What's happening in class?

Wasn't Sunday a beautiful day?! I hope you were able to get out and enjoy it!

The week of April 21st-25th will be quite busy!

In L.A., we will be organizing outlines for persuasive speeches. Students will receive instruction and examples on how to put together a detailed outline for their 4-5 minutes speech. Additionally, we will be working on constructing a formal bibliography.

In reading, students will be reviewing for and taking their final combination test on Romeo and Juliet and West Side Story! Students will receive an abundance of "tools" to use to prepare for their test. If they use them, they should do a fantastic job on this 100 point test!

Later in the week, we will be watching the 1968 movie of Romeo and Juliet, so students can experience the Shakespearean language, and prepare for their next week's quote reenactments!
