NOTE: Don’t forget — This Wednesday, May 1, is SPRING PICTURE DAY! All spring athletes need their uniforms to be included in the team photos. We will begin at 8:30 a.m. and are hoping to be finished by 11:30 a.m. Wednesday is also a 1:55 p.m. dismissal.
Here’s what’s happening this week in English 3 and 4.
English 3 Honors will be continuing with Eudora Welty and Mark Twain short stories. Three are short homework assignments for each author. On Wednesday, May 1, students will have a test over Tim O’Brien and Eudora Welty. We will begin Twain on Thursday.
English 3 students are continuing with “Devil in the White City.” They have a quiz today that covers pages 110-166. The reading schedule is as follows for the week:
Monday night to p. 182
Tuesday night to p. 191
Wednesday night to p. 205
Thursday night to p. 216
Friday night to p. 231 (end of Part II)
A part II test will be either Monday or Tuesday next week. (We will adjust if necessary based on in-class assignments and discussions that ensure understanding of the text.)
English 4 students are continuing with their poetry analyses. Students in 3rd hour have a paper due TODAY which compare the three Blackberry poems we have covered in class. Along with the paper, students will be turning in their completed graphic organizers and pre-writing activities for an additional grade.
English 4 Honors students are also working with poetry. They are currently finishing up a short unit that focuses on imagery. Tomorrow, students will take a quiz over this particular aspect of poetry. They will then receive the next unit, focusing on poetic structures. Assignments for this unit will primarily be completed in class; however, there may be a few homework assignments.
Thanks for reading! Happy learning!
