Wednesday/Thursday: Vocab. 5
Next week: Root Study guide/Vocab. Exam 1-5
Period 1- Tuesday-I am sorry that I missed you due to English Department in-service. Classwork: Listen to Chapter 8 in Ender's Game and work on study guide questions. Homework: continue study guide and vocabulary.
Period 2- Wednesday- Classwork: Vocabulary 5 test, finish annotating/reading The Scarlet Ibis, write thesis statement. Homework: find an article that reflects Hurst's message about the real life Doodles in our world: those who suffer because we have forgotten our brotherhood (ie: those who lose their lives to bullying, war, racism, etc.) Sadly, that shouldn't take you very long.
