What's happening in class?

In L.A. this week, we will be focusing on ISAT preparation. We will be discussing and practicing the differences among fables, fairy tales, myths and legends, as well as fiction and non-fiction. We will also be using our knowledge about The Outsiders to practice writing extended responses for the ISAT reading exam......

In reading this week, we will be reading the play version of "Flowers for Algernon" by Daniel Keyes. It's a fictional story about a mentally challenged man named Charlie who is given the opportunity to triple his intelligence. He accepts the offer, but are the results, both mentally and emotionally worth it? Tune in later this week to see!
