  • American Literature Journal Prompts


    I am attaching to this blog a document that include your journal prompts for chapters 14-16.  You may either print it off and use the handouts for your writing (there are lines and space for writing), or you can just get the questions and complete the assignment on notebook paper (or type it)! Either is fine.

     Attachments to blog posts are not easy to see or in an obvious place.  The attachment will show up in tiny font at the very bottom of the post. It will be under the date. Let me know if you have any problems or questions. 

    Please remember that writing assignments are weighted as test grades, so do your best.  

  • Physical Science Study Guide Answers


    I am attaching the answers to this module's study guide.  Make sure you COMPLETE the study guide first, then you may use this document to check your answers.

    Attachments to blog posts are not easy to spot or in an obvious place. They appear at the very bottom of posts, in tiny font.  They will be under the date. Let me know if you have any problems.

    - Also, I am including as an attachment (at the bottom of this blog entry) information sheets about an argumentative essay we will be writing. Please read over those. I will be getting you more information about this assignment (including a due date; I haven't decided on one yet, so don't stress!). Even before finishing the play/sparknotes, I think you can go ahead and start brainstorming who your leader will be and what qualities you will write about (your short writing assignment from the other day may help you here!)
