Students did a lot of research and project design last week, so the ANIMAL FARM packet being turned in by Friday was pushing it. However, starting Monday, I should be seeing them come in. I will begin grading them this week.
Monday, students will present their research to the class. Everyone is expected to participate with a speaking part during the presentations.
We will start a new unit in the next few days. No novel for this one. We'll cover many shorter passages. Students will be writing a compare and contrast essay about two of the texts that we cover.
WE will wrap up AF this week with academic conversations and a short essay test.
That's all for now. Thanks - JN
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.
