Transcript of EOC Review Day 2: Kahoot

Who is Socrates?
Example
Socrates was a Greek philosopher (469 BC-399 BC) who believed that people should do their own thinking and questioning.
Argument Writing
Before you go
Hybrid cars are an effective strategy to fight pollution because they do not rely exclusively on fuel. For example, studies show that driving traditional vehicles on a daily basis leads to excessive air pollution. By switching to hybrid vehicles, which do not run off of petroleum, the typical driver would take an active stance on fighting that type of pollution.
Some may argue that
by focusing on cars and the culture of driving, we discourage the use of more environmentally friendly options like bikes.
That may be the case, but
in larger cities where more and more people are choosing to live in the suburbs, biking is not optional.
In that case
a car that causes less pollution is still the better option.

What does it look like altogether?
Here is an example of a Socratic Seminar.
As we watch, I want you to pay attention to how students discuss and interact. When the video is over I will ask you to describe what you saw.
Expectations II
Expectations
Asking questions
During a Socratic Seminar what should our expectations be for ourselves and each other?
Only one person talking at a time.
But that means that you have to be patient and respectful of others thoughts and ideas.
Participation is necessary.
Base your thoughts on something in the text. Always.
No hand raising, this is a conversation.
Inquiry is key!
Asking questions before and during the Socratic Seminar is essential!
But our goal isn't 'yes' and 'no' questions. That just gets boring!
Good questions for a Socratic Seminar are 'open ended'.
'How' and 'why' questions are the best way not to get hit a dead end in discussion.

Bell-Work
I can reflect upon my performance.
Learning Target(s):
Social media is a benefit to society because it connects people.

For example, on any given day you can observe people pausing for a moment to send a quick text or "check in" on their Facebook pages.
With a simple swipe of their phone screens, the average person can communicate with thousands.
Now, some may argue that this ease of connection has created a situation where , if one is not careful, internet predators can prey upon the innocent.
However, one can with some simple manipulation, limit who sees their information. After all, if you use social media, it is up to you to be cautious.
Safeguards and precautions like this, therefore, make social media more of a benefit than an issue.
Learning Target(s):
I can be proactive in reviewing and preparing for the EOC.
Just in case you're wondering, that means YOUR seat.
Learning Target(s):
"47% of American adults used social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Classmates.com in 2011, up from 26% in 2008." (ProCon.org). Most people today would not be alarmed by that statistic alone. In fact, most would probably estimate that an even higher number of people use social networking.
In short, we as a society have become accustomed to using social sites on a daily basis. In fact, that is where we often turn to first for breaking news, sports, and other information.

Social media is a benefit to society because it
connects people,
allows for the quick communication of ideas
,
and encourages people to be innovative
.

Thesis

So what's different? (TAKE NOTES)
You are used to CEA format.
Claim: Topic you are talking about/trying to prove.
Evidence: What you use to support that topic.
Analysis: Your explanation about how your evidence supports your topic/claim.
Learning Target(s):
I can draft a proficient paragraph for an argument essay that contains a clear claim, specific evidence, strong analysis, a counter claim, rebuttal and loop sentences.
You now have to think about the other side of the coin.
Counterclaim: Acknowledging what others may have to say to contradict your claim.
Rebuttal: Respond to the anticipated argument discussing why your point of view is still the MOST valid. Brings your argument full circle.
Loop: Bring the reader full circle by referring back to your claim.
Beverages should be allowed in classrooms because doing so would dramatically cut down requests for hall passes to get drinks. For example, Dr. Young stated “I probably have three to four students ask to get a drink each period.” Similarly, Ms. Wilson stated “there is always someone at one of the drink fountains and they should be in class.” Therefore, if students could bring their own beverage to class, there would be fewer requests to leave. Some may argue that drinking in the classroom may create unnecessary trash. However, if classroom rules and procedures for keeping one's space clean are posted, established, and enforced, these issues would not exist. Taking this into consideration, allowing beverages in class would be more beneficial than disorderly.
Can you identify each part?

You may submit the paragraph electronically if you like. You can either scan the QR code or go to http://goo.gl/forms/Nq4UcMCKlP
Part II: Letter to a future scholar
You ARE juniors now. Yep, in just 7 short weeks, we are done. In your opinion, what 3 things does a student need to do to survive their sophomore year? What would you have done differently? Write a letter to a future sophomore (yes, I will give your letters to them next year.) Tell them what you wished you had known.
Irony: 3 Types
Verbal:
Saying the opposite of what you really mean.
Situational:
When the opposite of what is expected to happen, happens.
Dramatic:
When the reader is aware of something and the characters in the story are not. (Think monster in the closet)

Situation:
Some people feel that the public school system does not adequately prepare students for the real world. Identify one improvement you think schools need to make in order to better prepare students for life after high school.

Task:
Write a letter to the school board in which you describe this
improvement and explain why it is needed.

Situation:
You are serving on a committee that will design a new high school for your community. Choose one feature for the new high school that you will suggest to the design committee.

Task:
Write a report to the committee, explaining what this feature is and why it is beneficial.
Situation:
Occasionally, students in elementary school are allowed to advance to the next grade even though they have not successfully completed the lower grade. Advocates of “ social promotion”
think that keeping a child in a grade for longer than a year hurts his or her development and self-esteem.

Task:
Write an essay stating your opinion on this issue, making sure to support your opinion with convincing reasons.
We will be reviewing thesis statements today.
Please complete your EOC Reflection.
