Lessons for Monday, February 10, 2014.

I am not here, so I want to ensure that you still are able to complete the lesson that I have planned out for you in ELA.

A. DOL - Make the corrections in spelling, punctuation, grammar, usage, capitalization.

Interschool Digital Dystopian Blogging Unit...
Today you will need to join Edmodo groups and join book groups for the Edmodo part of our chatting. Edmodo is very similar to blogging with Kidblog, because you will only be able to chat with those in your group. No one on the outside will be able to join. Today you are to go to Edmodo and join a group. Some students have already done this earlier in the year (with an Edmodo class that I created back in November, with the intention of using Edmodo at some point... Well here we are!)

You will be asked to join 2 Edmodo groups. One will be for the Digital Dystopian Book Club (which means a group of over 100 students between students of St. Francis, St. Gabriel and Deshaye Catholic), and the other Edmodo group will be for your specific novel (which will have between 12-20 students).
See the chart below for links and user codes.
Sign in or sign up as a Student. It is a secure site. Only those who are accepted once they enter the user code are part of the group. Teachers will have a list of students as to who should be joining the group from each of the 3 schools.
