Rotation Activities - We finished up our rotations that were started yesterday (by color groups). If you were absent 9/13 and/or 9/14, please make sure to do the following by 9/15 or over the weekend:
- Have a dominant image you'd like me to approve for the front of your composition notebook (WRN). Make sure you set up your WRN the way mine is (I showed it in class this week).
- Brainstorm ideas for your version of the "Raised By Women" poem. Just start with list making - ideas of who or what has had an impact on you and/or who or what has had an influence on who you are today (e.g. the obvious immediate family members, but push yourself to think more widely/broadly and abstractly - mom's BFF's, neighbors, musicians, novelists, poets, civil rights activists, the very hallways of da Vinci, etc.).
Important Poem Note: You are NOT writing your poem yet. You are merely filling the well, putting ideas down on paper that you can pull from when it's time to write your poem. The more tools you have in your poetry idea box, the more you'll have to work with when it comes to doing the work of sitting down to write your poem, which won't be until next week.
PICTURE DAY IS TOMORROW - TRY NOT TO LOSE YOUR MIND!!! It's only a photo and it can be retaken later. Don't forget, if you're purchasing photos, to have your order form.
