Welcome back! This week we will beginthe novel Heat, by Michael Lupica, where we will use the elements of fiction to determine how the author develops the theme and advances the plot forward. This is the beginning of the last nine weeks grading period. Remember to read to reach your AR goal before the end of the year. Also, the Advanced & Gifted students need to begin working on the Baseball/Softball Complex research project to make sure the project is completed by May 15th. The third, sixth, and ninth week of the grading period will have an extra credit USA Test Prep assignment. Remember to do these assignments to raise your grade!
Remember to read! If you reach 100% of your AR goal by the 50% date, you will earn 10 extra credit points! Also, remember, every third week you can earn up to 10 extra credit points by doing the USA Test Prep quiz that pops up. Have a great week!
