Hello all! Hope you all enjoyed 2 relaxing cold weather days, but that doesn’t mean you can stop being productive! We have less than 3 weeks before the end of the quarter so we have to do our best to keep up the motivation and keep those good grades!!! Don’t be a slacker- get your work done! Of course, homework is listed below 🙂
In case you didn’t know, I would like to test who is faithfully following the website. I am offering a special field trip for the top 5 students from each of my classes. On Thursday, Feb. 12, I will be taking my top 20 students on a trip to Navy Pier at the Chicago Shakespeare Theater to see a performance of Macbeth and to have lunch on the pier. It should make for a pretty awesome day!
Here is the Criteria:
1) You must have no missing assignments.
2) You must have above 95% attendance. (Less than 5 days of absences)
3) You must answer the daily question posted on the website. This will also count as Extra credit towards missing work and low grades.
Today’s Daily Question: Flashback to the first time you heard anyone talk about Shakespeare. I’ll go first, There was this show called the Brady Bunch and one of the daughter’s on the show was auditioning for the play Romeo and Juliet. She tried out for the part of Juliet and didn’t get it, but I remember being a kid and thinking, hmmm… I wonder what that is about… It is now one of my favorite stories. All the love and betrayal and teenage angst and rebellion. Of course, drama, drama, drama… good stuff 😉
I will announce winners at the end of the quarter Jan. 29! Good luck!!!
