Tis the Season.....


It is that time of year again, when projects are due, books are to be turned in and candy canes become a staple in each classroom. Well, this classroom is not an exception. I love this time of year! My room is decorated and lessons are all planned. Both English 11 and Speech are in the final stages of the last projects.

Speech students will be giving their final speech on Wednesday-Friday. It is the persuasive speech and so much work has gone into these speeches. From picking a topic, researching, creating a works cited and organizing the information so their Ethos, Pathos and Logos are all clear, has been very challenging. I look forward to hearing many of the speeches. 

English 11 students just finished Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck. We take the test on Wednesday after watching the movie and will do a quick compare and contrast essay in class about the different mediums of this story. They also have a post test. This test measures growth as a Language Arts student from the beginning of the year until now. I look forward to seeing the results. 

Happy Holidays!
