8th grade English - OHS
Welcome to our classroom!
December 4, 2015
They have an assignment to read Chapter 9, and fill out a connection sheet over the weekend. They are doing daily journal entries which pertain to the book to help them make connections between the story and themselves, as well as daily activities to better understand the book. We have talked in depth about groups within schools and society and how they help make up our identity.
Next week, we will finish the book, and work on their final project. We will also watch the movie, The Outsiders, so the students can compare and contrast with the book. The may bring a snack and drink during the movie days.
Finals: If your student has a C or above, and has missed no more than 3 absences in my class, he/she will not have to take the final. Otherwise, they will have a final, which will consist of concepts learned throughout the first semester.
