• FIRST SEMESTER (September 2019 - January 2020)

    HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENTS, PROJECTS, QUIZZES and TESTS

    Listed below are homework assignments, in-class assignments, projects, quizzes, and tests.  Documents handed out in class can be found under the date that they were handed out.  If you click on the blue, underlined document, you will be able to access the document.  If you are absent, it is your responsibility to ask me for a copy of any documents that you did not receive (or you may print the document yourself).  If you lose a document, you must print an extra copy for yourself.  Do not expect me to give you an extra copy.  I typically copy only one or two extras in order to conserve resources.  

    _________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ 

    Read!  

    Though I do not formally assign reading for homework, I do expect that you will bring your book to and from school each day.  I hope you will read whenever you can! You have a goal/expectation to read 40 books by the end of this school year.  Reading outside of school will help you to reach this goal.  I encourage, invite, and beg you to read whenever you can "steal" some time to do so.  I definitely encourage you to read for at least 20-30 minutes each day outside of school during the week and for 45-60 minutes on Saturdays, Sundays, and each day during vacations.  If you don't currently "unplug" thirty minutes before you go to bed, this would be a wonderful time to develop this new habit.  Turn off your screens and open a book!

    Monday, September 23, 2019 - Rewrite G.U.M.S. Sentences 1 and 2 (due tomorrow);  G.U.M.S. Sentences 1 (due Friday, September 27); G.U.M.S. Study Guide 1 (due Wednesday, September 25); G.U.M.S. Quiz 1 (on Friday, September 27)
     
    1.)  Rewrite G.U.M.S. Sentences 1 and 2: We corrected sentences one and two in class today.  For homework, you will rewrite these on a piece of notebook paper.  These are due tomorrow.  Make sure to:
     
    • put your name and periods in the top, right corner of the page
    • title your page on the very top line (G.U.M.S. Sentences 1)
    • write in pencil or blue or black pen
    • have the holes of your paper on the left side of the page
    • put the number of each sentence in the left-hand margin
    • do not write in the right-hand margin
    • skip lines between each sentence
    • be accurate

    Here is a model for what the format should be for the G.U.M.S. Sentences:  Model for GUMS Sentences

    We are working on our writing accuracy when completing G.U.M.S. Sentences.  Due to this fact and that all errors and corrections were given in class, the grading criteria is rigorous.  If you have any error in a sentence, that entire sentence is marked wrong.  The grading is as follows:

    -1 = B

    -2 = C

    -3 = D

    -4 = F

    If you receive a D or an F, you will be expected to rewrite and resubmit your sentences.  If you receive a B or a C, you will not be allowed to resubmit.  (The honest answer to why I have chosen not to allow resubmitions on B and C work is because I spend so many hours grading assignments already.  My thought is: If you want an A, you will have to be very thoughtful and slow down.  You are allowed to have others edit your work.  You are also allowed to type your sentences.  Typing your sentences allows you to receive one extra point.  This would means the following:  - 1 = A;  - 2= B;  -3 = C;  -4 = D)

     
     
     
     
    2.)  G.U.M.S. (grammar, usage, mechanics, and spelling) Sentences 1:  We find and correct all the errors in these sentences in class.  You are then required to rewrite these five sentences perfectly (no errors allowed) on a piece of notebook paper.  Staple the notebook paper to the top of the handout.  All sentences must be corrected, rewritten, and handed in when you walk into class on Friday, September 27.
     
    Note: If you type your G.U.M.S. Sentences, in addition to rewriting these in class, you will receive one extra point on the sentences or the quiz on Friday.  
     
     
     
     
    3.)  G.U.M.S. Study Guide 1:  Find all nine errors in the paragraph.  Use the "clues" provided.  This is due on Wednesday, September 25.  Be ready for the first G.U.M.S. Paragraph Challenge on Wednesday!  It is okay to seek help from an adult before Wednesday.  Note to adults:  I encourage you to give clues to help the student find the error her/himself.  
     
     
    Note:  If you type the paragraph in this Study Guide, correct all errors, and hand this in on before the quiz on Friday, you will receive one extra point on the quiz.
     
     

    4.)  G.U.M.S. Quiz 1:  You will be given the exact same paragraph that is on Study Guide 1 for the quiz.  You will find and correct all nine errors and rewrite the paragraph correctly.  Use your Study Guide to prepare for this quiz.  Quiz on Friday, September 27.

