Various Bits of Information for Seniors

There is NO VOCAB QUIZ to study for this week! I’m sure you’re noticing at this point in Frankenstein why we did vocabulary in such a “fast and furious” manner for the first 15 weeks of school — there are about five vocab words per page in this novel, and that will continue throughout the rest of the year.

This should be completed over the weekend. It amends your class notes and study guide:  F-notes ch. 5-7

You don’t need to read any additional chapters over the weekend, BUT you should have a good grasp of ch. 5-7. We will review ch. 7 in class on Monday.

FRANKENSTEIN QUEST/TWIZ news: As explained in class this week, you will have three quests (bigger than a quiz, shorter than a test) over Frankenstein before having your final test at the end of the novel. Your first quest will cover letters 1-4 and chapters 1-7. We will be trying something new next week for the administration of the test.

I understand that the week before break is heavily scheduled with tests in all classes. Because my senior classes are compiled of students with widely varying academic schedules, there is no way I could schedule the test for a single day next week without causing a significant portion of students to have three major assessments in one day.

SO…

Here’s what we will try; please follow closely. The quiz will be given by appointment within some specific parameters. You may take your quest any day next week during 5th, 6th, or 7th period (with the exception of 5th period on Thursday) or after school from 2:40 – 3:30. YOU WILL NEED TO SIGN UP ON MONDAY FOR THE TIME SLOT YOU WANT; YOU WILL BE HELD TO THE COMMITMENT YOU MAKE.

Quests will consist of different question combinations each day, but will be of equal difficulty.

CVCC students who are not here during 5, 6, and 7th period will be given the opportunity to take the quest during class time on WEDNESDAY.

This is a good opportunity for you to practice time management skills and to assess your own test preparation needs. Let’s make the most of it!

Have a good weekend out there in the lovely winter wonderland.
