Over the weekend you should all be preparing for our final speaking assignment - our talk show called 20 Years Later. There are specific tasks based on your role in the show.
- Host - You need to write a brief introduction to the show (introduce the topic, situation, guests). You will also need to write questions for each person during the individual interviews and a few questions for the group discussion.
- Psychologist - You will need to write questions for each person during the individual interviews and a few questions for the group discussion.
- Characters - You will want a brief introduction about yourself. You will also want to consider possible questions and how you will answer these - coming up with sentence starters in Russian would be helpful for this.
- Viewers - Will you be asking questions or giving insights? If so, generate and write those. Will you be trying to create drama? How? Write what you will say to begin the conversations and anticipate possible responses.
On Tuesday we'll work together to prepare for Thursday's final speaking assignment. We'll be writing cue cards - it's important that everyone have work to be checked and developed on Tuesday.
Over the weekend you should continue to study and review for your final examination in Russian I. You've been given the study guide which outlines the topics you will be asked to cover. Additionally, you may want to look over your grades on PowerSchool to consider any places you want to reassess or put rubles for extra credit. On Tuesday we will continue speaking and answering questions (which we started today) as well as continue our film.
You should all be working on your essay assignment on Google Classroom over the weekend. You can also work on it on paper at home and type your work when we return. This essay is your final major grade of the year. You also have your study guide for the EOC - focus on learning terms and being able to recognize them so that if you see them on the exam then you are prepared!
