Burman Catch Up - Spring 2019

I have been pretty quiet on here lately! I have been eyeball deep in novels, dance company, and planning prom. Let me do a quick catch up and ride the wave of crazy schedules into the end of the school year.

26 days left for the seniors.

English 9:

Last week we did a small lesson on Poetry and Persuasion. It was a fun time and there were markers, and coffee involved, so many students were having a blast.


Animal Farm is consuming our energy as of late. We as a class were so lucky to have Mrs. Cocoanower in to help us understand communism and her time living in Romania. We are in chapter 3 of the novel and working on Propaganda! Next up we will be working on Narrative Voice in the novel.

Publications:

This class, they amaze me. We are now in our last deadline span! We have the final "Senior Edition" of The Comet coming out in a few weeks and we are working hard to get all the seniors spotlighted in our social media postings (and in life). The Retrospect (our yearbook) is coming along and will be finished early June! These 9 students are really working hard.


We still need senior pictures, baby pictures, and yearbook order forms (or just order here)!

English 11:

"Lawyers, I suppose, were children once." - Charles Lamb.

Enter my favorite book of all time. To Kill a Mockingbird. Cue the tears people. I love this novel and the change is can have on someones heart. We are actually finishing the novel this week and starting to watch a documentary that highlights so many of the fictional themes, but in an actual case, The Scottsboro Boys.


Tiger Dance Company:

We did it! We had an amazing show and raised over $1000.00 for The Andrea Rizzo Foundation. I am so proud of this group. This year the dancers took on more leadership roles as I have my plate very full, and not once was I let down. 



From the choreography, costumes, and music - these dancers deserve way more than a quick post, but for now - this is the best I can do! Thank you for 5 months of dedication and heart. 

Until the next update, happy reading, dancing, and counting down.
