Midweek Update, December 15

A quick mid-week update:

Today in class, students were given the test correction packets for Jane Eyre. These must be turned in prior to Christmas Break. Test corrections are not optional; failure to do test corrections will result in a zero for the test.

I have also updated the class website with some information about January; there’s a January 2017 Calendar and other information about our January-February class novel, Brave New World. Visit the Brave New World page here: Brave New World

I will not be permitting students to read the novel on their phones due to inappropriate use of cell phones in class. Students will need a physical copy of the novel.

Also–we will be taking a hiatus from weekly vocabulary quizzes until the week of January 16 – 20.

Thank you for a wonderful first half of the year! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you and yours.
