September 7: B Day September 9, 2012

1. Freewrite! Students wrote for five minutes about any topic.

2. Passing in forms. We collected the signed syllabus and student release form.

3. Organization. Students took a few minutes to organize their binders into five sections: General Info, Literature, Writing, Grammar, and Vocabulary. All students should have these dividers labeled in their binders.

4. Diagnostic test. We finished the test and then students completed a Personal Profile. During the last fifteen minutes of class, we had a freshman class meeting.

HW: Finish Personal Profile and return on Tuesday if you did not complete it in class. FYI, on Monday we will have a diagnostic writing test that will count as a quiz grade.

2. Lockers. If desired, students received their lockers and combinations, which we spent a few minutes in the hallway testing.

3. Theme continued. We practiced applying theme to And Then There Were None using the back of L1. As students left, they handed in a theme statement for the novel, which they will get feedback on on Monday, when we will have an in-class essay on the summer reading.

2. Finish diagnostic test and take summer reading test. When done, students completed a personal profile.
