Thursday: Intro to a good mystery and Sherlock Holmes.  Begin reading The Adventure of the Copper Beeches.
Friday: Continue reading The Adventure of the Copper Beeches.

Students need to continue writing in their home writer's notebook.  As a reminder, this is a place to record thoughts, ideas, pondering, wondering, observations, etc. They need to write in it 2 times a week for 20 minutes each time, which should consist of a page. They may also type their entries, but the typed pages must be cut neatly and glued or taped into the notebook.  The next due date is this Friday, December 11.  They should have 15 more entries for a total of 30 entries.

All missing assignments for the short story unit are due Thursday, December 17. This is the end of the semester.
I will put all homework assignments on my calendar at the bottom of the page. Please check it daily.
