What's happening in class?

The key word for the week of April 14th-18th is ......RESEARCH!

During language arts, students will be researching for information to support their side of their persuasive speech topic. Students will have access to books, magazines, newspapers and websites. (Each student received a reference sheet from Ms. Hagensee, listing all sources available to them.)

***Parents: For specific information regarding time lines, due dates and assignment points for the 4 week persuasive speech unit, please refer to the email I sent on Monday, April 7th.

This week in reading class, we will continue to read and discuss the tragedy, Romeo and Juliet. True to Shakespearean style, the plot continues to thicken. Currently, we are waiting to see if Friar Lawrence's potion plan works.

Will the potion work?
Will Juliet remain "dead" for 42 hours?
Will word of the plan get to Romeo so they can escape to Mantua together and live happily ever after?
.............or will she awaken early in her ancestors' tomb and go insane?

Hmmm........tune in later this week to find out!
