English Language Arts

The week of December 1st in English Language Arts:

This week we will cover the following:
    • To Kill a Mockingbird
      •    Students will watch the film To Kill a Mockingbird and discuss the similarities and differences between the film and novel. We will then discuss themes in both and how they are portrayed in each. Students will then complete a presentation over a chosen theme in a group. I have decided to cancel the trial re-enactment project due to lack of time.

I have decided there will be no Independent Novel project this quarter. We will have two projects after Christmas break. Students will instead have quiet reading time in class to ensure they are reading on a regular basis outside the literature we are reading in class.

Students will continue to 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: No Grammar Lesson 

As always, if there are any questions
