Week One A New Day
English 10 Do Now: 4/15/13 Respond in complete sentences to the following questions about this class: What have you tried at, but failed? Why do you think that happened? What were you successful at? If you could do one skill better this quarter what would it be? How could you achieve it?
English 10 4/15/13 Quarter at a Glance: Reflective writing (with a lil grammar something something, yaknow what Im sayin?) Crazy short story JULIUS CAESAR (play) With these specifics, add to your Do Now Response, any obstacles you anticipate for yourself.
A goal is a dream with a deadline Goals should be SMART S - Specific (or Significant). M - Measurable (or Meaningful). A - Attainable (or Action-Oriented). R - Relevant (or Rewarding). T - Time-bound (or Trackable).
Examples of SMART GOALS Since, I did not turn in much work last quarter, I will make sure I turn in 90% of all homework in order to get my A this quarter. Since I did not participate much last quarter, I will raise my hand at least once a week and take a speaking role when we read Julius Caesar this quarter. Now you try. Write three SMART Goals that will help you get your A this quarter.
For each goal, think about small steps needed to reach it Example goal: Since, I did not turn in much work last quarter, I will make sure I turn in 90% of all homework in order to get my A this quarter. Example steps: Check chshomework.wikispaces.com everyday Get absences excused, ask for make-up work outside of class Find missing Do Nows on wiki too.

English 10 Do Now: 4/16/13 You are never too old to set another goal or to dream a new dream. (C. S. Lewis ) Nothing can stop the man with the right mental attitude from achieving his goal; nothing on earth can help the man with the wrong mental attitude. (Thomas Jefferson ) Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goal. (Henry Ford) A goal is a dream with a deadline. (Napoleon Hill ) Happiness is not a goal; it is a by-product. (Eleanor Roosevelt) Leaders aren't born they are made. And they are made just like anything else, through hard work. And that's the price we'll have to pay to achieve that goal, or any goal. (Vince Lombardi )
