--Right before the end of the abbreviated class period, click the X in order to save your progress.

--Read your free reading book for at least 10 minutes between now and next class. ALWAYS BRING YOUR FREE READING BOOK TO CLASS.
--Next time we meet, we will have computer access yet again in order to finish progress monitoring and continue working on drafting your End-of-Unit Assessment/Writing Assignment following some instruction about crafting thesis statements and writing introductions and conclusions. It would be in your best interest to have the body of your essay fully outlined by the beginning of next class. See me if you would like additional paragraph templates.

Backburner Goals (Mr. Martin's Note-to-Self):
  • Review the parts of speech as introduction to our grammar work/in order to aid in vocabulary study
