For the weekend you need to focus on studying and preparing for your quiz on Monday. Your quiz will focus on the Russian literature that we have studied in this unit. Make sure that you are familiar with:
- A Young Doctor's Notebook - Based on stories by Mikhail Afansevich Bulgakov
- "Before spring there are days like these..." and "Everything is plundered..." by Anna Andreevna Akhmatova
- "A Problem" by Anton Pavlovich Chekhov
- "I have visited again..." by Alexsandr Sergeevich Pushkin
If you don't have notes you can request a .pdf of the them from me via email. Also many of these texts are available online. A Young Doctor's Notebook is on Netflix. You can also check out a book for the weekend.
Your quiz will have multiple choice, vocabulary, and a short answer. You'll get a progress report and have an extra credit opportunity.
Ask for help if you need it.
If you need the weekend to complete your project take it, but make sure that you finish. On Monday you'll also be assessed on the use of adjectives, possessive pronouns, and demonstrative pronouns in all cases. There will be multiple choice, matching, fill in the blank, and also a dialogue with listening and questions. Remember that all of the information is in your textbooks and the dialogue is also printed in your textbook at the beginning of chapter two. The audio of the file is located here and starts at about 15:00. The exercises at the end of the chapter can also be helpful. I'm available tomorrow for questions.
A lot of you were excited about your projects today, and that excites me. For the weekend, make sure that you complete exercise I and also work with exercise III, the second one is only for extra practice if you want/need it. We will have some time to work on the visuals on Monday in class, but if you have a plan or a rough draft going into that, all the better - hopefully our Russian weathergirls helped to inspire those.
Make sure to those of you who picked obscure cities that you use the general area to cite the weather, look up the region and climate data.
On Monday we'll refine this project a bit more and put in some leg work. Here's another weathergirl for you, она быстро говорит по-русски.
