APLAT > Week 1 > Week 2

NOTA BENE: The information on this page is subject to (and most certainly will) change. Students are responsible for writing down their assignments in their CJs.

Feedback/Advice from 21-22 students just after taking the exam:
(1) If you want to master the content, take the Gimkit the night before/morning of we read a section and watch the video for review later that day

Proposals under consideration:
(1a) offer a grammar review quiz and a Gimkit quiz for HW: must do one of them, but do both for XC (students adamant that Gimkits were helpful in preparing) **high achieving students felt the grammar quizzes were not helpful, while the others felt they were
OR
(1b) start every class with 5-min Gimkit over current passage... where does that leave daily translation? will electronic device issues eat up too much time? Will the increased vocabulary understanding cut down on translation prep time (so, get that 5 min back)?
(2) limit daily translation XC to just 2-3 chunks (gave out too many points this past year)
(3) definitely continue practice of mock mult choice question sets for end of year review and buy the top in each group dinner on review night
(4) Once every other week, pick a "cold" passage and instead of translating, present it with an essay prompt and have students work through creating a "5" essay (like, with Fama passage, because it likely won't appear again)
(5) Work on pacing... how can I slow down review? Perhaps omit some of the "cold" to focus more intently on the "hot"... spend time consolidating/reviewing confusing grammar/vocab concepts
(6) incorporate the mock FRQ sections into class somehow.

Do Now: Identify the figure of speech found in the shortening of the word superum (line 4). What is it a shortened version of? What is the other term for "interlocking word order" (represented by the rest of line 4)? What is the other figure of speech word order that I typically abbreviate as ABBA?
