Get Your Read On--9th Reading

Week Four Syllabus Update

What is written without effort is in general read without pleasure.

                                  --Samuel Johnson

Week Four:

Note: Due to the early-out for Homecoming on Friday, and the disruptions of NWEA testing, we will not have vocabulary due this week.


Our next Article of the Week, this time about teenagers and Internet usage. We will use the same process as we did last week with our initial article. I will post my annotations of the first page to serve as a guide.

The annotations and the article response are both due on Thursday.


All periods will be disrupted by NWEA testing. As such, those who are hear will have class time to complete their article responses. Those who are testing will need to complete their article responses on their own by Thursday.


As we have a full period, we will partner up and talk about our books first, and then respond to this week's goal check.



I will collect your annotations at the beginning of class; make sure your response is posted in the "Get Your Read On" forum by class time.

We will talk about theme in general and work on identifying theme in our own books, and then work on turning theme around and forming Big Questions.


Shortened class periods, as we are dismissing early for the Homecoming Parade.


We will have reading time to get everyone off to a good start for their goal for next Wednesday.


Remember that you do not have school on Monday--do some reading!
