(short) Week at a glance ~ 11/19/12 to 11/23/12

Posted on November 18, 2012. Filed under: IRLA Class | Tags: , , |

Hi Everyone!

This (short) week, we will continue our READING work with Freak the Mighty by Rodman Philbrick and a focus on character study in preparation for the literary essay.  Monday and Tuesday, reading partnerships will continue to work with methods of characterization.  We’ll go over the differences between direct and indirect characterization and really start to explore the different types of indirect characterization.

We will also get back, and go over, our personal essays.  An OPTIONAL WRITING assignment will be offered for all students who would like to make additional improvements and revisions to the essay.  Details about this assignment can be found in Infinite Campus.  (Go into your “TO DO” list and then click on the assignment name for the description.)

Wednesday, we will be in the computer lab to take the WORD STUDY (WW4) assessment.  If time remains after you take the assessment, you may work on the essay or the portfolio work.


  • There is NO FLEX this week because of the early dismissal schedule.
  • Revision plan for the OPTIONAL assignment must be submitted and approved by 11/21.
  • Portfolio presentations on the Personal Essay Unit will begin on Monday, 11/26.

Have a very HAPPY THANKSGIVINGand enjoy the time off!

~Ms. Morris 🙂

Hi Ms. Morris,

I was wondering about a grade on IC(RR4)… You put it as a zero in the grade book. I can show the graded rubric on Monday if that’s ok.

Thanks!! Enjoy Thanksgiving!!

Thanks again for catching this! 🙂

This sounds like a pretty good week. I can’t wait to see what will happen in “Freak The Mighty”!!

What’s WW 4 reading activity?

Sharanya…this is the reading we went over in class today. Remember that this will help you on the assessment tomorrow. 🙂

hi miss morris,

i want to do the optional writing assignment but i didn’t get to conference with you today becuase we ran out of time in class. I can’t fill out the form until I talk to you about it. can I talk to you about it tomorrow?

Hi Michael. You should try to work on the plan and try to set a goal yourself, first…that would actually be best because then we can build upon your ideas when we conference.

We can plan to conference after you take the word study quiz tomorrow. OR…if you would like come see me in the morning, I can write you a pass for “lunch” tomorrow, and we can work on it then. (I suggest this option, because then we won’t have to worry about running out of time at the end of the day.)

See you tomorrow. 🙂

Hi Ms. Morris,

I want to do the optional assignment for the essay but I wasn’t here today in class. What should I do?
