******This Weeks Trio Group Bonus Points Offer*******

SAT PREP-1 Point

In order to begin preparing you for the SAT, whether you plan to take it this year or in the future, I will be providing you with opportunities to test your skills. The more you practice, the easier it gets!

Below is a link to a passage and some questions. You may either print the passage and questions, or just read it on line. To receive Trio Point Credit, you will need to turn in your answers next week in class.


Reaching Out-1 Point

In class a golden nugget was unearthed from a story that otherwise frustrated many of us. After discussing how Martha Hale could have reached out to Minnie and made a difference in her life, you wrote in your folder a person you thought could use some encouragement.

If you choose to act on that memo you made, please text me. I will not ask what it is that you did; but you, the person and God know.

1 Thessalonians 5:11 Therefore, let us encourage one another and build one another up , as you already are.

Research Edgar Allen Poe-2 points

Research Poe and write a strong paragraph on what you learned.

Standing Offers for Trio Team Points Include:

1. Grammar Crimes- 1 point

2, Fix It Signed by All Three Trio Members Parents 1 Point

3. Selfie With All Three Trio Members 3 Points

For Parents:

The Hiding Place

I am planning to have the students read The Hiding Place by Corrie Ten Boom. It would be great if you could grab a copy in the next week or so. Kindle or ibook versions are fine!

SAT Test Prep

This week I have included a link to some SAT Reading Prep. It will not be added as a grade for our class; however, students can earn Trio Points for completing. Later this semester we will work on Deconstructing Essays in preparation for the New SAT.
