Tuesday, 3/24

Today was day 3 of PARCC testing for juniors. This test was shorter than the others, so we had some time today to discuss the First Amendment and the Supreme Court in preparation for our next Socratic seminar topic: license plates in Texas. I handed out two articles — one from The New York Times and another from Aljazeera America — and students began reading these and annotating them. We will continue with this on Thursday. Homework: annotations for part 3 of your independent novels are due on Thursday.
