What's happening in class?

***A past student of mine, Kevin Coffee, who is currently attending Northern Illinois University, has written a novel entitled, The Prince of Penance. My students read the first two chapters in class and gave Kevin feedback, based on their initial reaction to his story. Click on the links below to read Kevin's novel for yourself!

The week of May 27th through May 30th will be action packed!

In L.A., students will continue to work on theme portfolios. Portfolios are due on Wednesday, May 28th! On Friday, May 30th, students will be sharing selections from their portfolios with their classmates. I'm looking forward to some very creative end results!

In reading, students will continue to read and discuss the play version of "The Diary of Anne Frank."

On Thursday, May 29th, the 8th grade class will be going on a filed trip to Six Flags Great America!!! Let's hope for a fun filled, sun filled day!!!!!!!!!
