This week we will be having a pronoun test. Students will have to identify the seven different types of pronouns. We have been studying these, and they should have them in their notebooks to study.
We are starting off the year by reading The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. The reading schedule is outlined below:
Part 4 (173-238) due Tuesday, July 29
Part 5 (241-303) due Friday, August 1
Part 6 (307-350) due Tuesday, August 5
Part 7 (353-403) due Tuesday, August 12
Part 8 (407-455) due Friday, August 15
Part 9 (459-493) due Tuesday, August 19
Part 10 (497-539) due Thursday, August 21
Epilogue (543-550) due Tuesday, August 26
For the different sections, the students will have different reading strategies. These will be due on the day the readings are due. Also, there will be quizzes over the readings as well.
Each week, the students will receive a non-fiction article. They are to annotate the article and write a one-page reflection on the piece. These pieces will be due each Wednesday.
