This week we are setting up our English notebooks that we will use all year. These will become a resource for us as we learn new grammar rules, practice a new writing technique, or take notes as we read challenging texts in class. Today in class was our first Brain focus lesson with Mrs. Frey from the counseling department. We learned fascinating facts about our brains and their power. Coming up this week, all classes will receive a writing task and will learn MLA format. Ninth grade parents, your student will be asking someone to write his or her biography for their narrative project. Tenth grade students will be writing about a mistake that helped them learn a powerful lesson. Both classes will be writing to express and reflect, writing about a past experience that helps them in their present life. Complete assignment details and due dates will be coming this week in class.
