Only 14 more school days until the holiday break. Be sure to get into class and get to work on this final project worth 15% of your mark.
We are working on putting together a 5 paragraph essay based on the novel Stones. Remember the essay is not about what happens in the book but rather about a BIG IDEA in the novel. What message can the reader take away from the story? In our case it is about being open minded and not judging people too quickly.
Finish the novel this weekend so you can do well on the test on Monday. Part 3 Quiz. Then we will be starting on the ESSAY so bring your thinking caps and try not to miss school so you can stay on track.
REMEMBER there is a PIZZA PARTY in our future when everyone is passing the course. Mark updates on Monday.
We are almost finished the novel. Read chapter 22-23 today in class. We will finish part two tomorrow and then it is up to you to finish Part 3 so you can do a good job on the final essay task. The last bit does get creepy - just in time for Halloween!
Today we put our knowledge to work trying to write a newspaper article about the 2004 Tsunami that hit Indonesia and Thailand. D. was able to find a tonne of facts about the event that everyone appreciated and added into their article. J. worked really well and pretty much finished his whole story. Way to go class. Don't forget to wear Black and Yellow tomorrow for spirit day!!
Get those last few things caught up and get ready for the next unit a novel by William Bell called STONES.
