The vocabulary test, on the words from the previous post, is Monday.
This week, we begin a new unit on Walter Dean Myers' The Glory Field. Persuasive writing is still a focus. Students will participate in a debate as a part of the formal assessment for this unit.
Projects from last weeks' How To mini-unit are due ASAP. I'd like them all in by Tuesday.
If your child has not recited the Maya Angelou quote for me, yet, then please encourage her or him to do so soon. Thanks for checking in.
In My Class:
All students are expected to behave as scholars. I am dedicated to fostering a safe, supportive, fun, rigorous academic environment. I love my job, I love your kids, and I'm going to do my best for them. I expect them to do their best as well.
