English class this week has all students reading literature from the Romantic literary movement in the early 1800s. This can be challenging to understand, so we are working with groups to discuss and analyze what we read. Tenth graders will finish Dickens’ A Christmas Carol this week and Ninth graders will finish a short story by an American author. All classes are focusing on vocabulary and comprehension during this time and paying attention to the symbols found in literature. We are enjoying this week looking forward to Winter Break. There is no reading log assignment over the break, but any student who reads is free to record their time to have an accurate time at the end of this reading cycle. Have a wonderful holiday season!
