Friday, 10/9

Today was part 1 of our mid-term assessment. Students finished their power paragraphs about the themes in Wall-E. Students who finished early checked out copies of To Kill a Mockingbird and got a head start on our first novel of the year. And at the end of class, everyone received a copy of the story “Liberty” — part 2 of the assessment will be on Tuesday and will cover this story. Homework: read and annotate (for plot elements, character motivations and changes, setting/mood/tone, resolution of conflicts, possible subjects/topics) the story “Liberty;” *don’t neglect this homework as you will not have time to read and take the test on Tuesday.
