By now, all Animal Farm packets are turned in, all presentations have been made, and we are ready to proceed with a new unit. If you have a child who has not done well on OR has missed one of the first couple of assessments, the time for re-takes/make-ups is fleeting as we move forward into new material.
Our IB focus will be on Human Rights, and we will be reading and writing about various issues pertaining to that focus. Ultimately, students will have to write a Compare & Contrast essay about two previously discussed texts of their choosing.
For this unit's vocabulary studies, we will focus on word parts: affixes and Greek & Latin roots. First, students will be required to memorize the meanings of prefixes and provide words that use those prefixes. The prefix test will be a week from this Monday. Thanks - JN
