Mrs. J. Underhill

Good news...the due date for the Literature Circles has been moved to Friday, December 12.

Students have been working on persuasive writing. They completed a piece last week. This week they will receive another persuasive topic. In preparation for the assessment in January, all students will be timed on this next piece (120 minutes) and have very limited instruction in order to complete it.

ALL work will be completed in class for this assignment.


** I have uploaded the topic assignment below.

We began World War 2 today and students received the questions for section 1. I have uploaded the questions below and under the "Document" tab to the right.

Please finish these questions for tomorrow's class.

We will go over the answers in class tomorrow.

Literature circle group binders and final projects are due a week from today, Wednesday, December 10!!!

Please finish the draft of your Dead Poets Society persuasive writing piece for tomorrow.

World War 1 test will be Friday, December 5.

World War 1 and Russian Revolution test will be Friday, December 5.

The outline has been uploaded below.

Students began writing a persuasive piece today. After watching Dead Poets Society, the students had to consider the following topic:

"The person responsible for the death of Neil Perry falls in the hands of Mr. Keating"

I have uploaded the assignment below.

Students will continue to work on these during tomorrow's class.

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.Finish Map and Castle exercises from today's class.

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

2. PLease finish up your Remembrance Day posters at home tonight. We will be collecting them at the beginning of class tomorrowl

I have uploaded the Quick Write for the work day. If you missed this one, please complete it in your Quick Write book (aim for at least 1 page).

Please get your Demand Writing "Three School Changes" signed for Wednesday.

**Mrs. Moody and I will be checking these at the beginning of class.
