VanderWall & Wedick's ELA Classes

Week of 10/24-10/28

All About Me

Greyhound ELA students are finishing up their Informational Text Unit with a unit exploring their own identity. We will be reading and writing about self-image, our names, alter egos, our ideal selves, and more.

Our two big projects for this mini unit will be a research assignment on a country that we have a connection to and a presentation where students tell the class about them (using information from articles we read and writing assignments).
