Tuesday April 7 Lesson

Hello everyone.

Kinda bummed right now.  My kid just returned back to San Diego State after Spring Break.  I will miss him while all this crazy is happening.

And my new puppy just pooped on the floor.  He hasn't done that in weeks.  What the heck?

So in one hour it was a double smack!!!

Anyway, here is today's lesson from the college board.  It is worth 50 points.  If you watch the whole thing and do the homework well.

Looking at the same piece as yesterday.  Focusing on setting.

AP Lesson 10:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2U5h1MA2ex4&list=PLoGgviqq4845L7Yj9c1kkIfdskkaLOUzD&index=10

Going to try something new for the homework though.

Type it into the comments below.  That way, others can see what you found.  BUT make it legit.  Don't read others until you post yours.  Let's see if this works.  Some of you are turning in great work that needs to be shared with others.

Happy Monday at Home AP kids.

Hello everyone,

Today I am starting the lessons that will actually count as assignments in the grade book.

This will be worth 100 points in the book.  If you don't do it, no big deal.  You get a NA.  It will not affect your grade.

If you do it, it will be graded.  I am not sure what it will do for your grade, but over the long haul of about 5 weeks, I am sure that they will help.

I really liked the lesson.  And the homework assignment is awesome.  Cool piece and deep.

1)  Watch the lesson on College Board:

2)  Homework:  Here is the passage that they used:

3.  Here is a link for the character vocabulary.

Then send me a text with a pic:  951-951-880-4804.  Add your name to the text.

Miss ya!

College Board Lesson 8: Developing Commentary

I just finished watching the lesson for today.  The homework was an entire essay.  And I am not going to grade an essay right now, so there are no points available today.

Also, with learning the test information posted in the update below, this lesson focuses on a novel, and you will not be writing on a novel on the test.

So watch the video lesson if you like.  I thought the use of Lord of the Flies was cool.

I think the lessons from her on out will focus more on the Q3 lesson.  If they don't, I will make assignments based on my own Q3 materials.

College Board Lesson 7: Writing a Thesis

Hello students.

I had a very special surprise guest come by today in her Graduation gown.  We took socially distance pics.

Made my day!

Anyway, here is today's College Board Lesson.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uivuAXQI8Yc&list=PLoGgviqq4845L7Yj9c1kkIfdskkaLOUzD&index=7

Only ten of you did yesterday's lesson on Thesis Writing.  Come on people, this is your last chance to prep and get extra credit.

After Friday, we go to actual "assignments" that won't count as much to your grade as extra credit.

The puppy's cut went well.  I don't think he is supposed to be running around like he is right now...  but he is.

Hope you are all well.

I bought my first masks today.  Ughhhh!

Be safe.  Warren

College Board Lesson 6

Hey Everyone,

Here is Lesson Six.

 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KxDKsKRnEiM&list=PLoGgviqq4845L7Yj9c1kkIfdskkaLOUzD&index=6

Not gonna lie.  I haven't done it yet. 

My wife is CRAZY with this virus thing, so while she was at work, I washed the dogs, and sterilized the whole house.

My hands are fried with bleach.  My nose hairs are gone.

BUT we are clean.

I will watch it in the morning after I take the new dog to get CUT.

Yeah, that cut.

Here is the link to the lesson. 

You can do the homework part of the lesson and send me a pic of your work.  It will still be extra credit today and tomorrow, but after that I have to make it an assignment (that you don't have to do), but it will help your grade, but not like extra credit does.

Sorry.  Warrem
