August 31-September 4: There will be no reflection or Use it to Lose it this week
Use it or lose it: Each Monday students will be given a handout for the week with various exercises to reinforce topics previously learned. They will be given class time on Mondays and Wednesdays to work on these exercises. The sheet will be due each Friday.
Non-fiction Weekly Assignments: The article this week is on corruption in soccer; a one page reflection is due Tuesday, August 25.
The Book Thief -- We will be starting The Book Thief on Monday, August 10. This is a very interesting book that I think the students will enjoy. However, it is 550 pages long and we have about four weeks to complete the novel.
