet!! It gets really confusing when you name them just whatever.
NOTE: This project includes 4 papers: the COVID-19 letter, a “who I am” paper, a theme song paper, and a choose 1 (with 5 choices) – please write them ALL. No research required.
QW EXTRA CREDIT INFO: Check out the new topic on Flipgrid e8mg20 to see how you can show me your notebook entries virtually for bonus points. KEEP YOUR NOTEBOOKS! (They are yours. Put them in a drawer or a closet or something. You won’t believe how interesting they will be in a few years, when you can revisit your 17-year-old self). Quickwrite evidence due by end of next Thursday 5/14.
Multi-Genre: Several of you haven’t yet uploaded/recorded MG Presentations on the Flipgrid. Check out a few of your friend’s projects while you are there. You’ll find interesting work and amazing creativity.
Survey: Please fill out the end of course survey here: English 8 Survey & Permission or through the link on Google classroom or through the email you will get later today (I will be recording in Skyward who has completed the survey & I’d love to get them all back by 5/13).
