# OWL – Progress Interim Reports

Students have partners that they are evaluating on their progress. They are to use the attached form to fill out.  The assessing partners are getting graded on the quality of feedback they are giving their partners on their projects.
When we do our presentations, these same partners will be asked what they saw that needed to be worked on and what questions they had so the dragons know what they are looking for.

# Ancient Egypt Role Playing

Students are going to prepare for a role-playing activity.  The assignment is to read through the material in the link below and complete the research on your role/character. Then, the next day, we are going to do some role-playing conversations to prepare ourselves to convince the Vizier that, as labourers, we need a pay raise to build the pyramids.

23.01.24 Ancient Egypt Role play activity

Tuesday: Prepare for the role

Wednesday: Practice conversations and planning of the argument

Thursday: Writing out our argument to the Vizier (persuasive writing)

For any students that are absent:  You will not be selected a role. Instead, you may role a dice to choose which row your role is, and then roll again for which job from left to right.  That way you will also receive a random role similar to those that were in class.
