Today students began paragraph review using Google Classroom. Documents and assignments will be shared with students periodically using this app.
Students in 9EAGC examined paragraph organization and content today. 9C&E - Plan and Rough copy of economic paragraph due tomorrow. 9A - Planning due tomorrow. 9G - "What is a good Paragraph" due tomorrow.
9F - Examined how to make symbols / logos more powerful.
They worked on their representations for their quotes and discussion of Article A. 9F watched two videos to deepen their understanding of symbolism.
Symbols and Logos - students learned the difference between an acceptable / interesting / imaginative symbol
Famous Logos and Hidden meanings - students identified hidden meanings in logos= imaginative
Together we worked through how to redesign our acceptable symbols to make them more interesting (by combining) and then attempted to include some hidden meaning.
