This week's focus is on the argument paper.  Students chose either bullying, homelessness, or juvenile detention as topics to persuade their reader.  Monday we will work on researching and pre-writing the body of the paper.  Tuesday they will work on pre-writing the introduction and conclusion, and begin the rough draft..  Thursday they will write the rough draft.  Friday they will revise and edit their rough draft and begin the final copy, which is due Monday, November 10.

On Wednesday the Holes vocabulary definitions are due and we will review the definitions.  The test over the words will be on Thursday, November 13.  

Students should be working on their Writer's Notebooks at home.  This is a place to record thoughts, ideas, pondering, wondering, observations, etc. They need to write in it 2 times a week for 10 minutes (Period 5) or 20 minutes (Period 6) each time. These are due this Friday, November 7.  They should have 10 more entries for a total of 20 entries.

I gave each student a progress report of how they are doing so far.  Be sure to ask your child for the report and be sure to check IC.

I will put all homework assignments on my calendar at the bottom of the page. Please check it daily. If you cannot see the calendar, have your child look at their Google calendars as I have shared my assignment calendar with them.
