Alright, so we have A LOT happening before and during break. Here's how it's all going down!
First and foremost, Quarterly Assessments are happening on November 11. That's right! The day we come back from break. Don't worry! Don't panic! The assessment will cover things that we've discussed and mastered in class. And don't worry, I will send home a study guide for you to utilize!
Next, 1st Marking Period Extra Credit! Be sure to obtain the task in class from me...it is due November 11th. NO LATES!!! NO EXCEPTIONS!
This week before all that fun stuff...... we will be discussing self acceptance. : -) And who better to learn from but the Queen of Self Love- Gaga, and The Phenomenal Woman herself- Maya Angelou.
Also, we're going to jump back to the founder of horror and terror himself.... Edgar Allan Poe! We will be discussing his most famous poem The Raven and an excellent example of onomatopoeia, The Bells.
You will have an independent project to work on over break and it will be due November 15th. Please note you WILL NOT be given class time to work on this project.
P.S. Extra Credit if you attend class in a FULL costume!
