--Continue reviewing your "Mini-Research Presentation Notes" prior to next class.
--Items on the “backburner” of which to be aware:
  • All Senior English students will take a Regional Post-Assessment next week. Though the contents of said test are a bit of a mystery, the test will likely be similar to the Regional Pre-Assessment completed on 11/8/2012. You might be asking yourself, Can I prepare for this test? The answer is yes, and Mr. Martin hopes that you do, as this test is meant to help him determine what you learned throughout the year.
  • The final assignment of the year for Mr. Martin’s Senior English students involves reconsidering your 100 Goals List, reflecting on your final year of high school, and selecting a major accomplishment/prideful moment about which to talk to the class--you should begin the reflection process ASAP if you have not already done so!  If you still have your 100 Goals List, pull it out and give it a scan.