    Friday, September 20, 2019 - No Official Homework Was Assigned for the Weekend - Read!  Read!  Read!  

    ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Thursday, September 19, 2019 - Socratic Circle (in class)

    1.)  Today in class, we held our first Socratic Circle of the year where you each argued what character from Seedfolks was most changed by the community garden.  If you were absent, you will discuss this with a trusted adult.  Tell the adult a bit about the book; give them some background information.  Explain what character's life you believe was changed the most and how their life was changed.  Please have this adult sign a note or email me.  They only need to simply tell me:

    "(Insert your name here) explained to me what character's life was most changed by the community garden in Seedfolks."  Please hand this in my Monday, September 23.

    2.)  Missing work:  I will be updating grades in Skyward over the weekend.  Today, I let all students know what assignments they are missing.  Please hand these missing assignments in by tomorrow if you would like these included in the gradebook this weekend.  I also encourage you to check the No Name Bin if you believe you handed in an assignment that I said was missing.  This weekend is also a great time to get caught up on any missing Writer's Notebook entries.  We have written six entries thus far.

    __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Wednesday, September 18, 2019 - Seedfolks Paragraph (due on Thursday, September 19) - Note:  This can be printed in my classroom when you walk into class on Thursday.

    1.)  Seedfolks Paragraph - Please see last night's assignment entry for a detailed description.

     

    Note:  We spent today in the library browsing phenomenal books in all nine genres.  On your reading list, you each wrote one book in each genre that you are looking forward to reading this year.  If you were absent, this in-class assignment will be marked with an asterisk (*) as no-count.  This means the assignment won't count for you or against you.

    __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Tuesday, September 17, 2019 - Seedfolks Paragraph (due on Thursday, September 19) - Note:  This can be printed in my classroom when you walk into class on Thursday.

    1.)  Seedfolks Paragraph - Write a paragraph about the character in Seedfolks whose life was most changed by the community garden.  The instructions and requirements for this paragraph are included on the handout you were given in class today and which is included below.

    Note:  Be certain to include evidence from the book in your paragraph.  I have included an example below.

    Tio Juan felt a greater sense of purpose in his life.  (Now that would not be enough - you must show how he felt a greater sense of purpose.  Inlcuding information about his life before he encounters the garden and after he encounters the garden is important.)  

    Tio Juan felt a greater sense of purpose in his life.  His great-nephew, Gonazlo, said that even though Tio Juan had been the "oldest man in his pueblo" when he lived in Guatemala, "here he became a little baby."  When Tio Juan discovers the garden and begins planting, he is able to be useful and do something he is good at.  Gonzalo realizes that because of this, "He changed from a baby back into a man."

    If you were writing about how Tio Juan's life was changed the most, you would need to have three supporting details to support your claim.  Above, I have one supporting detail: he felt a greater sense of purpose.  Perhaps another supporting detail might be that the garden allowed him to communicate with others and become a part of a community other than his family.  I would then need to show how this was true.  How did the garden allow him to commuicate with others and become a part of a community?  

    Seedfolks Paragraph - Instructions and Requirements

    Note:  This can be printed in my classroom when you walk into class on Thursday.

    __________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

    Monday, September 16, 2019 - Read Chapter Titled "Florence" in Seedfolks and the Afterword Titled "From Seed to Seedfolks" (read in class today);  Character Whose Life Was Changed the Most (due on Tuesday, September 17)

     

    1.)  Chapter titled "Florence" in Seedfolks and the Afterword Titled "From Seed to Seedfolks"  - Today in class we read the chapter in Seedfolks that is titled "Florence" on pages 82-87.  We also read the afterword that is titled "From Seed to Seedfolks" on pages 89-101.  If you were absent today, please read these pages upon your return.

     

    2.)  Character Whose Life Was Changed the Most - Title a piece of notebook paper with this title, "Seedfolks - Character Whose Life Changed the Most - (Insert the Name of the Character You Choose/Chose)" - You will select one character whose life you believe (and/or think you can successfully argue) was changed by the Gibb Street Community Garden more than any other character in Seedfolks.  I recommend that you thoughtfully make this choice.  I have listed all the characters you might select below. 

