This week, I am assigning members and topics to debate teams. These teams are being chosen by drawing names randomly. Most teams will consist of three members - there may be a few exceptions.
Students will be answering text dependent questions from The Glory Field. These may be graded. Your young scholar should be well into the first 130 some-odd pages by now. We are picking up steam on it.
That is pretty much all there is for now. The most recent vocabulary test has been graded. I'll pass them out tomorrow (Tuesday). Check with your child to find out if she or he needs to arrange for a retake. Thanks for checking in.
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.
