What's happening in class?

The week of January 26th is s busy one for the 8th graders!

Monday night and Wednesday nights are open house nights for incoming freshmen at Downers Grove South! I highly recommend attending! It's a night filled with valuable information and a lot of fun!

This week in language arts, students will continue work on their theme plays. Monday through Thursday are practice days, and Friday is performance day. Students have come up with great themes and story lines and I'm anxiously awaiting their presentations!

This week in reading, students will get their The Outsiders final tests back. They did a great job on them! Students will also be able to enjoy watching The Outsiders movie. We will compare and contrast the novel and movie, paying attention to characters, plot, and overall appeal.