    After you make your choice, make a list of evidence that proves how this character's life was changed.  This list of evidence should be written in four or five bulletpoints (or more).  If you write, for instance, that Sae Young began to trust people, it is important that you include examples of how this was a change in her life and inlcude evidence to show how she began trusting people.  You might want to include direct quotes from the book when these quotes are powerful and meaningful to your claim.  In addition, I encourage you to include page numbers.  This is not required but may prove useful later.  Finally, you are not limited to only the evidence in one chapter.  The character you chose may appear in stories of other characters.  (due on Tuesday, September 16).

    Characters in Seedfolks: Kim, Ana, Wendell, Gonzalo, Tio Juan, Leona, Sam, Teenager Who Grows Pumpkins, Virgil, Virgil's Father, Sae Young, Curtis, Royce, Nora, Mr. Myles, Maricela, Maricela's baby, Amir, and Florence.

    Next week you will select a character from Seedfolks whose life you believe was changed by the garden more than any other character in the book.  You may want to begin scanning the book to help make your decision.   You will then find evidence to support your decision and defend this claim in a paragraph and in a Socratic Circle.

     

    2.)  Writer's Notebook Entry -  A Time I was Labeled, Stereotyped or Prejudged: Write for 15 minutes.  Please read the Thursday, September 5 and last night's (Thursday, September 12) homework entry for more detailed information about the Writer's Notebook Entries.  We are striving to zoom in on the memory or moment you are writing about and tell it with great detail.  

    Important note:  I expect that 15 minutes of writing will be equalivalent (equal) to at least three-fourths to one page of writing (with an average writing font without skipping lines).  

    You may write for more than 15 minutes if you would like to.  (due at the beginning of class on Monday, September 16)

     

    3.)  Explore the CultureGrams Database - We spent time in class today and yesterday exploring a country of interest to us in the CultureGrams Database.  Today, you were to list five interesting pieces of information about the culture you were studying on the "CultureGrams Outline" handout you were given in class.  These pieces of information can be from any section/category of the database and do not need to be written in complete sentences.  If you did not finish this in class today, you will do so over the weekend.  The steps for accessing the CultureGrams Database on the King County Library website were handed out yesterday and can be found below.  You will also find the handout, "CultureGrams Outline," below.  This was handed out in class today.

    If you have trouble accessing the CultureGrams Database through KCLS, you may want to try this:  online.culturegrams.com 

    Note:  If you do not have access to a computer at home, I encourage you to seek out computer access at the public library, our school libarary (after school), or come to my classroom.  I am here in my classroom most days after school.  If you cannot gain access to a computer, please bring a note from home letting me know.  At McMurray Middle School, we also have computers to loan students.

     _______________________________________________________________________________________________

    Thursday, September 5, 2019 - Read Chapter Titled "Wendell" in Seedfolks (read in class today);  Writer's Notebook Entry - A Time I Felt... (due tomorrow); Syllabus (last page signed - due on Monday, Sept. 9); Parent/Guardian "Homework Assignment" (due Monday, September 16)

     

    1.)  Chapter titled "Wendell" in Seedfolks  - Today in class we read the next chapter in Seedfolks that is titled "Wendell" on pages 11 - 16.  If you were absent today, please read these pages upon your return.

     

    2.)  Writer's Notebook Entry - A Time I Felt... -  Today, you will find a good place to write.  On the first page of your Writer's and Reader's Notebook, write an entry about a time in your life when you felt sad, suspicious, misunderstood or scared.  We are writing an entry that relates to the first three characters we met in Seedfolks (Kim, Ana, and Wendell).  You might also choose to write about a time that you felt brave, bossed around, or helpful.  You only need to choose one of these to write about.  

    Before you begin to write, you may choose to create a list of memories/of times you felt a certain way.  Sometimes before I begin to write, I like to brainstorm a list of ideas until I come up with one that I really want to write about.  After you choose a memory to write about, set a timer for 15 minutes.  This is a freewrite where you will just write, and write, and write about this memory without worrying about the spelling, neatness, and punctuation.  If you run out of things to write about this memory before the 15 minutes is over, try to think about other details you could add.  What were you feeling (sense of touch and emotion), thinking, smelling, hearing, seeing, and/or tasting.  Describe the setting.  If you still can't think of more to write, begin writing about another memory.
