Another Main Character in my WiP is an ally and friend of our Protagonist, and would be observing the 10 days of introspection during this time of year. Progressive Jewish abolitionists befriended and struggled beside members of the Black community over the years in the United States, even during the period of chattel slavery. M. is one such man standing with both Free People of Color, like our hero’s teaching friend, and with slaves.

6pm: Spend one minute imagining what it would be like if you were not allowed to leave the
place where you had been born, and you had to work for your landlord forever as a Serf.
Write one or two sentences explaining what you think or feel when you
think about being a Serf…

7:00 to 7:07 Reading Comprehension
7:07 to 7:15 we will have our Grammar lecture, using this passage
7:15 to 7:25 we will have our math lecture, also using this same passage.
7:25-7:30 We will do the first question/problem from each online worksheet together, then
you finish the online activities from all three lectures individually on the classroom computers,
on your laptop or, on your smart phone.
7:00-7:07 Reading Comprehension: What is an observation, and how is it different
“In 1799, Napoleon Bonaparte, a successful and popular French general, toppled the
government and seized power. Five years later, he crowned himself emperor. Napoleon
reformed many aspects of society, including adopting a new uniform legal code” that abolished
serfdom. (Today’s reading comes from P. 284 of Peterson’s Master the HiSET, 2nd Edition…)
Where is the observation in this passage?
Is there any source evidence given in the passage to back up these observations?
Is there a grammatical error in this passage?
7:07 Grammar lecture: Capitalization, part one of three
Rule 1. A full sentence is always capitalized, whether it is in quotes or in
i.e.: The judge said, “This is my verdict.”
quoting a sentence within a
sentence, capitalize the sentence:
She asked, “What time will you be home?”
partial quotes: no capitalizing: He asked about the “best practices” for tests.
capitalize sentences in parentheses He was fired for incompetence. (He lost the
company a lot of money.)
Notice where this period goes: Full sentence: inside the paren…
no caps for non-sentences: He was fired for incompetence (and lost the
company a lot of money).
Notice where the period goes
Non-sentence: outside the parentheses…
“Rule 2. Capitalize proper nouns—and adjectives derived from proper nouns.
the Golden Gate Bridge
the Grand Canyon
a Russian song
a Shakespearean sonnet
a Freudian slip” (source: https://www.grammarbook.com/punctuation/capital.asp)
Please write one sentence using quotes… i.e. She said, “Lincoln wrote his speech on the back of
a French envelope.”
7:15 Mathematics: Intro. to Exponents
How would you explain the difference between addition and multiplication?
On a T-Chart, let’s list the differences between 3+3+3+3 versus 3 x 3 x 3 x 3.
What are your observations?
What is a repeated addition? What is a repeated multiplication?
What difference does our organizer (T-Chart) show between 3 x 4 and 3 to the 4th
Now let’s look at
Now, let’s do the first online Grammar worksheet question together:
then, let’s do the first online math worksheet problem together:
1.) Please do the rest of our online grammar worksheet from GrammarBook.com:
2.) Please do the remainder of online math worksheet on Khan Academy:
Mathematics work online and/or in books from 7:45 until 8:45.
8:40 Exit Questions:
1. Write one sentence explaining the difference between addition and
2. what capital letter is missing in this sentence?
3. What is a T-Chart used for?
4. What was a serf?
8:45 Turn in Exit Slip, Dismissal
some Action Items in support of literacy and hope that you can take right now:
1.) Download some public domain version of a classic book,
2.) Read a page,
3.) Share your thoughts on that page, perhaps as an update on your GoodReads reading,
4.) Write a novel that references a classic book, tells a good story, and makes a difference. I’m working on that through my historical fantasy #WiP, #WhoByFireIWill. Once published, donate one or more copies to your local public library, as I intend to do.
Other ideas welcome on how to #EndPoverty, #EndHomelessness, & #EndMoneyBail, starting with improving these four parts of our good #PublicDomainInfrastructure:
2. #ProBono legal aid and Education,
3. #UniversalHealthCare, and
4. good #publictransport
