1 Holocaust Literature Circles 2012

2 Picking your book I promise… – If you purchased a book or checked one out from the library, you are guaranteed to get that book, but you MUST write down you have the book already in your possession. If you write down the list, I will think you already got it – To try my hardest to get the book that is one of your top choices – To pair you up with a book I think you will enjoy You promise – If you already read the book you enjoy, to select another book. (you can always use the one you already read for extra credit) It is important that you go along with your group! – Not to complain if you did not already get the book you most wanted. (I tried my best! I really did!) – To keep up with your reading. If you are absent or fall behind it is up to you to do make up work. You only get as many days absent to make up your work. If you were absent and do not make up work within the allotted time, I have the right to count your work as a zero.

3 411 You can choose to read out loud or silently. If one person wants to read silently, he/she has the right to do so. We will read and write every day. The last 10 minutes will be devoted to writing. I will grade as we go. That means when I tell you to do work on a certain day, I may grade it the next day. You are allowed to take it home if you are not finished. If you leave it at home, I cannot grade it and you may get a zero, so make sure you are putting it right back in your bag as you finish Office workers, if you don’t finish, office work may be a great time to do any work or reading you are falling behind in IF YOU LOSE YOUR JOURNAL ALL THE GRADING I DID WAS ALSO LOST! HINT: You have to redo the entire thing!

4 What qualifies as cheating: Most of these activates are independent work. There are times when I will ask you to share what you wrote. That is still independent and people may not steal your ideas. To copy independent work is cheating For collaborative efforts, you may talk to your group, BUT you may NOT copy what someone else is writing. If you copy what someone else is writing, this is cheating. If you are absent, you must do your work independently. If you copy from a group member, this is cheating.

5 Grading This is a major grade The 15 daily assignments are 5 points each (75 total) The other 25 points come from your reading. I will take off 5 points of this 25 each time: – You are off task (talking about something other than the book, sleeping, etc.) – You do not read an appropriate amount of pages – You do not do the make-up or ISS reading

6 Making up missing work This powerpoint with all the activities is on my website and you can use that to make up work I have also posted the Powerpoint in the room that you can refer to If I catch you copying from your group, you get a zero for that section and a detention. The second time I catch you doing this, you get a zero for that section and a write up. If you are in ISS, that is your own fault. I can not penalize the people who are reading that book for each class by removing a copy of the book. IF YOU ARE IN ISS, IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO ASK THE ISS MONITOR TO E-MAIL ME AND ASK FOR A COPY OF THE BOOK FOR SECOND PERIOD AND YOUR ASSIGNMENT. I NEED THAT E-MAIL BEFORE 2 nd PERIOD. IT IS THEM YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO READ DURING 2 ND BECAUSE I WILL BE COMING BACK DOWN AT THE END OF SECOND TO COLLECT THE BOOK!!!! IF YOU HAVE THE COPY OF YOUR OWN BOOK AND NEED TO KNOW THE ASSIGNMENT YOU NEED TO ASK THE ISS MONITOR TO E-MAIL ME. FAILURE TO DO THE ASSIGNMENT IN ISS WILL RESULT IN YOU GETTING A ZERO FOR THAT DAY.

7 SET UP: Go to the next blank section in your journal This first blank page is your title page. – Put your heading in the upper right hand corner (it will help me insert your grades) – Draw a horizontal line in the middle – Above the horizontal line write the title of your book and underline it, the author’s name, and the genre – Below the horizontal line, divide this into three rows and 5 columns – Number each box 1-15. This is where I will keep track of your grades and give feedback

8 BEHIND THE TITLE PAGE Write the following only on the front of each page (we are leaving the backs blank incase you need to write on the back) – In the bottom right corner number the pages 1-15 – In the top right corner write: PAGES ____ -_____ Every day you will record the page you are starting on for that day and the page you end on for that day

9 EXPECTATIONS The first person in the door puts the journals on the desk You come in and grab your journal and fill in the page number BEFORE THE BELL If you are reading silently, you begin reading right away If you are reading aloud, as soon as your partners get here, you begin reading If you come in and are playing around or if I have to prompt you to begin, I have the right to take 5 points off your major grade If you are being exceptionally awesome about coming in and doing what you need to do, I may give bonus points to you. (Sometimes I will have it set in my head that everyone working before the bell gets the points, sometimes I will have it set in my head the first group in which all members present are working will get the points, sometimes it will award points to one person if everyone else in their group is off task, but the one person on task gets the points, sometimes I will not give points at all because it is too crazy for me to keep track that day because my brain is on other things. The first time someone complains about me not being “fair” or someone requests bonus points, I will stop bonus points for that class and only take away points when needed)
