For 7LTM: Learning From Home

Learning From Home

Hi 7LTM,

Here is a breakdown of tasks for you to accomplish while learning from home. :) 

1.  Read independently and log how much you read. (Start getting used to the Reading Log).  Try to read longer than 20 minutes. :) 

2.  Look over the Poetry and Prose table  (in the notes/below) and write a blog post on your main take aways.  It doesn’t have to be too long  but what I’d like to see are your ideas synthesized and shared.  Don’t forget to label your post and add some pictures.  End with a question to keep the conversation going.   

3.  Finally, look over your list (Ten Things You Know To Be True. I know, I owe you guys a post. It’s coming up).   Then walk away from your computer. Grab a piece of paper and a pencil/pen and attempt your first poem.  Do it outside. Or somewhere more inspiring than your desk.  See what you come up with.

In your shared English Folder (in Google Drive), create a new folder named Original Poetry.  Once you are done with your first poem...type it up in a google document and add it to this new folder.  I will be able to see it and give you some feedback first chance I get.

Ms. P

P.S. I sent the same thing via email and all the details are on the calendar on the site and our 7LTm English notes. :)
