Good morning! I will for sure be back to school this week on Friday, so I will see you then! :) In the meantime, remember that we are one day behind on assignments due to the snow day you got last Friday. Today you will be working on the things in your "workbook" that are under "Tuesday, February 24".
**Make sure you're keeping up on charging the Kindles and laptops! :)
To Do List
1. Do warm-up questions #51-55. | Check your answers with the sub.
2. IF YOU ARE DONE WITH DISCOVERY ED TESTING OR YOU ARE A SENIOR, SKIP AHEAD TO #3. If you were absent yesterday (2/24/15) or need to finish the Discovery Ed test, here is the information you need to get caught up:
Only JUNIORS will be taking the Discovery Ed test. Your score on this test goes into your records at Lee High School, so it's important to take your time and work carefully on this test. This is not a partner or group activity; move away from classmates that you will feel tempted to talk to or who will distract you from doing your best.
To take the test, click on your hour. DO NOT TYPE YOUR NAME. Just type x x ("x space x") and then choose your name from the list that comes up to work on the test.
Fourth Hour Test
Fifth Hour Test
Sixth Hour Test
3. Take notes and add them to your Cornell notes pages. The notes are posted below.
4. Complete the four questions in your "workbook". Read each question carefully. All questions required DETAILED answers. If you need more space, feel free to complete your questions on notebook paper and staple the paper into your booklet (label your notebook paper with today's date just in case it would come loose).
5. If you need more to do, you can work on vocabulary (definitions) for Chapter Six.
Make sure to plug in the laptops when you are done using them so that they are ready to use tomorrow.
YOUR WORKBOOKS WILL BE DUE NEXT WEEK MONDAY (the last page is what we will do on Monday). I will be grading workbooks in the afternoon after you take your ACT tests on Tuesday and Wednesday. I should have grades completely updated by next Thursday/Friday (I appreciate your patience while I get caught up after being gone!). :) If you are very behind on Call of the Wild assignments, you have the rest of this week/weekend to finish your work. Double-check all of your PEAs and other work to make sure it is at a high level. Exam week and report cards are coming!
Have a great day! I can't wait to see all of you on Friday! :)
collective memory - a collection of memories passed from one generation to the next.
-- When the author mentions "collective memory," he's actually speaking about the instincts that animals are born with that help them to survive (things that they are born knowing that they don't have to be taught).
moral - what someone believes is acceptable for him or herself to do
immoral - what someone believes is unacceptable to him or herself to do
-- In the Klondike, the only "moral code" is "Kill or be killed," "Might makes right," and "Survival of the fittest" (the author refers to all of this as "The Law of Club and Fang" in Chapter 2). Fighting and killing might be immoral in civilized society, but in the wild, it is the only way to determine who is the strongest and who will survive. You will see how this plays out in Chapters Six and Seven!
