The weeks are flying by in ninth and tenth grade English. Tenth graders are almost done with a combined research paper, which is due Nov. 18. They just started reading a book to find the stages of the Hero’s Journey literary pattern. Their reading will mostly be done in class and the book will be finished by Nov. 21. Ninth graders have read portions of How to Win Friends and Influence People and each group is working on a group project to share their knowledge with their classmates. They will make a poster and a video to share, as well as explain the main idea of their chapter and the supporting details. All students will take an in class book report before Thanksgiving break, so they should be finishing their self-selected books right about now.
