A short post since I'm running on fumes this Sunday morning. This weekend ends two straight weeks of birthday partying at the Maguire house. My kids’ birthdays are a week apart and for some reason I thought full-on, house full of kids, themed birthday parties was a good idea this year. Yikes! I’m whipped. Monday will feel like a vacation :)
This week we will be working on our in-class essay writing again. Students wrote sample essays in class and will receive those back in class on Tuesday. We’ll discuss what went well , figure out where they struggled, and practice those skills that still need more work. By the end of the week, we should be ready to write the second (counted!) in class essay.
Students will receive their A Doll’s House assessments back this week and their monologues/angry letters. Both of those scores count and should make an impact on the grades in MiStar. Look for those scores by the end of the week.
Last thing: next week students will be performing their speeches about social norms and values and how they are reflected or challenged in various forms of media. Please ask your students about the topics they've chosen. Ideally, students should be practicing those speeches at home by the end of this week.
Have a great week! No School Friday!
Mrs. Hattie Maguire
