7th Grade Gifted:

Students will be finishing the novel Tangerine this week and working on the culiminating essay.  Students should choose one character from the novel that made choices that impacted the main character Paul.  I have provided an outline for the students to follow as they write their essay.  I also gave them a rubric so they will know how they will be graded on the essay.     The essay will be due next week Thursday, April 27th.  

 

8th Grade Gifted Language Arts:

Our last unit of the school year will be reading the play A Raisin in the Sun by Lorraine Hansberry. Students will be responsible to keep up with the layered flip book that was given to them in class.  They will be working on the flip books in class.  At the end of the unit students will be assigned a project.  They will be choosing between several options for the project and they will be working with a group to complete the project.
