Week at a glance ~ 10/15/12 to 10/19/12

Posted on October 14, 2012. Filed under: IRLA Class | Tags: , |

This week, we will develop our thesis statements, commit to one for our personal essay, and then start to organize our support and the body paragraphs (using the boxes and bullets method).

Also, because we will be in the computer lab on Wednesday for the Wordly Wise assessment, you will have the remainder of the class time to work on updating your e-Portfolios.  You may add artifacts and links, include process work, explain the purpose of the unit, demonstrate growth so far in this unit, update the reflection journal, etc.

Check out this rubric that explains how your portfolios will be assessed.  The first assessment will take place at the end of the Personal Essay unit.

On the 1/2 days (Thursday and Friday), we will spend time on our reading work.   As yet another example of how you may set up your response work, here is the work I did for the first week of my Independent Reading Response 4 (IRR4)…I will have it in the classroom to show you as well!  Remember, the IRR4 is due this Friday!  🙂

We will continue with the pronoun work this week for grammar, and you have your Wordly Wise Assessment #2 on Wednesday.  (Wordly Wise list #3 will be issued and is due on 10/31.)


  • We will be in the computer lab on Wednesday
  • Thursday and Friday are 1/2 days.
  • Flex this week will be:
    • Monday – Period 4
    • Tuesday – Period 5
    • Wednesday – Period 8
    • Thursday and Friday – no FLex (1/2 days)

There is a grade on Infinite Campus that is confusing to me. It is on 10 – 5 Reading Response 3. Can we rediscuss my grade during class tomorrow?

Of course!

I think the “week at a glance” is a good way to inform us on what will be upcoming or new that we will learn this week
