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.
Please finish these questions for tomorrow's class.
We will go over the answers in class tomorrow.
"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.
