October 13 and 14, 2014

On Monday we took a vocabulary quiz! Afterwards, students read self-selected nonfiction articles on current events in preparation for expository essays.

On Tuesday, we went over our Ella Minnow Pea reading guides 2 and 3. Then, we began talking about the Odyssey. We read page 1204 and discussed this PowerPoint: The Odyssey Book 1

Homework was optional extra credit (10 points on this week’s vocabulary quiz) – students need to make a one page study guide for the reading section of the PSAT and a one page study guide for the writing section of the PSAT (which students will take tomorrow). I gave you the official PSAT study guide to help you out, and you also have the mock test that you took a couple of weeks ago.

Good luck tomorrow!
