Agenda 1/23/2020

Bell work:  Obtain your computer (BIG CART) and log into Vportal. Write in your planner and locate your IA notebook- page 68.


  • Write the summary/ vocabulary assignment for chapter one of HP.  These will be checked for accuracy tomorrow.

  • Reading Log #3 is due next week.

  • RL #2 may be turned in for late credit next week as well.


  1. Log into your textbook- page 177.

  2. Page 68. “Vocab for Bloody Times” and in Cornell Note fashion, document the 10 vocabulary words found within the story.  Be sure the word goes on the left and full definition goes on the right. SKIP AT LEAST ONE LINE between words.

  3. Record at least 10 more vocabulary words of which you are unsure of their meanings.  Use any space you still have on page 68 and move on to the next page for the rest of your words. We will research the definitions of these additional words at a later date.

  4. By end of class you should be nearing the end of this text.

Chapter 3- Harry meets Hagrid who tells Harry the Dursleys have been lying (to) him about his parents.  Harry finds out he is a wizard, discovers he will attend Hogwarts, and for the first time in his life, celebrates his birthday.

  • misleading – this changes the connotation to a higher level of dishonesty.  It’s more than a little lie they have told Harry.

  • observes- the connotation here means not only are they celebrating his birthday, but the fact is, no one has ever even noticed his birthday before.  His birthday has been ignored all of this time and not observed.

4. Determine Socratic Seminar groups.

5.  Sit with your group, exchange contact information, document this on page 64, GOOGLE and take notes on what a Socratic Seminar is.  WIKIPEDIA is perfect for this.
