Day 25 – Compositions

Almost forgot to blog for a day.  Friday is quiz day and my day of reckoning.  I get to find out what the students have retained during the week and how well they take notes.  For a couple weeks in a row, I am finding that students are not adjusting to my pattern where I am checking one random page of notes while they take a quiz.  I let them know what they are missing and remind them to get it from their peers.   Notes have not improved yet.

The rest of the lesson was for introducing compositions and having students use their notes to recall the remainder of the transformations.  Tomorrow, I am going off track and having students construct notes as a class.  I cannot see how students will have success in the class without good note-taking.
