ASSIGNMENT TRACKER: Friday, April 21, 2017
Students and Parents: We are completing an SOL Review Passport before we have our test day. When students complete a destination (or "station"), either myself or the parent can check the student's score to verify the module has been completed, and then initial the Passport. Students have until May 3 to complete the minimum requirements listed on the sheet. We will be working on it in class, but students can work at home as well.
P.S. All subcategories of the IXL destinations must be completed in order to get the credit. For instance, analogies has two sections; you must complete both sections in order for me (or your parent) to sign off on it

Do not forget to complete your flashcards for tonight. You have nine flashcards to make. This time I did not provide the answers. You have to write your own answers. The answers to the flashcards will be provided after I check them tomorrow. Make sure you're using your study guide to help you!
ANNOUNCEMENT: Students and Parents: I am posting scores in the grade book for practice tests and study guide work in preparation for the SOL (flashcards, handouts, and hyperdoc links, etc.). I want students and families to be aware of current performance so that it is understood what should be completed or studied at home. If students do all their work on time and give their personal best while studying, that just helps them out in the long run when it comes to our SOL on May 3! Have a wonderful evening.
P.S. If time is available, I would recommend using IXL, SOL Pass, and Quizlet to help prepare. We are working on these in class as well, but if you would like extra time to complete these, feel free to study them at home

Students will complete the blue PLOT DIAGRAM worksheet for homework tonight. This plot diagram is to be used as a way to brainstorm ideas for the creative writing assignment that is due April 6.
