This week, students will have their vocabulary test on Tuesday. I am also giving the young scholars regular reading accountability quizzes (about two per week) on The House of the Scorpion. My first period class should be past chapter 10 by now, and my other 7th grade class shouldn't be too far behind. All quizzes are open-note, not open-book. They know they are to be taking notes on their reading.
This week, we will be focusing on purposefully annotating texts for the purpose of writing both objective summaries AND deeper analyses of texts regarding theme, central idea, and supporting details.
New vocabulary will go out in the middle of the week.
Thanks for checking in! Have a great week. -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.
