I have an important update for you: we are going to push our reading of The Glory Field into next semester. Instead, this coming week, we are starting a unit using Dickens' A Christmas Carol as our anchor text. You do not need to buy a copy of this book. We have copies here, and, it is also available for free on-line.
**Important** There is a vocabulary test Monday. Students will receive new words by mid-week. I will post them in due time.
Also, if students have not submitted their Contender essays/projects, they need to do so ASAP, as we are beginning a new unit with new tasks to be accomplished.
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.
