Hello Studious Students,
I wish you a safe and enjoyable spring break. Within this break remember to take time to admire a tree, smile and STUDY 🙂
You should all have a copy of the Spring Break Workbook that I created, and the booklet from College Board with a full length practice test.
Please complete the reading section of the practice test on the bubble sheet provided in the workbook. Correct your test (answers in the back). Show me your score on April 8. Of course it is in your best interest to complete the entire exam.
My workbook is to be completed in its entirety. It is not as long as it seems. Many pages are review and notes to read over. Please take your time and work diligently on each assignment. Each of those exercises is to help you prepare for the PSAT or SAT. Remember the second article in the workbook (p. 142 Passage C1) is to be fully annotated (steps 1-5) directly on the article. You will have a quiz on Monday, April 8 when you return (10 questions). If you have any questions please feel free to email me over the break.
Have a beautiful break. You will be missed 🙂

Use this presentation to complete the graphic portion of the SAT practice workbook.
Guess what? You can link your PSAT score from College Board to Khan Academy with three easy steps. Why do this? Well, if you link your score with Khan Academy, they will create a individualized practice based on your score in math and reading. It will benefit and maximize your study sessions with Khan Academy.
If you do not know your College Board login info, either click “forgot username and password” or call their costumer service department. I have the instructions attached in this power point and other links to help.
Watch the TED Talk and write a body paragraph on a rhetorical strategy Dr. Winch uses to build his argument. Provide a topic sentence, assertion, evidence and reasoning. Remember to provide at least two pieces of evidence for the paragraph. We may write the whole essay later, but at least have one body done.
Please watch the following videos discussing rhetorical analysis. If you are still confused, these should help clarify.
Feel free to email me over the weekend. Don’t forget your final draft is due Monday.
