Friday we finally had our Art of Protest Museum. What a cool exhibit of your students’ talents!! Here are some pictures of some of the projects. I wish I could include more, but I kept forgetting to take pictures! The students did a great job flexing their creative muscles and thinking about different ways to express their point of view. It was a nice way to end the semester.
Next week we will spend Monday and Tuesday preparing for the multiple choice portion of the final exam. Students were given a review packet for the multiple choice skills last week; we will begin Monday by discussing the answers in that packet. Tuesday will be more specific review and practice. For the actual midterm on Friday, students will read a new short story and a new news article and answer 15 comprehension and analysis questions about each one. To review at home, students can revisit the review work we did in class, their notes about the elements of style from unit one and their notes about reading news articles from unit two.
I hope this week is not too stressful in your homes! Next time you hear from me, we will starting fresh in semester two. Last thing: NHS is collecting toilet paper this week for a local food pantry. If you have a chance to grab an extra package, please send it in with your student. They should take it to their first hour teacher for collection.
