Today I had another English zoom lesson with Hannah. I gave her a short vocab quiz on the words she was assigned last class and then I introduced the next set of vocabulary words, with the focus on the Greek/Latin root Phon, which means sound/voice. We then moved on to grammar where I taught her about subordinating conjunctions (SWABI) and misplaced modifiers.
Sharegift MUSB: AP Physics 1 Session 5/22/20
Sahana is a sophomore in the Bay Area who decided to take AP Physics 1 her sophomore year, but unfortunately had to withdraw from the class due to personal reasons. Today Sahana and I worked on a block problem that is frequently seen in AP physics 1 material. She remembered that she had lots of trouble with the dynamics unit- so I decided to extend the forces unit to the next session.
Today, Jake and I read and discussed an article about the importance of leaders, especially during this pandemic. We talked about key features such as courage and compassion. Although the article was more advanced than we were used to, we learned a couple of vocabulary words for him to retain and use. Our discussion about the need for effective global readers was eye-opening to how different countries are dealing with coronavirus. Although Jake lives in South Korea and I live in the U.S., our different lives helped to view this pandemic in a new way.
