For the week of

November 13, 2017

Reading Classes:

This week, students will complete unit 1 "The making of a Good Story" in reading classes.  This week we will complete the work in our Reader's Notebooks as we finish the novel Crash.  Our focus for this week is identifying and supporting theme, answering open-ended questions using appropriate text evidence and analysis, figurative language review, and a plot mountain review. The unit 1 benchmark is this Thursday and Friday.

English Classes:
   This week we will launch our research-based information unit. Students will be introduced to power note-taking and following a trail of evidence. We will also continue fine-tuning our grammar skills as we further our study of properly written, complex sentences. 

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