Unit 2 Update
We are now nearing the end of Unit 2 and soon the students will be completing a letter to the editor. We are studying articles and editorials in class--identifying their arguments, claims, and support. At home feel free to be reading articles in the newspaper, in magazines, or online discussing the arguments the author's make (your student should be able to tell you all about it).
Another exciting happening in class is our use of Edmodo. Thanks for signing off for your student to have permission to use this site. It makes learning more accessible and exciting! I encourage you to create your own Edmodo profile (www.edmodo.com) and please join our classes online to see what we're into. Click on the "Join Group" feature and enter the access code for the class your student is in.

Thanks for all your support and allowing me the joy of spending the day with your students!
PS- Don't forget about the Clark Middle Library Media Center page (it is very helpful and useful) http://www.facebook.com/ClarkMiddleSchoolLMC
Also, a great website for what to read: www.whatshouldireadnext.com
