Reading Classes:

This week we will complete unit 4 Understanding Perspectives. This Engage New York unit uses the book Flush by Carl Hiaasen to target the skills of perspective, point of view, plot development, and the importance of setting in fictional text. This week, students will review the essential skills of the unit and take the benchmark on Wednesday and Thursday. 

English Classes:
   English classes are studying argumentative writing. This week we will continue learning how essayists write a literary assay about character using a story called Raymond's Run. Students are in the final drafting stages of the process piece. This week our focus is adding counter claims, effective conclusions, and final edits. The final draft is due this Friday.

Reminders:  All students are expected to read at home for a minim um of 2 hours per week.
