This week we will cover the following:
- To Kill a Mockingbird
- We will continue reading Harper Lee's classic To Kill a Mockingbird. Before starting the novel, we studied the setting background for the novel and discussed The Great Depression as well as the Civil Rights movement. We will be doing more activities with this setting as well. We are reading through and getting familiar with Lee's style of writing, the characters, and the point-of-view the story is told from.
Students have received their Independent Novels project options. There are 15 options for students to choose from and each option will be worth 100 points. I look for effort, creativity, and knowledge of their novel when grading the projects.
INDEPENDENT NOVEL PROJECT DUE FRIDAY, OCTOBER 10TH
year students will also have a weekly grammar mini-lesson. Each Monday
they will be taught a skill and each Friday they will be assessed over
that skill. During the week I will have 2-3 small study activities for
this skill, but students are expected to study their notes each night
at home to ensure they are retaining and learning the new information!
This week's grammar lesson: None
As always, if there are any questions
