The Week Ahead: November 4-10, 2019


Day 1: We will begin the week with a spelling test that has a focus on the root “equa”. Then we will begin a new list and observation: “Understand that many English words have Greek and Latin roots such as ‘form’ meaning shape.

Day 2: We will take the day to review short answer structures and practices based on feedback that I have given you from your quarter one independent and various quick writes throughout the semester at this point. This will also work as a review day for your AMSND test that will take place in the second half of the week.

Here are some ideas of how to study from home:

  • Review vocabulary
  • Go back and look at past quizzes
  • Check out this page on Sparknotes
  • Re-read sections you struggled with on quizzes
  • Watch Acts on YouTube

Day 3: The first day of testing will be multiple choice questions that look at characters, plot, and details. These will be answered on a bubble answer form. You will need a pencil with you in class.

Day 4: The second day of testing will involve short answer questions that look at theme and plot.
