REMINDER: ACCELERATED QUIZ

By the end of the semester, all students are to have finished at least three books and passed the corresponding AR quiz. Each grading period, or every six weeks, students should finish reading a book of their choice, which is within their ZPD.

One exception to this is if a student is reading a particularly long book, such as one of the Harry Potter books or It. In this case, students should talk to me.

After a student finishes reading his/her book, they are to take the AR quiz that goes with the book. Students are expected to pass the AR quiz with a 70% or better.

In google classroom, there is an assignment for students to keep a record of books they read and finished or books they did not finish with the reason why.

Please be sure to finish your book, and take an AR quiz!

ALTHOUGH TEACHERS USUALLY GIVE MORE THAN ENOUGH TIME FOR STUDENTS TO COMPLETE PROJECTS, THE VERY SAD AND UGLY TRUTH IS THAT STUDENTS USUALLY WAIT UNTIL THE LAST MINUTE TO START AND FINISH A PROJECT. BUT EVERY NOW AND THEN, MIRACULOUSLY AND MAGICALLY A MIRACLE OCCURS – SOMEONE DOES THEIR PROJECT AHEAD OF TIME AND TURNS IT IN EARLY. WAY TO BE PROMPT, PRETTY, AND PERFECTLY PUNCTUAL, ADARA!! YOU ARE FIRST TO TURN IN YOUR MINI PROJECT!
