Literature
Last week we studied Edgar Allen Poe's classic horror tale, "The Tell Tale Heart." The students are working in collaborative groups to identify the language that Poe used, specifically words that are specific, precise, and establish the mood. This week we will study two selections that are memoirs. Once again several of the selections have AR quizzes. Please encourage your child to sign up to take them.  All of the students have passwords to access the online version of the textbook. They can do this on their computers and even listen to the audio version for many of these stories.

Unfortunately, the scores on the quizzes for the stories we have read so far are not what I would prefer. We read most if not all of the stories in class, and time is given for students to read on their own. There seems to be a lack of focus and dedication to completing the work on the part of some students. Let's work together to encourage the students to give more effort on their tasks.
