Jan 30 and Feb 1 Update

  • Seats were assigned by student choice. Each seat has a folder and a YA novel for one of the assignments. You will read the novel in class, usually at the end of class.
  • Students took notes for the Mid Term Exam. The notes are below (end of this update). The entry in the folder for the Mid Term notes and materials is here:
  • The class read from The Outsiders. We will read this almost every day – after the Speed Write.
  • Students watched the film William Shakespeare’s Romeo + Juliet. Film viewings are required. If you missed the film, the make up will be Monday Feb 12th from 3:15-5:15 (after school). The next make up will be on the Make Up Day. The film will be part of the in-class writing test at mid-term. It is also a text for the expository essay assignment.
  • Students completed Speed Write #1. If you missed this, make it up during the next break. All work must be finished during breaks until caught up.
