The Week Ahead: 9/5/17 to 9/10/17

Hey Global Writers!

It is going to be a short and quick week! 

We will be spending most of the week learning about all of the (auto)biographies that you read this summer! I am excited to see you present and share all of the information you have learned. These presentations will take our class time Tuesday through Thursday.

Tuesday night I will get the chance to meet your parent’s and guardian’s. Remember to give them your schedule and some tips on how to get from one class to the next!

For homework I will hand out a copy of “Ripe Figs” by Kate Chopin on Tuesday. The story will be accompanied with some multiple choice questions and a short answer question. It will be due on Thursday in class and should be completed in pen. The goal of the assignment is to prepare you for your FSA reading exam! We will talk about it in class on Thursday. In addition to this assignment, you will have your third current events assignment due on Friday.

On Friday you will take your first Palm Beach Performance Assessment. This will be a practice for your FSA writing exam. This essay will be written in class 100% and submitted at the end of the period. It will be an informative essay which means that it will follow the same guidelines as your expository essay last week.

Over the weekend, you will write your Summer Reading Reflection which will be due on Monday September 11th, 2017 by 11:59pm to both Google Classroom and TurnItIn.com.
