Good Day to You All -
As of this past Friday, students should have completed their argument rough drafts. They will type them and forward them to me this Monday. I will be grading them throughout the week as we move on to new argument topics and analyses.
We also need to get back to a little grammar instruction; therefore, I'm going to be focusing on phrases - prepositional, appositive, infinitive, gerund, and participial phrases over the next couple of weeks. Students' ability to identify phrases will be assessed either at the end of the week or early next week, depending on progress. Hopefully, students will be able to incorporate this new knowledge into their writing.
A new round of Greek and Latin roots will go out this week.
Advanced Language and Literature has some Call of the Wild work due at the start of the week, and a vocabulary test on words from the book later in the week. These students should be ready to start reading chapters 6 and 7 this week.
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.
