Hello - well, at this point all Call of the Wild questions should have been submitted, and the third person narrative should have been as well. Late submissions are still welcome, but it gets harder and harder the longer one waits.
There is a comprehensive test on the novel this coming TUESDAY. I will have a study/review guide for them to take home Monday.
This coming week, students will begin analyzing persuasive writing in preparation for composing their own argument essays. We will be learning about Aristotle's Rhetorical Triangle.
There is no anchor novel for this new unit. We have a class set of How to Win Friends & Influence People which we will use from time to time, as well as several other short persuasive informational and literary pieces (which I will provide).
Vocabulary tests will resume shortly. The first batch of new words will be released to the students this week, and it will focus on academically & rhetorically themed vocabulary.
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.
