The Week Ahead: May 6th to May 10th, 2019

Hey Freshmen,

AS OF MONDAY, WE HAVE 28 CLASS DAYS LEFT OF THIS SCHOOL YEAR!

CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?

In those 28 days, we will finish Persepolis, write a final essay, complete a final presentation, and maybe watch a movie….what do you think? Think we can do it?

Here is how this week will work out:

Day 1:

First, we will start class with a vocabulary quiz for Book 1 of Persepolis. You will need to be able to give a definition for 15 of the words on the list. I am not telling you which words though…so you need to review them all!

After the quiz, we will begin a mini writing piece that will have you begin thinking about themes, characters, and graphic elements.

Day 2: We will use day two to continue with the writing process. The written piece will be due by the end of class on Day 2.

Day 3: As our final Persepolis day of the week, we will read and complete an activity that covers pages 155 – 172. For homework, you will read through to page 206. You will also have RAT #2 due on Friday, which will cover pages 61-172. You can choose any page to focus on in that range.

Day 4: As is tradition, day four will be committed to independent reading. Be sure to have a book with you in class. I will not allow anyone to go to the library!


Heya Seniors,

You have even fewer days that the freshmen! How does that feel? I know that senioritis is really getting you, but I know that you can do this!
