Mrs. J. Underhill

We discussed the final projects for the Literature Circles today. Students are aware that we only have 13 classes until the due date (December 10), so it is getting down to "crunch time". Most groups met and increased their work loads for the readings and role work.

We talked about the importance of staying focused and on task for the next couple weeks and students agreed that they would probably have to do some extra work at home in order to get all of the requirements finished.

I have uploaded the project guidelines below.

1. Please get your Demand Writing assignment signed (this was supposed to be done for today!!)
