Wondering what this blog is all about? We’re a group of students reading works of classic literature and blogging about the experience.
For today’s blog topic, let’s check our progress. Submit a comment that does the following:
- State the title and author.
- Summarize the plot of the story so far.
- Tell (honestly) what page you’re on.
- Re-assess your time frame for completing the book.
- Set a new goal if you need to.
How many pages per day do you need to get through, in order to finish the book before the end of the quarter? If we start typing our final exam on March 9th, that means we have about 17 more school days left before we need to finish our books (not including weekends).
If you’re not keeping up, step up the pace. Set a new goal for how many pages you need to read each day, in order to finish.
The plan is:
- On March 7th, Mrs. Sparhawk hands out the final exam.
- On March 8th we complete the last of our online journals.
- On March 9th, we begin typing the first draft of our final exams. We get to work on these March 9th, 10th, and 11th.
- On March 11th, we print our first draft.
- On March 14th and 15th, we edit in the classroom.
- On March 16th, 17th, and 18th, we type up the final draft of our final exams.
- Mrs. Sparhawk collects our final exams on the 18th.
So as of today, we’ve nearly reached the middle of the quarter. Are you half-way through your book yet? If not, you might want to step up the pace to meet the deadline.
