Mrs. J. Underhill

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.
