The Week of May 14, 2012

We have a busy week coming up; I hope you are ready!

We will be working through Wednesday to prepare your lessons for your classmates.  We will be presenting Thursday and Friday.  Please be sure to use the rubric I posted last week so you will get full credit for your lesson.  If you are not finished planning your lesson by Wednesday, you MUST work on it Wednesday night to be ready to present Thursday.  I will be choosing the presentation order randomly, so you could be the first one to go on Thursday (fingers crossed)!  I can't stress how important it is to practice your speech many times before you present it to the class.  Remember, it must be 5-10 minutes long.  It must include an appropriate visual aid and at least one question for the class to answer.  In addition to getting a grade on your lesson, you will also get a grade on your participation in other students' lessons.  So, please show courtesy to your classmates when they are speaking and ask appropriate questions.

Keep in mind you will also have a geometry sky tower assignment due this Friday.  You will not have time to work on it Thursday or Friday (because of presentations), so you will need to complete it by Wednesday.

Here are a few other things happening this week:
1.  Ms. Carla will be pulling some students on Monday and Tuesday to complete some College411 questionnaires.
2.  The 2 & 3 Art Show will be Wednesday evening at 6:30.  I hope to see you at this amazing annual celebration creativity!
3.  Auditions for Ellis Got Talent will take place. Please see the schedule I posted by the door for your audition time.  Break a leg!

Finally (and most importantly), don't forget to give your mom a big hug and wish her a Happy Mother's Day!

See you tomorrow,
Mr. Trent
