This week we begin our first unit on persuasive writing. Students will be reading and analyzing arguments, identifying claims, reasons, and evidence. Students will receive new vocabulary words soon, but there will be no test this week.
We are learning about Aristotle's Rhetorical Triangle. There will be a test on it at the end of the week.
Students will also be learning how to create their own arguments.
Students in the advanced Language and Literature class will be reading The Call of the Wild, as well.
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.
