Students’ current work can be located in their 3-ring binders. We’re working on contractions, appositives, and other areas of writing skills work. Right now, we’re working on essay revision: combining sentences to form complex sentences, etc. In addition, we’re taking a practice ACT test in class, one problem at a time.
We have begun reading The Hobbit. We finished the test (the essay portion) on chapter-10 on Wednesday. Now, we’ll continue with our reading of the novel.
We have begun reading Catcher in the Rye. We’ll continue reading this and test on the rest of the story when we get there.
Students’ written classroom assignments/work for the day should be in their binders. We’ll continue with the material for the 5th trimester, including clauses, contractions, and appositives, and other writing skills.
We have completed reading Sir Gawain & the Green Knight and have begun John Steinbeck’s The Pearl. We’ve begun chapter-3 and will test tomorrow on this. if we get there.
