We continued working on our multigenre projects today in class. Students should have now completed pieces from all three genres. Tomorrow we will discuss the remaining unifying elements. (And homework for tonight is to finish the element you started in class.)

***Important Announcement: On Monday, February 23, all Pre-AP English 1 students will take the mock STAAR exam. Please report to the Science Conference Center no later than 7:40. You will stay with me for periods 1 – 4 (your other teachers know about this, and I have alerted the attendance office). Please bring with you two sharpened pencils and a highlighter. Your performance on this exam will count as three major grades (the essay, the short answer response, and the multiple choice questions).***
