What's Happening in Class?

This week in L.A., we are continuing our work on an expository essay in the form of a character sketch. By the end of the week, all students should have a well developed, detailed rough draft of their chosen person essay!

This week in reading, we will continue reading and discussing the novel, The Outsiders. Students just completed a quiz on chapters 1-5 and did a great job overall! ***I just posted the quiz grades online, so check them out if you are interested!

We will be covering chapters 6-8 this week, and the plot thickens. Stay tuned to find out what happens when Dally, Ponyboy and Johnny return to the church after their trip to the Dairy Queen..............Is smoke in the air?
