This week, it's really all about the culmination of this unit with student debates. Students must use Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday to prepare for their debates on Thursday and Friday. We will also take a few moments along the way to review the latest vocabulary (see list in previous post). I will not assess knowledge of these words until Friday..
There is no new anchor text to buy for the upcoming unit. We are going to be reading a variety of shorter works from different genres.
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.
