All of the lessons notes will be added to schoology as we finish each lesson. If you or your student have any questions please email me at email@example.com and I will do my best to answer questions in a timely manner, also if your student is confused with one problem have them circle it and ask about it in class the next day. I hope you all have a great week =).
We will be writing a MEAL paragraph connecting “Monsters” to the unit essential question, reviewing narrative point of view, and completing an “incident report” project to put narrative point of view knowledge into practice.
