There will be a vocabulary test Tuesday on the first batch of words from A Christmas Carol. This will be part fill-in-the-blank and part create-your-own-sentence. New words will be distributed to scholars on Wednesday. Monday, I will give students a rubric for their final summative task due before Christmas. This is a small group project involving identifying a systemic problem and innovating possible solutions. Throughout the week, students will be working on text-dependent questions from the book. These will be due by the end of the week. We will also be doing activities focusing on cause and effect using supplemental informational texts.
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.
