This week, we have a vocabulary test Monday. Students must pick 10 of the words from the word bank and properly use them in sentences.
The debate was the big assessment for this past unit, so a grade for THE GLORY FIELD will come from an open book multiple choice test. I will give them some time in class to work on it, but they will finish it as a take-home. It is due Wednesday.
We will begin a new unit this week, WORLD OF WORDCRAFT. The emphasis will be on a variety of genres and writing styles. We will begin it with a lesson on a Dylan Thomas poem. You need not buy any books for this final unit.
Thanks for checking in. Sincerely, Joe Nettles
