7th grade Gifted:

We are spending the month of August on Greek Mythology.  With each myth we read students will need to create flashcards for each of the characters.  I listed each card they are responsible for on my assignments below for each day.  They will also be responsible to take notes for each myth and find the theme or moral of the myth.  After we finish reading all the myths we will be working on The Hero's Journey pattern and a project that goes with it.    

Prezi on The Hero's Journey Pattern

8th Grade Gifted:

We are working on Dystopian Literature during the month of August.  Students must choose a dystopian novel to read independently.  Using the book they chose to read independently students will create a project from the list and present it to the class.

8th Grade Language Arts:

We are reading the novel The Giver.  Please make sure your child is reading the novel and keeping up with the questions in their layered flip book that correspond with the chapter they are reading.  Vocabulary and comprehension quizzes will occur every few chapters.
