We began today’s class by going over what you found out about words through the Google Etymology assignment. Then we read several selections of text that discussed the importance of names. Students had a chance to begin pre-writing for an essay about their name (due on Tuesday, September 1 – must be typed). My Name Writing Assignment

Homework for tonight was to read and answer the questions about an essay called Superman and Me: The Joy of Reading and Writing, which will be due tomorrow. The Joy of Reading and Writing – Sherman Alexie
